The physiotherapy department looks after almost all the patients coming to Bombay Hospital Institute of Medical Sciences. Physiotherapy is a valuable adjunct to the Medical Management of Orthopedic, Neurology and Chest patients alike. While physiotherapy offers supportive  treatment to critically ill patients, it is essential for  rehabilitation once the patient is stable.

Almost all Indoor patients are offered post-operative treatment for at least 3-4 days and rehab for non- operated cases upto discharge. All patients are counseled regarding “Dos” and “Don’ts”, home care and continuation of treatment to maintain good health.

In the OPD – Arthritis, trauma and operated orthopedic patients come regularly and form the bulk of OPD practice. Shoulder and ACL rehabilitation programme for operated and conservatively managed patients is given meticulously and regularly. Stroke and Parkinson patients, peripheral nerve injuries, Bell’s Palsy, Saturday night Palsy and operated cases of nerve and tendon injuries come for treatment to the department. Bronchial Asthma, COPD, Bronchiectasis and Bypass patients come to learn breathing exercises and get advised about life style modifications to keep fit and healthy.

For pain management Electro modalities like SWD (Short Wave Dairthmy),US (Ultra Sound) PWB (Paraffin Wax Bath) IFT (Inter Ferential Therapy) Laser and Steam, Hot Packs and Ice Packs are regularly used.

Electrical Stimulators are used for Galvanic and Faradic stimulations and TENS. Also available are Electrical and Manual Traction, intermittent and continuous for Cervical and Lumber problems

Antenatal (Pregnancy) classes from 4th to 8th month are regularly conducted to optimize pregnancy conditions with exercises and educate regarding diet child birth, labor, early parenting etc.
