Physiotherapy & OT

Physiotherapy department provides treatment for people suffering from physical problems arising from injury, disease, illness and ageing.

At GRC, the Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise into the GRC gym’s rooms, manual therapy, by providing education and counseling services to help patients recover after a serious injury, illness or a surgery. GRC Physiotherapy department maintains health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

Here at GRC, the department of Physiotherapy is well equipped with modern rehabilitation equipment, including treadmill, cycle, physioball, rolls, wall bars, parallel bars, wedges, stationed bicycle, and cross- trainer, standing frame, multistation gym, rehabilitation mat, staircase and ramp. This equipment helps the GRC patients to reduce pain, restore muscle balance, correct posture and address activity and functional limitations.

The highly skilled Physiotherapy team at GRC believes in providing holistic treatment for all cases to restore the patients’ normal or near normal activities of daily living and reduce suffering.

Occupational Therapy at GRC treats injured, ill, or disabled patients through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. This unit helps these patients develop, recover, improve, as well as maintaining the skills needed for daily living and working.

At GRC, our occupational therapists work with patients to bring the pieces of life together again. Occupational therapists rehabilitate patients in a holistic perspective taking into consideration what matters the most to patients. OT works to rehabilitate both the mind and body through meaningful, functional tasks and develop customized plans to achieve your goals and take your life back.

At the GRC, occupational therapy breaks down daily tasks – tasks we all take for granted such as: Eating a meal, Getting dressed, Using the bathroom and Brushing teeth and hair. 

Occupational Therapy service at GRC can be offered to all ages – from newborns through the elderly population. It can be implemented in just about any phase of a patient’s treatment – from their bed to inpatient rehabilitation facilities to the comfort of their home.

Occupational therapy services typically include:

·         An individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals, 

·         Provide intervention according to identified problems to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and

·         Outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.

Occupational therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the contextual factors including client’s home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers. Occupational therapy practitioners work around the holistic approach in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team.

Occupational therapist makes and teaches the caregivers to make adapted seats and standing frame low cost materials.
