physiotherapy-in-keralaPain has a devastating effect on the lives of sufferers and families and creates a high amount of distress and disability. Patients with Pain report severe impairments on multiple quality-of-life measures that consider physical, social and psychological well-being domains. Many patients undergo a progressive physical deterioration caused by sleep and appetite disturbances, decrease in physical activity, and high risk of excessive medication. Furthermore, the social effects of pain are equally devastating; many patients become estranged from their families and friends; they decrease their social interactions and are unable to work, leading to loss of their jobs in many cases

At WellnessOne Pain clinic, we know that chronic pain is treatable; we also know that physical therapy is an integral part of a multidisciplinary pain management program. These are especially true now that many pain relief medications have proven ineffective or have put patients at risk of more serious conditions. Our physical therapists can assist in reducing pain and improving function, as well as provide education on physical exercise and pain management. We carefully evaluate, diagnose and design a patient centered treatment plan including the most advanced physical therapy techniques. The right combination of clinical therapies and exercise can improve function and increase flexibility while also significantly reduce pain.

Physiotherapy-center-in-calicutIt is important to keep in mind that every person is different and will therefore respond to physical therapy differently. People have different types of bodies, patterns of movement, alignments and habits. Physical therapists and their trained staff can monitor each individual and work with each to correct improper habits, alignments and movement patterns.
