Inpatient physiotherapy

Not many of us are aware of the limitless possibilities of physiotherapy in our everyday lives.

Physiotherapy is generally known to help regain functional independence among those experiencing impairment of movement and other medical conditions or injuries. However, it can also help improve overall wellbeing among many, especially in the elderly. While physiotherapy is administered both at home settings and in specialized inpatient rehabilitation centers, research has found the latter to be more effective in restoring functional abilities within a shorter period of time.

Proven results in patients of inpatient Physiotherapy

Significant improvements are seen in patients who undergo Inpatient Physiotherapy sessions since they receive more intensive and multidimensional treatment. Individually tailored exercises are offered often in the presence of a multidisciplinary rehabilitation team which ensures the overall recovery of an individual. Availability of specialized rehabilitation equipment and supervision of skilled team of doctors are observed to be the major reasons for improved recovery rates in patients who avail Physiotherapy sessions at inpatient rehabilitation centers.  Some other positive outcomes, in patients who received inpatient Physiotherapy as found in studies are reduced falls, better handgrip strength, improved balance and physical abilities, superior signs in subjective parameters like pain-intensity, mobility and overall wellbeing.

Outpatient Physiotherapy at Inpatient Rehabilitation Centers

For those who can’t make commitment to longer stays at inpatient rehabilitation centers, outpatient Physiotherapy can still be a good option if the care plan is designed and personalized well. Many inpatient rehabilitation centers offer Physiotherapy as an outpatient service. Generally, outpatient services tend to be utilitarian and don’t offer the complete gamut of care to patients who spend limited time with the therapist. This can be overcome by specifically requesting for intensive physiotherapy sessions which are monitored by a multidisciplinary team of skilled experts. This will guarantee all the elements of the personalized care plan including carefully customized exercises, well-managed diet plans and result-oriented counseling sessions among others work together for optimum results.
