physiotherapy also helps in rehabilitation of patients with debilitating conditions.. sometimes it is the last resort to treat a deformed bone or an immobile body part. . physiotherapy helped my mother recover to a great extent with her immobile left hand after she suffered from stroke. thank u so much Nishu Singh for sharing this useful blog which would definitely help Proparents .
