This is a sports-related injury which is pretty common. Stretching, strength training, endurance training, hot and cold packs, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and joint mobilization are just a few of the treatment options available to patients. Geriatric: Older adults have special movement requirements, and geriatric physical therapy addresses these demands. This category of care includes treatments for arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, Alzheimer’s illness, joint replacement, and balance issues. Geriatric physical therapy aims to restore mobility, alleviate pain, accommodate physical restrictions, and promote physical fitness. Neurological: Many different types of neurological disorders and impairments can be treated with physical therapy in neurological physical therapy. To live as independently as feasible for as long as possible, treatment approaches aim to reach the highest level of autonomy possible. Patients of physical therapists are taught daily life skills such as coping with vision, balance, mobility, and muscular loss. Cardiopulmonary: With the support of physical therapy, people who have suffered from cardiovascular and pulmonary illnesses such as heart attacks or COPD can improve their health and well-being. This subspecialty’s mission is to help patients become more resilient and independent in their daily lives. Pediatric: Pediatric physical therapy caters to the special needs of children and adolescents, including newborns, toddlers, and young children. Early identification is preferable when a child’s natural movement and learning are inhibited. Physical therapy for children (Pediatric PT) is used to address a wide range of ailments, including:
  • acute injury
  • developmental delays
  • congenital disabilities
  • genetic abnormalities (such as cerebral palsy)
  • head trauma/limb deficiency
  • muscle diseases
  • orthopedic impairments
Physical therapists are embracing two new sub-specialties:
  • Rehabilitation of the inner ear for treating vertigo and other symptoms of vertigo and dizziness.
  • Therapy focused on alleviating pelvic pain, decreasing lymphatic edoema and preventing urine incontinence for female patients.
Conclusion: Ultimately, the goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain, restore strength and range of motion, master optimal body mechanisms for balancing and flexibility and improve gross and fine motor abilities through therapeutic exercise, modalities and treatments.
