Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the use of physical procedures such as exercises to treat patients with diseases or injuries. It is used to rehabilitate the body and to prevent further complications that could arise by the lack of use of a body part.

Physiotherapy includes specific exercises designed to keep a person fit, to help condition the muscles necessary to prevent injuries, to help reduce or eliminate pain and promote soft tissue healing. We use proven methods of treatment such as heat, cold, electrotherapy and therapeutic massage.

Patients needs vary from one to another and from session to session. We offer the following services:

  • TENS
  • interferential current
  • shortwave diathermy
  • microwave diathermy
  • therapeutic ultrasound
  • infrared radiation therapy
  • cryotherapy
  • hot moist therapy

  • intermittent traction
  • therapeutic exercises – our physiotherapist will teach you specific exercises, such as joint protection techniques and proper body mechanics, to help ease the pain at home and at work. As your condition improves, additional exercises will be prescribed to strengthen the muscles and stretch tight muscles and joints.

Our patients are referred to us by orthopedic doctors from Ibn Nafees and other medical facilities. The treatment is covered by insurance, though some insurance policies require the patient to make a co-payment. Cash payments are also accepted; they are charged per session.

We secure approval from the patient’s insurance company prior to starting treatment. Initially, 5 treatment sessions are approved; should the patient require further treatment, we will reapply for approval.
