Advanced Physiotherapy is a level of clinical practice where the practitioners make complex decisions and manage risks in incalculable conditions using advanced clinical reasoning. The physiotherapist interacts with the patient, gathering information, testing hypotheses, and determining the best treatment based on the collected information.
Advanced physiotherapists are regulated, practitioners. They hold their own professional liability; most of them can prescribe independently, plan complex case management, carry out injection therapy, and order investigations.
A type of advanced physiotherapy, aqua therapy, is any exercise performed in water to assist in rehabilitation and recovery from serious injury or hard training. This treatment is popular among patients with neurological and musculoskeletal conditions; when patients are immersed in water, their comfort increases as the blood supply to sore muscles increases. This promotes relaxation for the patient.
Another type of physiotherapy is hand rehabilitation. It is restoring the upper limb (hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulders) to normal functioning. The procedure is a combination of occupational therapy and physiotherapy theories and practices and the goal is to return the individual to their pre-injury roles and occupations.
Certified hand therapists are experts in treating patients suffering from conditions affecting the hands and wrists and the upper extremities. They provide comprehensive care, and they can assess and treat problems. They can also offer preventive care, create personalised treatment programs, and provide rehabilitation after surgery.
Hand rehabilitation benefits patients by reducing the need for reparative/corrective surgery. Patients are also provided education and training to adapt to their daily tasks. Their range of motion, function, strength, and dexterity gets increased, and joint pains are better managed and reduced.
When it comes to muscle pains and inflammations, blood disorders, rheumatic diseases, skin problems such as eczema and acne, allergies, asthma, varicose veins, and some more, cupping therapy is used by physiotherapists. This is a form of alternative medicine from ancient times and is performed by putting special cups on the skin to create suction. The cups may be made of silicone, bamboo, earthenware, or glass. This type of physiotherapy helps patients with pain, blood flow, inflammation, well-being, and relaxation and is also considered a type of deep tissue massage.
During the cupping therapy, the practitioner will put a flammable substance such as paper, alcohol, or herbs in a cup and let it burn. As the fire goes out, the cups are placed upside down on the skin for about 3 minutes. Then a vacuum is created, and the skin rises and reddens due to expanding the blood vessels.
