The Department of Physiotherapy at Lifepoint Hospital aims at treating injuries and diseases through physical methods such as manipulation, mobilisation and exercise over medication and surgery. Physiotherapy is a crucial treatment for most of the patients with heart diseases, strokes, cerebral palsy, etc. It is vital for rehabilitation and for reducing the recovery time after major surgeries.
The different treatments offered at Physiotherapy department at LPMH include-
- Musculoskeletal or Orthopaedic Physiotherapy: It is used to treat backaches, sprains, strains, postural defects and reduced mobility. We also provide rehabilitation post orthopaedic surgeries.
- Neurological Physiotherapy: Patients with disorders of the nervous system such as spinal cord injuries, head injuries, multiple sclerosis, Strokes and Parkinson’s disease are given Neurological Physiotherapy.
- Cardiothoracic Physiotherapy: This therapy is required for patients with asthma, emphysema, bronchitis and other cardio-respiratory disorders
We understand that requirement of each patient is different. Accordingly, our team of physiotherapists study each patient’s case history carefully and decides the tailor made therapy for each patient.
Some patients need manual therapies such as joint manipulation and mobilisation, resistance training and stretching. While some require exercise based, where the patient need muscle strengthening and re-posturing.
We also have Electrotherapy techniques such as Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), diathermy, and ultrasound. All these manual and electrical stimulation techniques help alleviate pain and reinstate normal muscle and joint functioning.
In a nutshell, our Physiotherapy department plays a major role in providing symptomatic relief, faster recovery and healing of our patients.
