Rehabilitation Treatment to Make Life More
Comfortable
Rehabilitation treatment includes protocols, physical
therapy and advanced techniques in different stages of
                           treatment. Equipment commonly
                           used in the early stages of the
                           treatment     schedule      includes
                           shoulder wheel, theratubing,
                           walker bars, and rocker and
                           wobble boards. These help to
                           restore impaired tissues, increase
                           flexibility       and         reduce
                           inflammation. However, during
                           the later stages of treatment,
                           advanced equipment such as
elliptical trainer, treadmill, stair stepper, resistive weight
machines and cycles are used to enhance various physical
functionalities.
Rehabilitation programs include:
  •   A comprehensive diagnosis and evaluation that is
      carried out to plan a personalized treatment program.
      Then the patients are referred to different
      rehabilitation sections for further specialized
      treatment.
