    The top 10 questions about Physiotherapy in Dubai

    What is Physiotherapy?

    Physiotherapy, also known as Physical Therapy, is one of the allied health professions. It is the treatment to restore, maintain and maximize the patient’s strength, body function, mobility and well-being. Physiotherapy also includes research, education, consultation and health administration.

    Why do I need Physiotherapy in Dubai?

    Physiotherapy is beneficial for a wide variety of conditions – it will help you treat, maintain or prevent further injuries or ailments. Physiotherapists work in different fields and can treat various conditions falling into categories such as musculoskeletal, orthopedic, pediatric, rehabilitation, neurological, cardiopulmonary and public health sectors.

    When do I need Physiotherapy?

    If your pain is mechanical (the pain is made worse by particular movements or activities), your pain is not getting better or is getting worse, your pain is preventing you from participating in certain activities or sports or it is severe and affecting your movement. Physiotherapy is also good with prevention of pain with rehabilitative exercises and education to the patient.

    Who should I consult first when I have a pain?

    Physiotherapists are first line practitioners – this means that you can consult a physiotherapist before seeing a doctor. If the pain seems to be muscular or joint related a physiotherapist will be able to assess your condition. If possible the physiotherapist will be able to treat you, but if required they will refer you on to the best health professional for the condition.

    How long does a Physiotherapy session last?

    Our physiotherapy sessions are 45 minutes long but may vary depending on the nature of your condition. Your initial consultation will include a complete assessment before commencing with treatment.

    Where should I go to do a Physio session?

    Our Physiotherapy clinic is well equipped with latest industry standard equipment. We treat every person as a unique case, because it is all about you and your particular needs. The clinic is strategically located at Sheikh Zayed road and with free parking for an hour. Check out the walk through of our Physiotherapy clinic below.

    Why is Physio important?

    Physiotherapy is hugely beneficial for the treatment of pain and injuries resulting in a return to ‘normal’ function and activities of daily living. It helps you to restore your body and movement to an optimal state. As it is told, “A sound mind is in a sound body” – a well maintained and cared for body free of pain and disorder results in a happy life mentally and physically.

    Will I have any side effects or other problems after a physiotherapy session?

    There may be some temporary side effects post treatment during the recovery stage. These may include tenderness, muscle fatigue, muscle soreness, dizziness or increased discomfort/pain. You can openly speak up to our therapists if you are worried about any of the above problems.

    Is sports massage the same as physiotherapy?

    No. Sports massage is a service provided by our physiotherapists in order to promote healing and recovery in athletes or exercising individuals. Massage is a treatment technique that is incorporated into physiotherapy sessions in conjunction with other techniques such as joint mobilizations, manipulation and exercise prescription.

    How much time will it take to see the results?

    Recovery depends on a number of factors and differs between different conditions. Your physiotherapist will advise you following your first consultation on what is generally expected for your condition.
