Questions relating to Physiotherapy

Arogya Physiotherapy offers expert physiotherapy advice and information on sports injuries, diagnosis and treatment. We're here to answer any questions you may have about physiotherapy.

Ans: Physiotherapy, also referred to as physical therapy, is a treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery by setting a pre-defined track for the treatment. A physio may ask you to do certain exercises on your own in order to recover quickly. Physiotherapists use manual therapy and various modalities according to the patient’s condition.

Ans: A physiotherapist can treat various issues like Sports injuries, Musculoskeletal, Neurological issues, paediatric care, and other problems as well depending upon the specialization of the physiotherapist. Some Common issues that can be treated by a physiotherapist are as follows:
Neck and back pain caused by problems in the muscles and skeleton. Problems in the bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments, such as arthritis. Fatigue, pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of muscle strength. Loss of mobility because of trauma to the brain (Stroke) or spine, or due to diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

Ans: Yes, if a physio suggests you to do exercises on your own then start doing the same. Sometimes the exercises are practiced by the physio at the time of treatment which is supposed to do on your own without having an eye of any physio. The reason for suggesting the exercises to be done on your own is only that the recovery moves at a fast pace and there is a relief in pain. Sometimes patients can also consult YouTube videos or online exercise programs, we strongly advise against that.

Ans: No, it is not mandatory to get the physio treatment prescribed by the doctor. In some cases, the doctor prescribes physiotherapy to the patient which is good but we also make sure that our physio makes the assessment of the patient which helps him/her to diagnose the issue and accordingly start the treatment. Our practice is to give the safest and best possible patient-centric care.

Ans: It depends on the patient condition and convenience. In some cases, it is the only viable option for the patient e.g. A post-stroke patient having a balance-related issue or paralysis, in such cases, it is better to take physiotherapy at home but if the issue is mild and you can visit a nearby clinic without skipping the sessions then there is no harm to visit a clinic. Also, for patients having time constraints, physiotherapy at home service can be a time-saving option.
