REHABILITATION AND PHYSIOTHERAPY

Rehabilitation is a process of restoring function through relearning lost abilities or finding new ways of performing everyday activities to maximise one’s lifestyle.

Fortis Hospital, Bannerghatta Road, has a team of 20 physiotherapists who deal with the disabilities arising from medical and age-related illness, sports injury, joint replacement surgeries, stroke, neurological illness, spinal cord and brain injury. The centre has a comprehensively equipped fitness center available for exercise, rehabilitation and health promotion clients. The department was the first to start the Lamaze programme in Bangalore. The center has domiciliary physiotherapy care as well.
