About Physiotherapy

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.
A physiotherapist can treat various issues like Sports injuries, Musculoskeletal, Neurological issues, pediatric 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.

First of all, the assessment of the patient is done by a physio who set a track for the process of the treatment. There are different approaches used in physiotherapy treatment however it may vary from patient to patient depending upon the condition of the patient and the type of treatment needed. The common procedure includes the following:

Musculoskeletal/orthopedic physiotherapy: Used to treat conditions such as Bone Injuries, sprains, back pain, arthritis, strains, posture problems, sports, and workplace injuries. Neurological Physiotherapy: Used to treat disorders of the nervous system including strokes, spinal cord injuries, acquired brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. Other than that, based on physio’s personal interest, experience & certified training physiotherapists can be specialized in one or more of the following specialties Pediatric Physiotherapy, Geriatric Physiotherapy, Vestibular Rehabilitation, Cardiovascular Physiotherapy, Pulmonary Physiotherapy, Sports Physiotherapy, Women’s Health Physiotherapy, Chiropractor Adjustments, Dry Needling Physiotherapy, Acupuncture Therapy, Cupping Therapy, etc.

Choosing Physiotherapist

Physiotherapists and chiropractors both work with patients who are experiencing pain or having difficulty performing different physical tasks. The only difference between the two is their treatment methods. Chiropractors mostly rely on aligning parts of the body (adjustments) with a main focus on the spine, while physiotherapists use exercise programs and assistive devices to improve patients’ mobility or reduce pain levels.
Finding the right physio depends on the condition of the patient and the type of treatment the patient has to go through. Suppose there is a case of post-surgery, so this patient will be assigned to an ortho physiotherapist and in some critical cases like a patient with post-stroke is not only assigned with a neuro physio but CBP will make sure that he gets an experienced physiotherapist. Let us explain with one more example; suppose there is a kid who is suffering from physical pain or injury so he will be assigned to a pediatric physio. In some cases, the patient is not aware of what exactly he is facing, whether it is a muscle spasm or muscle strain so in that case, the physio takes an assessment in which gets to know the approach of treatment.
Physiotherapy has a network of experienced physiotherapists available in multiple areas. Along with patient condition/treatment requirements, we ask for your location as well. Based on a combination of these two, we find the best fit for your treatment. Other factors include gender preference i.e. female physios are assigned for the treatment of female patients unless the patient gives consent for a male physio. Also, we prefer to send a nearby available physiotherapist so that for long-term treatments, sessions don’t get skipped and on-time treatment will be given to the patient. CBP makes sure that the patient gets the right physio who can treat his issues very well.
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.>
