Physiotherapy: An Overview of the Field and My Role as Dr. Abdul Qadeer

As a physiotherapist at Al Hanif Physiotherapy & Hijama center, I am frequently asked about what physiotherapy is and what my role is in this field. In this article, we will explore the basics of physiotherapy, my role in the field, and the benefits of hijama.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a branch of healthcare that focuses on restoring, maintaining, and promoting physical function, mobility, and strength. Physiotherapists use a combination of manual therapy, exercise therapy, electrotherapy, and other modalities to help people recover from injuries, surgeries, and illnesses that affect their physical abilities.

Physiotherapists work with people of all ages, from newborns to elderly individuals, and can help with a range of conditions such as back pain, sports injuries, neurological disorders, and respiratory conditions.

My Role in Physiotherapy

As a physiotherapist at Al Hanif Physiotherapy & Hijama center, my role is to assess, diagnose, and treat patients with physical limitations. I work with patients to develop personalized treatment plans that help them improve their physical function, reduce pain, and prevent further injury. I also provide education and support to help patients manage their conditions and maintain their physical abilities.

Domains of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists work in a variety of settings and domains, including:

  1. Musculoskeletal: This domain involves treating injuries and conditions that affect the muscles, bones, and joints, such as sprains, strains, fractures, and arthritis.
  2. Neurological: This domain involves treating conditions that affect the nervous system, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injuries.
  3. Cardiovascular and Respiratory: This domain involves treating conditions that affect the heart and lungs, such as COPD, heart failure, and asthma.
  4. Pediatric: This domain involves treating infants, children, and adolescents with conditions such as cerebral palsy, developmental delays, and sports injuries.

Hijama: Benefits and My Clinic

In addition to physiotherapy, our clinic also offers hijama, a traditional Islamic therapy that involves the removal of stagnant blood from the body. Hijama has been shown to have a range of health benefits, including:

  1. Improving circulation
  2. Reducing pain and inflammation
  3. Boosting the immune system
  4. Promoting relaxation and reducing stress

At Al Hanif Physiotherapy & Hijama center, we offer hijama services in a safe and sterile environment, using disposable cups and following all infection control protocols.
