Myths about Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is not a new profession in the world. In Pakistan, due to its exponential awareness, physiotherapy is considered as one of the integral components of medical sciences.But still, there are a lot of myths among the community.

    1. Are steroidal injections best for pain relief? Now it is said that they can cause more
      injury in the structures called collagen which make up the muscles and tendons. According to latest research, Physiotherapy may produce better effects and less injury than steroidal injections and can be the best conservative treatment for both shoulder and knee pain.
    2. Is MRI best to diagnose Low back pain or a distraction?                                                                                                                      Current research says that clinical picture is more important in case of non-traumatic low back pain than MRI as MRI may introduce distractions among doctors and patients. Low back pain has hundreds of causes so an experienced therapist can identify the specific causes more effectively than MRI. However, if there is any trauma/ injury than MRI will be the gold standard in that case.
    3. Physiotherapist are massage therapist?                                                                                                                                                              DPT is a complete 5 years degree program going on in Pakistan but Massage therapy is a Diploma or BS program not taking place in Pakistan yet. Massage therapy can be used in physiotherapy as one of the treatment tools for best outcomes of the patients.
    4. Is Physiotherapy beneficial or just wastage of money? Physiotherapy is always beneficial in patients with painful conditions and body weakness. It is said that if physiotherapy is not producing results in 3 days so better to change the physiotherapist in Lahore Pakistan or the treatment approach. Every session has the value and is reflective for the patient.
    5. Does anyone can do Physiotherapy? Physiotherapy is the most difficult profession in
      reality and may not be done easily by a common man if the condition is severe and chronic. So better opinion is to consult an expert physiotherapist in Lahore rather than treating the structure at your own. Most importantly, usually the patients or their attendants delay the treatment of the patients and don’t visit an expert physiotherapist.This may lead to more and more complications in the body and late recovery.
    6. Should we wait to visit Physiotherapist? Patient with pain or functional disability need
      right referral at the right time. Unfortunately, due to the weak referral system in our country or lack of knowledge for right referral, the patient’s recovery gets delayed  leading to poor outcomes and functional issues.
    7. Is stair climbing or sitting on the ground or walking is harmful for knee and back pain? It
      is a wrong dilemma if anyone have knee or back pain than he/she should not walk,climb stairs or sit on the ground. Our muscles need force of 3 times body weight while climbing stairs and force of 7 times body when stand from sitting position. This may lead to weakness in the specific muscle group after a month or so. According to the  latest guidelines, one should return to heavy activities as soon as the condition subside.
    8. It’s not true that there is no need of Labs findings and radiological films to show to
      Physiotherapist. Once you have make up your mind to have a consultation with physiotherapist, you must come for checkup with all the details related to your condition.
    9. Are medicines only reduced the pain? Physiotherapy treat the structure in a way that it
      may reduce inflammation, weakness, stiffness and tightness of the structures. It does not replace medicines but have an important role in reducing the use of medication.
    10. Physiotherapy produce permanent solution rather than the temporary one.
    11. Physiotherapy is the long term treatment approach rather than shorter term that’s all depend upon the expertise of the professional. Patients may not have reversed just after physiotherapy treatment.
