Leading Physical Medicine Specialists In Kolkata

Overview

Healthy living has been on the rise and a large number of people today lead an active lifestyle. Nowadays neither people want to restrict their daily activities, be it domestic or professional, nor do they want to limit their participation in social and recreational activities. In today’s world, almost every individual wants to enjoy life with the highest possible functional freedom whether s/he is recovering from an acute trauma or is suffering from a chronic ailment. Giving due importance and respect to this fundamental human desire and behaviour, the very concept of treatment of a disease or the management of a health condition doesn’t stop at early detection and treatment, but also extends to disability limitation and proper medical rehabilitation. At the individual as well as a societal level, it is being increasingly perceived that re-ablement through proper medical rehabilitation is of utmost importance for leading a fruitful life. With the ever increasing load of acute and chronic musculoskeletal diseases like soft tissue injuries, sports injuries, arthritis & pain and ailments involving other systems like stroke, spinal cord injury, movement disorders etc., medically directed and medically supervised rehabilitation has become immensely important.
