Orthopaedic Physiotherapists are specialised in impaired posture, impaired muscle functions, impaired joint mobility, motor functions, muscle performance, range of motion associated with connective tissue dysfunctions and localized inflammations as in –
- Ligament strain, sprain, tear
- Inflammation of tendons and bursa
- Joint pain, poor posture
- Joint inflammation in case of Osteoarthritis or
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Inability to walk
- Joint stiffness
We utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to access, advise and provide a full range of care using:
- Soft Tissue and Joint mobilization
- Strengthening & Stretching Exercise Electrotherapy

WARNING SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF CARDIAC REHABILITATION
- Pulse rate should come back to resting level in 2-3 minutes after ending the exercise
- Abnormal BP
- Abnormal ECG recording
- Chest Pain
- Cramp & Fatigue
- Decreased urinary output
- Signs of Cardio-vascular insufficiency
ROLE OF PHYSIOTHERAPY IN CARDIAC REHABILITATION
Phase-I of Cardiac Rehabilitation
This begins when the patient is admitted to the hospital and ends on discharge, which is usually 7 to 10 days.
Phase-II of Cardiac Rehabilitation
It begins when patient is discharged from the hospital and carries out Cardiac Rehabilitation Protocol for 6 weeks to 6 months depending upon facilities and patient’s condition.

Neurological Physiotherapy is a branch of medical science being practiced at global level. The common diseases and disorders being treated under neurological physiotherapy are as follows:
Head injury, Stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple sclerosis, Guillian Barre syndrome, Balance Impairments, Spinal cord disorders, Brain surgeries etc
Now a day’s Neurophysiotherapy becomes very essential both as conservative measures and for surgical intervention .The neurological physiotherapy is involved in determining how these conditions affects the patients movement and function and also in implementing strategy to regain maximum function, depending upon the type of disorder.
Physiotherapy doctor assess the patient to determine the issues causing concern for the patient. Goals are formulated based upon these issues and treatment plan is decided and administered to the patient.
It’s started from the ICU and continued not only till the patient is independent but to make him to return the community.
Physiotherapist helps the patient with neurological problems to live easier and more mobile lives.
Our aim is to restore a person with their optimal functional potential within the limits of his/her abilities and needs.
PARALYSIS, SENSORY LOSS SPASTICITY, BALANCE IMPAIRMENTS, PAIN ETC
We are flourishing and advancing towards newer techniques. The beauty of various physiotherapy approaches in Neurological disorders is its ability to bring about the necessary adaptation required in central nervous system and to contribute towards the achievement as brain has the ability to mould itself at any age depending upon the various stimulus given and a demand put in due to ability that is called “NEURO SPASTICITY”.
The process can be facilitated to greater extent by using following interventions:
- Eliminating or minimizing your pain.
- Muscle flexibility & strength is restored.
- Motion range of Joint is restored.
- Increasing function and endurance at work.
