Location: Seventh Floor, Building No. 1 (Seyed-Al-Shohada)
The Physiotherapy Department operates two times in the morning and in the evening from 7:30 am to 19:30 pm
Acceptance of patients by appointment in advance (in person) is done through the provision of insurance or free physiotherapy prescriptions
For all patients who require electrotherapy, mechano-therapy, manual therapy, hydrotherapy, gait training, these techniques are fully supervised by physiotherapists
This treatment is provided by electrical devices such as TENS, Faradic, IDC, SWD MWD, and dynamic and inter-current (IF), ultrasound (US), infrared (IR), marlab (UV), lasers, which use electrical signals, Magnetic, electromagnetic and acoustic waves are used to reduce pain, inflammation, spasm, accelerate tissue repair, stimulate nerve and muscle fibers
This treatment involves the use of mechanical devices such as weights, springs, stationary bicycles, balance boards, parallel sheets, Tread mill, which are used to increase strength, muscle endurance and increase or maintain the range of motion of the joints
The physiotherapist performs this type of treatment by hand techniques to reduce pain, muscle spasms, and improve reversible constraints and functional disorders in the joints and eliminate Trigger Points, including the following:
1) Joint Mobilization
2) Soft Tissue Mobilzaatoin
3) Mobilization of Nervous System
4) Muscle Energy Technique
The physiotherapy section of the center is equipped with a large hubbard tank whose water is changed daily and calibrated by health engineers and patients are used individually. Pulsaeratour (Underwater Massage by Machine), which in general utilizes the Buoyancy property of water and reduces weight-bearing force by facilitating non-strenuous exercise on the joints increasing muscle
strength and also restricting joint range of motion
The physiotherapist corrects or instructs the patient on how to walk, by providing appropriate feedback to the patient, as well as by learning how to use assistive devices such as canes, walkers, crutches, and so on.
By applying this physiotherapist’s treatment to the patient to achieve painless function and motion, flexibility of the contractionary and non-contractile soft tissues, stability, strength, balance and proper movement patterns, and ultimately muscle strength and endurance.
Physiotherapy in inpatient wards
for preventing hospitalization complications such as joint restriction, muscle analysis, risks of blood circulation in organs, physiotherapy is performed in different sections. In addition to other physiotherapy departments in the ICU, such as the internal ICU, the surgical ICU, and the NICU and PICU are performed by the physiotherapists who refer to the ward. This includes respiratory physiotherapy and organs. Respiratory physiotherapy aims to provide the patient with adequate and complete pulmonary ventilation by correcting the patient’s respiratory pattern as well as helping to discharge the lung secretions and keep the airways clean.
Postoperative physiotherapy to reduce muscle spasm and pain, reduce edema, maintain range of motion, prevent complications of pulmonary and circulatory disorders, reduce atrophy, maintain mobility and strength of the upper and lower extremities of the treated area, improve movement Improved joint stability may be used if necessary and advised on the use of assistive devices).
Examples of post-surgical PT:
After hand surgery, such as Extensor and Flexor Tendon Repair or Tendon Graft, in which case the physiotherapist should control the pain using pain relief modalities and use the US to control edema and improve tendon healing, stimulating tendon gliding , Passive ROM and Active according to patient phases, muscle retraining using Faradic flow and motion control techniques, function retention and grip strength, Flexion Contracture Prevention in Flexor Tendon Repair, Prevention of Extensor Lag in Extensor Tendor Repair as well as tissue massage. Soft to minimize adhesion for proper scar formation and finally return to pre-activity level The lesion is a treatment that the physiotherapist performs at various stages of treatment after hand surgery.
Post Surgery :
The specific physiotherapy protocol and treatment is aimed at balancing the protection of the reconstructed ligament on the one hand, as well as preventing postoperative disuse atrophy and reduced range of motion (ROM) due to intra-articular adhesions, and ultimately, the patient should be satisfied. Overcome the injury and restore the strength, stability and scope of the company to the patient.
Therefore the PT treatment steps are summarized later
– Start weight bearing on the foot (W.B) as soon as possible and gain extra range of motion.
– Apply edema control techniques
– Preventing compression at any graft site
– Prevent early start of open chain exercises
– The fastest strengthening of the hamstring muscle is to stabilize the joint and reduce pressure and stress at the graft site.
– Neuromuscular retraining
