Physiotherapy plays  a vital role in the healthcare system. Physiotherapists have an in-depth knowledge of how the body functions. With a unique combination of manual hands on skills, electrotherapy and exercises, physiotherapists can assess, diagnose and treat illness, injury and disability. The goal of physiotherapy is to restore and maximize your strength, function, movement and overall health to get you back to doing what you love.

A licensed physiotherapist will meet with you to conduct a detailed medical history and orthopedic assessment. Usually, we will initiate treatment that same day, beginning with hands-on therapy to relieve your pain, stiffness, and muscle spasm. We’ll discuss your therapy goals, and you’ll receive a clear explanation of your condition and treatment plan, plus a personalized home exercise program. We’ll do everything possible to help you achieve a quick and pain free recovery.

Modalities: Ultrasound, Laser, Interferential Therapy, TENs, Paraffin Wax, Heat Therapy,At Sunshine Physiotherapy Clinic , you will receive one-on-one treatment with your physiotherapist to ensure you regain optimal health. Treatment includes:

• Manual Therapy: Soft Tissue Techniques, Joint Mobilization, Stretching etc.

• Exercises: Strengthening, Stretching

• Modalities: Ultrasound, Laser, Interferential Therapy, TENs, Paraffin Wax, Heat Therapy,

• Return to Sports/Work/Activity Retraining

• Functional Movement Retraining

• Home Exercise Program Development

There are other techniques that may be implemented depending  on patient’s condition. Our goal  is to empower you to “treat” your own body. Educating you about your condition will allow you to know what to do when you’re in pain and how to prevent additional injuries. Please don’t be afraid to ask questions!

In most cases, no. If your physical therapist feels you may need further tests, we will discuss this with you and your physician before beginning treatment.

Yes. You’ll receive an exercise program customized for your needs. We do not hand out generic exercise sheets. At your first visit, we’ll show you the correct and comfortable way to perform your personalized home exercises. On your next visit, we’ll  check again that you’re doing these correctly. As your condition improves, your exercise program will advance. Home exercise helps you sustain your recovery without further treatment. Long-lasting results are our goal.

Yes! Low back pain is our specialty. Manual physical therapy , manipulations and trigger point release techniques  has shown extraordinary success in treating the spine. The gentle hands-on release of spinal tension makes it easier and more comfortable for you to perform core stability exercises which strengthen your back.  This combination of hands-on therapy and core exercise ensures long-lasting recovery without the need for surgery or drugs.

Based on your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will determine the number of visits that will optimally benefit you to regain your overall independence and health. Depending on the chronicity of your injury, treatment sessions can last for days, weeks or sometimes longer (possibly through optional maintenance sessions).Physiotherapy sessions will be reduced gradually , once physiotherapist feels that a patient can do home exercise program properly .

You do not need a doctor’s referral to attend physiotherapy.

It depends upon severity of the problem and age of the patient .  If  it is a osteoarthritis  of knee then patient may get 75 % subjective pain relief in two weeks . If it is a partial ligament tear , then it will take three to four weeks ,If it is a full ligament tear then ligament reconstruction is required followed by six to eight weeks of physiotherapy rehabilitation program.

Case Study :Tennis Elbow  Pain Relief

Case Study :Tennis Elbow Pain Relief

Jan 10, 2022
Dr Mugdha Kolhatkar

When Ashish called me, he sounded too worried as he had acute pain in his elbow and forearm for a month, Pain did not subside but instead got aggravated. He was not able to focus on his work because of the pain.

He consulted me, I told him to do the icing and asked him to come to my clinic the next day.

I evaluated him in detail, I asked him about his medical history. I diagnosed that Ashish was suffering from tennis elbow.

 Tennis Elbow:

Tennis Elbow is mostly caused by overusing the forearm due to repetitive or strenuous activity. It can also sometimes occur after banging or knocking the elbow. Ashish had banged his elbow two /three times before he visited my clinic.

He has slight swelling on his elbow (lateral epicondyle). He had pain while moving his elbow outward.

 Physiotherapy treatment for Tennis elbow.

1)Icing in an appropriate manner

2)Forearm strap or crepe bandage is used to give support.

3)Ultrasound/ Laser Therapy helps to reduce pain

4)Mild stretching and strengthening exercises for forearm muscles

5)Trigger point release: Trigger point release is a technique that helps to get rid of pain and allows one to do daily activities without discomfort

Above mentioned Physiotherapy treatment sessions were highly effective for Ashish and he got pain relief from Tennis Elbow pain in a couple of sessions. I have designed a home exercise program for Ashish, which will prevent the relapse of Tennis Elbow Pain. Now Ashish is able to focus on his work as he got rid of Tennis elbow pain.

Sunita dixit

Sunita Aunty  had undergone total knee joint replacement surgery for both knees after suffering painful knee joint pain for more than a decade .
I started her physiotherapy treatment after she got discharged from the hospital.Day 1 knee flexion was only 20 degree and  she had flexion deformity.

Week One: Started with static knee exercises and passive exercises for both knees.
Within a week knee flexion was 90 degree and Aunty could do assisted active knee exercises.

Week Two:By 2 weeks we started active exercises in sitting and standing position.Gait training  was started to improve her walking style and eliminate the limp.

Week Three : After removal of stitches she  was more comfortable in climbing staircase and  walking around. In week three , I focused on quadriceps strengthening exercise and full range of motion (ROM) exercise for knee joint. Static Quadriceps and VMO  exercises frequency and repetition was increased. Hamstring stretching was helpful to correct knee flexion deformity.

Week Four: After 4 weeks, Aunty  was confident to do  Quadriceps  and hamstring  strengthening exercises, hip, knee and ankle joint exercises , staircase climbing and  gait without support.She could actively correct her flexion deformity and extend her knee with full range of motion.

Week Five: Sunita Aunty started walking without support. She was able to do daily activities of living and household chores on her own.

It was a pleasure to connect with a positive soul and such a cooperative person who followed physiotherapy treatment religiously.
She  is taking care of her 2 grandchildren now and  enjoying her retired life and  living pain free and independent life to the fullest.I am really glad to contribute my share  as physiotherapist in her journey towards living pain free life and enjoy every moment of life to the fullest.
