Physiotherapy a Balm for Pain

Physiotherapy a Balm for Pain: There comes a time in every person’s life when he/ she requires physiotherapy for pain and movement rehab. The treatment is customised depending on the need and cause of the physical problem, which may range from neurological disorders and stroke to physical injury and surgeries. Almost all government hospitals offer physiotherapy without charge to both outpatients and inpatients.

“We have some of the most advanced technologies for rehabilitation. Our main focus is on rehabilitating sportspeople after injuries,” said Dr Deepak Chaudhury, director, Sports Injury Centre, Safdarjung Hospital.
“To treat pain, there is electro therapy, a gymnasium with advanced facilities, a hydrotherapy chamber and an isokinetic system to strengthen muscles after injury,” he added.
Among private hospitals, Apollo, Max and BL Kapoor Hospital provide home services to patients while Ganga Ram Hospital offers subsidised services to poor patients at the hospital clinic.
Apart from sports-performance enhancement, Vasant Vihar-based AktivOrtho deals in orthopaedic, neurological and paediatric rehabilitation. “The pricing of therapies is decided on the basis of the details of the case, the kind of therapies required, the duration of the treatment and distance travelled for home services,” said Lipi Verma, a physiotherapist at AktivOrtho.
Most private hospitals deal in a range of therapies and rehab for paediatric development delays, traumatic brain injuries, cardiac problems, spinal cord injury, post-cancer care, post-joint replacement care, occupational therapy, neurological and gynaecological problems. There are several packages for these therapies at the private hospitals that range from ` 5,000 to ` 15,000 for multiple sittings.
Home service charges range from ` 250 to ` 1,200 for each visit, depending on whom you go to. “We provide home services to people confined to bed after a stroke, road-traffic accident, cancer, knee replacement or spinal surgeries or severe sports injuries,” said Mrigank Agarwal, owner, Cure ‘n’ Care Centre for Physiotherapy and Pain Management, Pashchim Vihar.
“We also offer electro therapy for pain management and manual therapy for soft tissue mobilization and the charges at the clinic per joint for each session is ` 150,” he added.
Physiotherapist Deepti Chhabra, owner of Healing Hands Physiotherapy Clinic in Janakpuri said: “We also provide home services to children with autism or people with facial paralysis or Erb’s paralysis ( Erb- Duchenne palsy), Guillain- BarrĂ© syndrome and rickets. We have packages ranging from ` 1,500 to ` 8,000, including for new mothers who want their abdominal muscles toned.”
