Many people tend to overlook the importance of Physical therapy and think it that it can be replaced with light exercise. Physical therapy or rehabilitation is a restoration of physical health that uses special physical therapy modalities under the care of rehabilitation specialists. Physical therapy is used to treat various types of physical illness. For instance, a child with disability from birth, patient who suffers from injuries or cardiovascular disease, elderly who has swallowing difficulty or body imbalance and those who have back pain that radiates to the leg caused by herniated disc. Physical therapy or rehabilitation will help these patients in achieving maximum restoration of health and return to their normal state with a better quality of life.
Apart from the aforementioned benefits of physical therapy, the treatment can also be used for pain relief in patients who suffer from office syndrome, neuropathic pain and arthritis.
A rehabilitation specialist or also known as a Physiatrist will investigate the cause of pain and plan a suitable treatment for the body to restore its strength and functions most effectively with the help of the following physical therapy modalities:
- Shockwave Therapy
- Peripheral Magnetic Stimulation / Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
- High-Intensity Laser Therapy
