Physical Therapy Center
The Physiotherapy Centre, along with the clinic (OPD) faithfully serves persons with physical disabilities. Indeed, this center was the foundation of PSRD in 1957. Its main objective is to provide physical treatment to the disabled to ensure optimal functional mobility and thus enable them to be active members of society.
The facility is well equipped with the latest equipment to treat a variety of muscular-skeletal conditions from the minor yet debilitating conditions like lower back pain, sciatica, muscular sprains, and strains to the most serious like post-traumatic fractures, paralysis, nerve lesions, muscular dystrophy, muscular contractures, cerebral palsy, etc. The well-qualified staff ensures that everyone, from children to adults, gets the best possible therapy relevant to their condition.
The majorities of the patients either receive free treatment or pay a nominal fee. The staff encourages patients to continue therapy at home by imparting knowledge regarding exercise skills to the patients and their attendants. Seminars and workshops are also held regularly to improve expertise of staff, share good practice with other medical professionals and promote awareness of musculoskeletal conditions and their management.

Occupational Therapists work on the upper extremities of trauma patients, CVA and other neurological, orthopedic and psychological dysfunctions.
