Scientific research has shown that hydrotherapy can improve general fitness and strength in people with various types of arthritis. The exercises are usually customized to your individual needs, so you can start to gradually build up your flexibility and strength.
The extra support that you get from water may make you feel that you can do more exercises than usual. But you have to be careful and follow physiotherapist’s instructions properly. You may also feel tired after the therapy because of exercise, but it is quite normal. In general, hydrotherapy is considered as one of the safest treatments for arthritis and back pain.
Gait analysis is the methodical study of human locomotion, using the eye and the brain of observers, amplified by instrumentation for measuring body movements, body mechanics, and the activity of muscles. Gait analysis is used to evaluate and help individuals with issues affecting their ability to walk or run. It is commonly used in sports field to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture or movement-related problems in people with injuries.
Chronic pain is different from normal pain. In case of chronic pain, the body continues to send signals to the brain even after an injury heals. It can last for many weeks or months. Chronic pain can affect your movement, flexibility and strength and disturb your daily tasks and activities.
The pain that lasts for 12 weeks or more is called chronic pain. The pain can be sharp, dull, burning or throbbing. It may be steady or intermittent, come and go without any reason. It can happen in any part of the body.
Blood is made up of plasma (liquid) and cells- red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets play an important role in blood clotting. So when you get hurt, it is platelet which causes clotting of blood and stops the bleeding. Platelets also contain proteins called growth factors which are important for the healing process.
PRP is the plasma with a higher concentration of platelets than what is normally found in the blood.
Breastfeeding is the best and most valuable gift a mother can give to her newborn baby. It is an unparallel way of giving ideal food for the healthy growth and development of babies. It is also an important part of the whole reproductive process, which has vital consequences on the health of mothers. Many scientific studies have proved that exclusive breastfeeding for first 6 months is the finest way of feeding infants. After 6 months, infants should be given complementary foods along with breastfeeding up to 2 years of age or beyond.
Chronic/ Overuse injuries are generally caused by repetitive use of muscles and joints. The wrong technique or structural irregularities or untreated injuries can also contribute to overuse injuries.
