The World Physiotherapy Day is observed all over the world yearly, to generate awareness about the crucial contribution of the branch of PHYSIOTHERAPY  to medicine and the society, enabling people to be mobile, well, and independent. This is observed on 8th of September every year. This year the focus is on rehabilitation and COVID-19.

However, this is an opportunity to recognise the work that physiotherapists do for their patients and community. We have to educate the healthcare group and the general population on the benefits of appropriate Physiotherapy in healthcare delivery.

Physiotherapy, also Physical Therapy as referred to by the WCPT, is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising physical potential. It is concerned with identifying and maximising quality of life and movement potentials within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation.  It is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery.  The exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation is at its core.

The human body is remarkably easy to damage and break, by injuries or many other factors.  Physical therapists work to undo these damages, educate on healthy behaviour and to restore lost or damaged functionality. Physiotherapy basically employs non-invasive/physical means to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, pain, illness or disability.  We are experts in developing and maintaining peoples’ ability to move and function throughout their lives.

At St. Mary’s, we have a fully functional and equipped Physiotherapy Department, which is manned by many physiotherapists, and with international collaborations with Physiotherapists from Germany.  The department aims to promote health and fitness in every patient’s life. It is managed by a team of highly qualified, skilled, experienced and MRTB Licensed physiotherapists who are grounded in manual therapy, electrotherapy, exercise therapy, manipulation, mobilization, strength training, K- taping, Bobath, balance training, fitness training, ergonomic advice and many other specialized techniques. We offer both in-patient and out-patient physiotherapy services; domiciliary services and follow up. The Units under the department include: Orthopedics, Neurophysiotherapy, Paediatrics, Obstetric and Gynecology, Cardiorespiratory, General Exercise /Fitness Centre, Yoga and Acupuncture.
