It is becoming increasingly common for patients to seek physiotherapy as a recourse to their ailments and disorders. Not only is it a treatment method that establishes a collaborative relationship between the patient and the therapist, it is also founded on increasing the patient’s self awareness and own confidence in their motor functions and their ability to heal. Integrated with the services offered by our spa, physiotherapy can become a major proponent that pushes your loved one to becoming self reliant and reverting back to their old self. Before delving into the specifics, it is important that we, at Thera give you a basic orientation to our physiotherapy programme.

Physiotherapy is a primary care specialty in western medicine that, by using mechanical force and movements, manual therapy, exercise therapy, electrotherapy and various physical therapies who practice evidence based treatments, remediates impairments and promotes mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention. There are several sub-categories to this programme and becoming familiar with them can help you choose the best option for your own individual needs.

Physical therapists are closely involved in the care and wellbeing of athletes including recreational, semi-professional (paid) and professional (full-time employment) participants.

Orthopaedic physical therapists diagnose, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system including rehabilitation after orthopaedic surgery, acute trauma such as sprains, strains, and injuries of insidious onset such as tendinopathy, bursitis and deformities like scoliosis. This speciality of physical therapy is most often found in the out-patient clinical setting. Orthopaedic therapists are trained in the treatment of post-operative orthopaedic procedures, fractures, acute sports injuries, arthritis, sprains, strains, back and neck pain, spinal conditions, and amputations.

Paediatric physical therapy assists in early detection of health problems and uses a variety of modalities to provide physical therapy for disorders in the paediatric population. These therapists are specialized in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases. Treatments focus mainly on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance as well as cognitive and sensory processing/integration.

Women’s health physical therapy mostly addresses women’s issues related to the female reproductive system, child birth, and post-partum. Manual physical therapy has been demonstrated in multiple studies to increase rates of conception in women with infertility.

Physiotherapy is scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ways to treat and prevent pain and injury. It strengthens muscles and improves function. It not only reduces or removes pain for a short time, but also reduces the risk for future back-pain re-occurrence. Based on the particular diagnosis, varied methods are practiced by physiotherapists to treat patients. They may follow pain management programmes, which helps get rid of inflammation and swelling for some time.

Combine this with the services offered by the spa at Thera and you have the added benefit of not only helping a close or a loved one to a faster road to recovery but also provide them with an atmosphere that helps relieve physical and mental stress that may result from the condition they suffer from. Moreover, not only are these programmes and services offered by trained professionals, they also come with the advantage of being cheaper alternatives, in a more comfortable setting, to standard medical treatment.

Go ahead and try it on your own. An amazing massage is the least you can expect.
