Hand therapy is a common type of orthopedic physiotherapy that is used to treat the conditions associated with the hands, relief your pain, and help you regain the normal hand movements.

Shoulder therapy

Due to poor posture, many people today suffer from shoulder pain. Others may suffer from pain due to rotator cuff injuries. The physiotherapist will evaluate your condition and choose the best rehabilitation course for you to rehabilitate your shoulder’s movement and get rid of the pain.

Shoulder rehabilitation exercises

There are several exercises the physiotherapist might recommend for shoulder therapy such as:

Shoulder Serratus Dynamic Hug

With the rehabilitation bands or resistance band wrapped around the back to hold each end in your hands, you need to be abducting the shoulders about 60 degrees while bending the elbows about 45 degrees and elevate the shoulders. Start pushing the arms inward and forward like when you are giving someone a hug.

Knee therapy

The knees are among the most important joints in the human body. They support most of your weight while you stand or walk. Their role sometimes causes some serious injuries that may prevent you from walking or make you feel pain when you do.

Knee rehabilitation is used to treat the injuries of your knees and help you relieve the pain and prevent any further damage. The therapy will help you restore the normal movements of the knees.

The physiotherapist might advise you to wear a knee brace to help soothe the pain and provide comfort while moving.

You start by lying on your back with one knee bent and the other leg on the floor and then you tighten the knee and raise the leg to the height of the bent knee.

Wall Squats

Lay your back on the wall with your feet about 2 steps in front of you. Slide your back down till your thighs are parallel to the floor. Stay in that position for 5 to 10 seconds.

Pregnancy Physiotherapy

Although it is portrayed as a lovely period of time, pregnancy can cause a lot of pain to women. Pregnant women may feel a lot of pain whether during pregnancy or after delivery.

Medical rehabilitation can help the pregnant woman ease pain, reduce suffering, and strengthen her muscles.

Neurological Physiotherapy

In order for an organ to move, a signal from the nervous system needs to be sent to that organ. Some injuries and conditions can affect the nervous system preventing it from sending those signals or just disturbs them causing several symptoms such as loss of sensation, unbalance, weak muscles, and many more.

Neurological physiotherapy focuses on restoring the lost functions by making a pathway to transfer the signal or just repair the pathway.

Neurological rehabilitation is somehow different from conventional physiotherapy. The physiotherapist will look for the damaged part of the nervous system rather than treating the source of the pain. Afterward, he/she will try to find the proper way to make a connection between the nervous system and the source of the pain.

Neurological physiotherapy is used to treat several neurological conditions such as:

  • Stroke
  • Head injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Sciatica
  • Aneurysm
  • Brain and spinal cord tumors

Pediatric physiotherapy is a sub-specialty of rehabilitation that involves dealing with kids under the age of 18. The kid might need physiotherapy for many reasons like injuries and genetic problems. Pediatric physiotherapist needs to be trained for several years before he/she can deal with kids.

Geriatric physiotherapy

Geriatric physiotherapy is a sub-specialty of rehabilitation that is used to treat elder people who have some conditions caused by the aging process. As people age, their bodies get more fragile, their bones lose density and their movements get unbalanced.

Seniors are more prone to acute illnesses than younger people, so they need physiotherapy more. Illnesses can make them move less, maybe causing them to potentially lose mobility.

Geriatric physiotherapy helps elder people to become more independent by helping them improve balance, strengthening their muscles, and most importantly raising their confidence.

Benefits of geriatric rehabilitation

  • Decreasing the risk of falling: Elder people have weaker bones, so falling can cause great damage. Geriatric physiotherapy is very important for old people who are recovering from a fall and to teach them how to prevent a fall in the future.
  • Decreasing the risk of injury: Geriatric physiotherapy can help old people learn how to become more stable while moving. Gaining more stability can prevent the risks of an injury.
  • Reducing the pain from chronic illnesses: Chronic illnesses can cause a lot of pain especially for elder people. Physical therapy can help relieve pain.
  • Becoming more independent: when old people recover from illnesses, they can have a more independent lifestyle for longer periods of time.

Types of treatment used in physiotherapy

Magnetic therapy: This treatment involves using magnetics on the patient’s body in order to reduce the pain. There are 2 types of magnetic therapy: Static magnetic field therapy that involves using static magnetics on the body, and Electrically charged magnetic therapy (electromagnetic therapy) that uses electric magnets.

Taping: This method is usually a temporary treatment that is used when there is an injury. Taping help limit the movement of the affected area, promote the natural healing process and relief pain.

Joint mobilization: the main principle of joint mobilization is moving the joint at different speeds to help the patient regain normal function. Joint mobilization is not just a simple move of the joint as there are several types and grades of the joint mobilization. This method is used to treat cases like pain and stiffness in the joints.
