Education and Advice

The main aspect of physiotherapy is looking at the body as a whole and not focusing on the individual factors of an injury.

Thus, providing general advice about ways to improve wellbeing – such as, by taking regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight– is an important part of treatment.

A physiotherapist also gives specific advice for everyday activities and reduces risk of pain or injury.For example, for back pain, you may be given advice about good posture, lifting or carrying techniques, and avoiding twisting, over-stretching or prolonged standing.

Movement and Exercise

Physiotherapists usually recommend movement and exercise for improving your mobility and function. This may include:

  • Exercises to improve movement and strength– these need to be repeated regularly for a set length of time.
  • Activities involving moving whole body, such as walking or swimming for recovering from an operation or injury.
  • Exercises carried out in warm, shallow water; the water help relax and support the muscles and joints.
  • Advice and exercises to help you increase or maintain your physical activity.
  • Providing mobility aids

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a technique where a physiotherapist uses their hands for manipulating, mobilizing and massaging the body tissues for:

  • Relieving pain and stiffness
  • Improving blood circulation
  • Helping fluid drain more efficiently from body parts
  • Improving the movement of different body parts
  • Promoting relaxation

Manual therapy treats specific problems, such as back pain and a range of conditions that don't affect the bones, joints or muscles.

Other Techniques

Other techniques used by best physiotherapy clinics in Noida sector 35 to help ease pain and promote healing include:

  • Acupuncture – where fine needles are inserted into specific points, with the aim of reducing pain
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) – A small, battery-operated device is used to deliver an electric current for relieving pain
  • Ultrasound – Where high-frequency sound waves are used to treat deep tissue injuries

Some people have found these treatments effective, but there isn't much scientific evidence.
