Govt urged to identify physiotherapy

physiotherapy2-copy2Under GHMC limits, in Nims, Osmania, Gandhi, Nilofer and Fever hospitals five permanent physiotherapists and 15 temporary physiotherapists are working. In view of the significant treatment offered by them, public bodies said that government must realise and identify the importance of the therapy which is essential for the people. Physiotherapy is just like a boon as it offers a cure which is outside the purview of the drugs including chronic paralysis which can be set right with therapy. This treatment has become popular these days and people are also crazy about it. Physiotherapy treats without any doubt problems related to back pain, nervous weakness, cervical problems, joint pains including for any catch in any of the body. These are some of the known drawbacks. But the big question is who can offer this treatment and where?


In some hospitals doctors provide relief subjecting the patients to a set of exercises and treat the chronic diseases without rushing for drugs. And all the organs function as usual as if by magic. Yes it offers treatment but the treatment is at variance depending on the type of disease. In short massage is one of their tricks and at times special machines are employed, say, for spinal chord problems. Where an arm is fractured, grease is applied and then the limb is subjected to steam treatment. Most of the software engineers ( 80 % ) suffer from back pain and neck pain, which were being treated by physiotherapy. Officials said that in TS 82,78,241 were suffering from knee pains, limb pains, weakness of nerves, paralysis and a majority of them were elders. Besides, eight out of 1000 children were born with congenital deformities like physical and psychological diseases. For them physiotherapy best suits and desired results are found. With a population of over four crore, there is a scarcity of physiotherapy doctors in government hospitals.
