PHYSIOTHERAPY
 


Overview


The physiotherapy service contributes to the patient’s recovery and his return to mobility and function in active life. Physiotherapy in all departments focuses on the prevention of complications and improvement of the patient’s condition, including respiratory function and mobility.

The hospital physiotherapist also performs an initial functional assessment for the purpose of recommending an appropriate framework for further treatment and promoting the continuum of care, including rehabilitation.

The Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Department at A. J. Hospital Research Centre combines physical therapy services of the highest standards and the expertise of experienced therapists to help promote a patient’s mobility and functional ability lost due to injury, illness or disease, by restoring the use of muscles, bones and the nervous system. The comprehensive therapy programmes also assist in pain management and enhance the ability to perform everyday tasks, in turn improving the quality of life.
