Sports Therapy

Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation services are provided at Medica’s Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Centre under the guidance of an Internationally trained and experienced Sports Therapist. Our array of services include examining and diagnosing injuries and their cause and formulating an effective rehabilitation plan.

Sports Rehabilitation

This service caters to all individuals/athletes who have sustained injuries while playing, gymming or simply walking or jogging and is also beneficial for post surgery patients. Sports rehabilitation helps in treatment of pain and catalyses return to normal functioning. Early injury recognition or detection helps in the treatment. Along with the treatment specific strengthening and flexibility exercises in conjunction with tips provided by a trained kinesiologist helps in quicker recovery. Progressive exercises are included in rehabilitation programmes to ensure the injury site returns to a fully functional state.

Manual Therapy

This service caters to those individuals who are having musculo skeletal imbalance, resulting in low back pain, or any other kind of joint and muscle pain. The therapist uses specific hands-on techniques, including, but not limited to manipulation/mobilization, to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain. This increases the range of motion (ROM) and reduces or eliminates soft tissue inflammation, thus inducing relaxation, improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability, and hence facilitates movement and improves function.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

This service caters to individuals having vertigo (reeling of head during movement), disequilibrium and gait disturbances. The therapist uses a specialized set of exercises to improve the adaptive functions of the vestibular system, which help in overcoming the lack of balance, thus helping the affected person lead a more normal life.

Occupational Therapy
