Therapy is geared towards the restoration of function which has been impaired due to disease, trauma or injury. Therapy plays an important role in restoring a patient to normalcy or at least to functional capacity. The Therapy unit has Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and a Clinical Psychologist.
Physiotherapy is concerned with identifying movement potential and maximizing quality of life among clients. The goal of physiotherapy is to help each client reach his or her fullest potential in activities at school, home and in the community by improving mobility and function. Conditions managed by our physiotherapists include musculo-skeletal conditions, neurological and post reconstructive surgery conditions. Physiotherapy is basically in form of exercises, electrotherapy, recommending and training use of appropriate appliances/assistive devices, providing education and advice on preventive measures. Group classes are also performed which are enjoyable for clients as they can compete and encourage each other. Exercises in form of play therapy are recommended for children so as to stimulate their growing minds.
Occupational therapy blends art and science to develop skills in activity analysis and evaluation of human occupation.
