Physiotherapy prevents ill health by helping people stay active and independent. It helps people recover from injury, illness and disability; reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. At HCL Healthcare, our team of physiotherapists maintain health for people of all ages, by working with them to help with a range of problems--whether it is relief of back pain or managing medical condition such as asthma or diabetes, or preparing for childbirth.
Although physiotherapists, doctors, and other health professionals often work as a team, a doctor's referral is not necessary for you to make the first contact with a physiotherapist in the clinic. A Physiotherapist consultation will involve preliminary assessment of your condition, diagnosis of the problem, and helping you understand what’s wrong. Your treatment plan will take into consideration your lifestyle, past and present medical history, activities, and general health.
Common conditions managed by physiotherapists are:
Neurological (stroke, dementia, children with cerebral palsy, incontinence etc)
Musculoskeletal (back pain, sports injuries, arthritis, falls and fractures)
Cardiovascular (long standing heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)
