The physiotherapy experts at SBJH utilize specially designed exercise regimens, and scientific equipment to help patients regain joint mobility, enhance their physical capabilities and try to lead normal lives. Salient features of the SBJH physiotherapy department are:
A Barefoot Training Specialist (BTS) is a qualified health & fitness professional who has a thorough appreciation for the interconnection between the foot & ankle and the lower extremity alignment.
The SBJH Barefoot Training Specialist recognizes common foot imbalances and how each effects alignment, function and performance differently. In the SBJH training program, the BTS, with a thorough understanding of the concept of "from the ground up" programming, uses evidence-based barefoot training to restore function, build strength and improve overall movement.
Insoles are devices placed inside the shoes/footwear with the purpose of restoring our natural foot function.Insoles correct over-pronation and realign the foot and ankle bones to their neutral position, restoring natural foot function. This gives relief from many common complaints such as heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain that are caused by poor foot biomechanics.Buying a pair of Insoles can be a worthwhile investment for your health, since they can prevent many serious lower body problems.
Regular insoles are purely designed to provide a cushioning effect and shock absorption.WhereasSBJH Insoles realign the feet and ankles, and restore deficient foot function. They enable a more even weight distribution, taking pressure off sore spots (e.g. the heels, the ball of the foot, corns in between toes, and bunions) and also provide shock absorption.
At SBJH, machines imported from France are used for diagnosis and testing, and customised insoles are created for a patient using the 'Proform Module'. These insoles are tailored to suit the needs of different patients. Fragile feet insoles for diabetic patients have a softer top layer, sensitive feet insole for patients suffering from neuropathy, etc.
Theisokinetic machine measures, evaluates and increases the strength of muscles and ranges of motions of major joints. It aims to restore optimal function after injury or surgery. SBJH introduced this machine to Tamil Nadu.
At SBJH, the final stage of rehabilitation aims to return an individual to normal/sports activities via resistance exercises that are usually focused at regaining muscle strength.
