Many people with chronic or acute pain find physiotherapy in Dubai a helpful alternative to surgery. There are many reasons that people suffer from muscle pains. The following can cause chronic or acute pain: sports injuries, herniated discs, scoliosis, or other injuries to the back or neck. At OCP Medical Center, our experienced team of physiotherapists works holistically with patients to provide complete care. Here are three ways a physiotherapist will help patients live a fuller pain-free life:
Rehabilitation after an injury
People suffering from an injury are in need of rehabilitation. Through physiotherapy and rehabilitation patients regain strength of their muscles once again. Our experienced staff in Dubai first assesses your problem and then determines a course of action. After determining what the cause of the problem is they will use the appropriate method of intervention such as electrotherapeutic treatment, manual therapy, or exercise therapy.
Working with the physiotherapist has other benefits aside from helping you after an injury. Therapists analyze your particular physical abilities, strengths, and weaknesses so they can formulate a customized physical prevention plan for you. This will help you use your body in the most effective way so as to prevent injury in the future.
Physiotherapist also benefits their patients by promoting health and fitness strategies. Through education and strength training, patients become stronger, feel healthier, and consequently, live longer.

The treatment and rehabilitation programs have been shown to also be highly effective for coping with the discomfort of arthritis, diabetes, stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and many respiratory conditions.
Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation involves a wide range of treatment combinations for example:

Physiotherapy is a holistic approach to treating illness and injury which helps “restore movement and normal body function,” according to the National Health Service’s United Kingdom website. Physiotherapists see the body as a whole entity, and see each person and his/her disorder as requiring highly particular–mostly drugless–solution(s). Often, physiotherapy continues outside the clinic sessions, with suggestions for “at home” exercises and wellness routines a client can follow to further alleviate discomfort and prevent re-injury.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Anyone who wants more control of a “natural” healing process can benefit, as strengthening and toning muscles to increase flexibility and mobility is part of most physiotherapy regimes. Especially those with back pain, poor posture, reduced circulation, arthritis, unnatural fluid buildup(in certain body parts), a stroke diagnosis–and those recovering from major surgery–will want to try physiotherapy.
Although physiotherapy is linked, many times, to the musculoskeletal system, the brain and nervous system, the heart, the organs associated with breathing (lungs, diaphragm), and one’s mental health and overall outlook on life can benefit.
COMMON PHYSIOTHERAPY TECHNIQUES
Demonstrating–and helping the client accomplish–“movement and exercise” strategies which are tailored specifically to the presenting disorder(s) and “manual therapy”, in which the therapist actually manipulates body parts to increase blood and oxygen flow, are common. “Movement and exercise” and “manual therapy” performed by/on the client within water relieve pressure on compromised areas and–at the same time–promote healing. The application of heat, or cold, to induce muscle relaxation and reduce inflammation–and the re-balancing of “inherent energy” through acupuncture–are also employed.
Any resident of–or visitor to–Dubai who would like the opportunity to participate in his, or her, healing and recovery, please contact us. We provide a very personal, and thorough approach.
Physiotherapy covers a lot of ground as a treatment for managing pain and keeping your body in excellent shape. Through a basic health assessment here at OCP Medical Center, we determine what type of physiotherapy procedures would benefit you over something else. The good news to this is no matter what it is, the benefits are numerous in helping pain and stiffness in your muscles. Also, when you just want to keep your body in top physical condition, the alternatives in physiotherapy are exceptional.
One of the greatest options is exercise therapy. As simple as that might sound, we provide some innovative exercises targeting problem areas of your body. After suffering from pain perhaps for decades in your back or other parts of the body, these exercises give the best chances of you feeling exponentially better. Plus, overall physical health improves with a targeted exercise therapy right for you.
Muscle Stretching and Strengthening
Stretching and strengthening muscles needs specific guidance because patients doing it on their own can easily tear a muscle if they aren’t careful. This is especially true if you have a muscle that’s been giving you pain for a long time.
We have the expertise in specific methods for the proper stretching so you avoid injury. At the same time, we’ll strengthen your muscles with different exercises and therapies. Once healthy muscle tissue returns in your body, you’re going to feel a world of difference.
Perhaps you’ve never heard of this muscle-building therapy, but it’s designed for people who want more intense workouts in their treatments. It involves jumping exercises to help your balance and rebuild strength in weak muscles. While this isn’t designed for those with severe injuries, many people who want to get their bodies back to looking and feeling 20 years younger use this to their advantage.
We’ll help you decide whether you should apply plyometrics in your exercise therapy. It’s quite intense due to quick movements, so you’ll need a full health checkup first. Overall, it’s excellent as part of training for athletic activities.
With resistance training, you help not only your muscles, you also help your bones as well. It creates muscular contractions so everything surrounding your muscles improves, including joints where your pain possibly originates. Along with stretching and using free weights, it’s an excellent plan for getting your body back in shape to help with pain. When you place yourself back in good physical shape, it also creates a domino effect toward helping your overall health improve.
