PHYSICAL THERAPY:

Physical therapy involves the interaction between physical therapist, patients/clients, other health care professionals, families, care givers, and communities in a process where movement potential is assessed and diagnosed, and goals are agreed upon. Physical therapy is a traditional treatment methodology aimed at the treatment and curing of certain ailments, and preventing the chances of re-occurrence of the same at a later point in time. Its primary aim is to bring the patient back to his/her normal self, free of any pain or suffering, so that he/she could then lead a normal life by performing all the daily activities with minimal or no difficulty. Physical therapy deals with cardiopulmonary and neurological conditions as well. Physical therapy is generally required for those with permanent disabilities, those who have had a major injury or accident and is in a recuperating phase, or for those who are suffering from crippling diseases like arthritis or low back pain. In certain cases, some diseases or medical conditions impair the patient so much that it becomes necessary to teach the patient to function optimally within the limitations of the condition, by building on the residual capabilities left in the patient. Physical therapy is effective in such circumstances as well, and with prolonged treatment under the supervision of an expert physician, it is possible for the patient to regain a major share of the mobility of his/her joints, achieve flexibility, and acquire better balance and coordination as far as his/her overall self is concerned. Apart from this, physical therapy also helps in significantly improving the overall fitness and health of the patient.
