What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy, also referred to as physical therapy, is an allied health profession that makes use of bio – mechanics or kinesiology, manual therapy, exercise therapy and electrotherapy, to help patients restore, maintain and increase their physical mobility, strength and function.
Physiotherapists are better able to help patients regain mobility, as they have a better understanding of how the body works and are trained in clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat disabilities. Physiotherapists can help patients recover from injuries and disabilities ranging from back pain, neck pain, knees pain to ligament issues.

Patient Stories – How Sumant Found Help In Portae To Provide Physiotherapy For Her Mother?
I availed Portea Physiotherapy service for my mother and would like to inform you about your incredible and extraordinary team member, and my mother’s physiotherapist – Dr. Marjiya Akter Sonia.
Marjiya has been giving physiotherapy sessions to my mother – Mrs Suresh Ahuja for about a month now.
Let me start by mentioning here, that I judge people much more, by the strength of their character, and how good a person is as a human being, rather than just their professional expertise, and knowledge in their area of excellence.
In the case of Marjiya, She has not just proven herself to be a great physiotherapist to my mother, but also has talent and expertise by her side.
More importantly, she is a warm-hearted and gentle person with character traits, which are hard to find these days – kindness, grace, empathy and compassion.
Marjiya’s physiotherapy sessions have helped my mother immensely over the past 3-4 weeks. Thanks to her consistent support, my mother, who has a L3 and D9 compression fracture of the spine, has started walking to the bathroom with the help of a walker, she also helps my mother – walk around to the living room of my house, with the help of a walker. She is helping her, persistently with her physiotherapy.
Moreover, Marjiya has taught my mother certain physiotherapy exercises to do on her own everyday, which she has been doing regularly – and these exercises have been quite helpful, in regaining her leg muscle strength and reducing her pain while walking, and sitting on bed. She is now able to sit on the bed without any pain, over a much longer period of time, than she previously used to, before these sessions started.
I perceive Dr. Marjiya – as one the best physiotherapists. Her phenomenal competence and skills, combined with her empathy and devotion, to the well-being of the patient, make her an exceptional person.
People like Marjiya should be acknowledged, appreciated, rewarded and promoted in every organisation.

Why Do Physiotherapy Exercises?
Physiotherapy exercises have been proven to be a beneficial way to help treat and prevent injuries and pain related to varied diseases.
Physiotherapists are trained medical professionals who utilise these exercises to strengthen muscles and enhance function. They assess an individual’s problems and then recommend the best set of physiotherapy exercises for rapid relief. These exercises range from single to high-level postures which help repair the body and restore full bodily function.
Just like in the case of medication, you only benefit if you take the medicines as prescribed by a doctor; similarly you can expect any benefit from physiotherapy if you diligently follow up with the recommended exercises.
Physiotherapy also helps to restore a balanced emotional mental state which is crucial for holistic treatment.
