Physical Therapy is a multidisciplinary health care profession which involves assessment, treatment and prevention of disorders of muscular-skeletal, neuromuscular, paediatric, cardiorespiratory systems by means of physical agents such as exercises and various electrical modalities.
Physical Therapy includes assessment, examination and evaluation of patient, diagnosis and planning intervention for patient’s treatment.
Here at Amba Health Centre & Hospital (AHCH), our aim is to help alleviate pain and restore normal movement and functional patterns to help return the body to its natural state. We believe in total rehabilitation of a patient to make him or her as much independent as possible.
IN Amba Health Centre & Hospital (AHCH) we provide the best high quality multidisciplinary integrated quality care to IPD as well as OPD Patients coming from around periphery areas..
On the first day, we do thorough assessment and evaluation of patient including detailed history and investigative procedures to come to the exact diagnosis. We rely much more on manual therapy, like active and passive stretching, passive mobilization of joints including joint gliding etc.
We are getting wide variety of cases like all muscular skeletal cases including osteon-arthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tennis elbow, etc. Post traumatic cases, post-surgical cases like TKR, IFOR (internal fixation open reduction) cases etc. Neurological cases like Hemiplegia, Paraplegia, Cerebral Palsy, Bell's palsy, Parkinson's Disease etc. Cardiorespiratory cases like Bronchitis, Asthma, Bronchiectasis, etc.
Here in Simandhar City, we have an old age house “Nirant” where majority of geriatric patients frequently require multiple diagnosis in combination with varying attitudes and processes of aging, which if unaddressed may lead to loss of independence, self-esteem and quality of life. So our goal for geriatric patients is to promote good health, wellness and to maintain or restore optimum function and independence.
