The Value of Physiotherapy

 

To influence change it is important that statements are supported by evidence-based data. One of the physiotherapy hospital,  recently undertook a large literature review that focused on four conditions that have been identified as adding to the mounting health care costs in DPRC and the role that physiotherapy can play: Falls in the Frail Elderly, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)/Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), and Stroke. The research shows that not only does physiotherapy treatment benefit the patient, but it is also a cost-effective measure that can help ensure the sustainability of the health care system.

WHY CHOOSE PHYSIOTHERAPY?

Choose Physiotherapy over DRUGS & SURGERY, as a common sense approach to better HEALTH & MOBILITY. It is the key to living an independent quality & joyful life. Regardless of how quickly you respond to these treatments you will enjoy the DRUG-FREE results that millions of patients have benefited from for many decades.

The Importance of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the most commonly prescribed treatment to assist in the recovery of many injuries and conditions. Chronic pain, car and sports injuries and challenges with mobility can all be greatly improved with the use of physiotherapy. Here are just a few reasons why sticking to your physiotherapy is so important:

Range of Motion

If you have suffered from an injury or have a condition that is affecting your range of motion, without physiotherapy you will continue to feel less and less capable of participating in your day to day activities. Stiffness and pain in your shoulder, for example, can lead to a case of frozen shoulder if you do not follow your physiotherapy plan. In Bangladesh, physiotherapy patients with range of motion issues will regain their mobility and be able to return to their usual level of activity and better care for themselves.

Exercise

Your physiotherapist will assign a number of therapeutic exercises for you to practice at home between appointments. Many people think that once they are shown how to do the exercises they no longer require assistance from their physiotherapists. However, during Bangladesh physiotherapy appointments, your physiotherapist will first check your improvement and then can increase or change your exercises accordingly to match your progress. Sometimes they will reduce your exercises if you seem to be having difficulty. Without regular appointments chances are you will not be able to progress to complete recovery and could even make matters worse.

Neurological Disorders

For patients who have suffered a stroke or have conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, physiotherapy plays a key role in aiding with correcting or improving the damage. Your treatments at an DPRC Hospital will help to compensate for deficits in gait, mobility and weaknesses, to bring back full or partial function, and to stop further deterioration from taking place.

Cardiopulmonary Conditions

If you suffer from breathing issues that are interfering with your day to day life, DPRC physiotherapy patients have seen great improvements following guided exercises, in hand with exercises with a physiotherapist. Cardiac patients also receive instruction on basic movement to regain their confidence after surgery.

Pain Management

In any number of cases for both chronic pain or pain resulting from an accident or injury, physiotherapy will aid in pain management improving your quality of life so you can resume your daily activities, sports, and hobbies.

In DPRC , physiotherapy plays an important role for a number of treatment programs and when disregarded can stop you from regaining your strength and health.

The Physical Therapy Profession

Physical therapy is a dynamic profession with an established theoretical and scientific base and widespread clinical applications in the restoration, maintenance, and promotion of optimal physical function. Physical therapists:

  • Diagnose and manage movement dysfunction and enhance physical and functional abilities.
  • Restore, maintain, and promote not only optimal physical function but optimal wellness and fitness and optimal quality of life as it relates to movement and health.
  • Prevent the onset, symptoms, and progression of impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities that may result from diseases, disorders, conditions, or injuries.

The terms “physical therapy” and “physiotherapy,” and the terms “physical therapist” and “physiotherapist,” are synonymous.

As essential participants in the health care delivery system, physical therapists assume leadership roles in rehabilitation; in prevention, health maintenance, and programs that promote health, wellness, and fitness; and in professional and community organizations. Physical therapists also play important roles both in developing standards for physical therapist practice and in developing health care policy to ensure availability, accessibility, and optimal delivery of health care services. Physical therapy is covered by federal, state, and private insurance plans. Physical therapists’ services have a positive impact on health-related quality of life.

As clinicians, physical therapists engage in an examination process that includes:

  • taking the patient/client history,
  • conducting a systems review, and
  • performing tests and measures to identify potential and existing problems.

To establish diagnoses, prognoses, and plans of care, physical therapists perform evaluations, synthesizing the examination data and determining whether the problems to be addressed are within the scope of physical therapist practice. Based on their judgments about diagnoses and prognoses and based on patient/client goals, physical therapists:

  • provide interventions (the interactions and procedures used in managing and instructing patients/clients),
  • conduct re-examinations,
  • modify interventions as necessary to achieve anticipated goals and expected outcomes, and
  • develop and implement discharge plans.

Physical therapy can be provided only by qualified physical therapists (PTs) or by physical therapist assistants (PTAs) working under the supervision of a physical therapist.

REHABILITATION

After a serious injury, illness or surgery, you may recover slowly. You may need to regain your strength, relearn skills or find new ways of doing things you did before. This process is rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation often focuses on

  • Physical therapy to help your strength, mobility and fitness
  • Occupational therapy to help you with your daily activities
  • Speech-language therapy to help with speaking, understanding, reading, writing and swallowing
    Treatment of pain

The type of therapy and goals of therapy may be different for different people. An older person who has had a stroke may simply want rehabilitation to be able to dress or bathe without help. A younger person who has had a heart attack may go through cardiac rehabilitation to try to return to work and normal activities. Someone with a lung disease may get pulmonary rehabilitation to be able to breathe better and improve their quality of life.

Common conditions that are treated by the rehabilitation therapists include amputation, spinal cord injury, sports injury, stroke, musculoskeletal pain syndromes such as low back pain,fibromyalgia, and traumatic brain injury. Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation involves optimizing function in those afflicted with heart or lung disease. Chronic pain management is achieved through a multidisciplinary approach involving , physical therapists, occupational therapists, exercise therapists, anesthesiologist, psychologists and interventional procedures when indicated. In addition to the previous methodology, stroke is often treated with the help of a speech therapist and recreational therapist when possible.
