These days, physiotherapy is gaining momentum as people are becoming aware of its benefits. However, despite our awareness of the positive effects that physical therapy can have, many of us still hesitate to seek these services for various reasons. In this blog, we will debunk some common misconceptions about physiotherapy. To dispel these fallacies, we will be joined by an eminent expert from Abhinav Bindra Targeting Performance (ABTP) and understand the other side of common beliefs about physiotherapy. This exploration into "Myths on Physiotherapy" will provide insights into how physiotherapy can be a game-changer in managing health and enhancing wellness.

Let's dive into these myths and debunk them together!

  1. THE MYTH Physiotherapy is just like having massage THE FACT While massage is a relaxation technique, physiotherapy at ABTP involves treating pain and disabilities through biomechanical analysis, physical examinations, and comprehensive diagnosis. Through targeted treatment plans and evidence-based techniques put forward at ABTP, we aim to improve mobility, reduce pain, and enhance overall function. The goal is to empower the patient with effective strategies to manage pain and lead a qualitative life.

  2. THE MYTH Physiotherapy can increase risks and complications in Pregnancy THE FACT The Antenatal & Postnatal physiotherapy services provided at ABTP play a pivotal role in promoting a healthy pregnancy journey. By addressing specific needs and challenges faced by pregnant women, our therapists help in reducing risks of complications like high blood pressure and gestational diabetes. They also focus on educating and guiding mothers on maintaining optimal postures during pregnancy to prevent issues such as chronic back pain. Through personalized exercises and techniques, our goal is to enhance overall well-being and ensure a positive experience before and after childbirth. Our comprehensive approach to antenatal and postnatal care aims to support mothers in achieving and maintaining their best health during this phase.

  3. THE MYTH If the leg hurts, the problem must be in the leg only!! THE FACT Our approach at ABTP leverages the most advanced techniques of assessments to precisely diagnose the root cause of pain. We acknowledge that pain symptoms can manifest in one area of the body while the origin of the pain may be located somewhere else. This understanding allows us to conduct thorough evaluations and examinations, enabling us to pinpoint the root cause of the discomfort accurately. By diagnosing the underlying issues correctly, we can develop targeted treatment plans that address the source of the pain, leading to more effective and sustainable outcomes for our patients.
