Helping patients recover from injuries and illnesses can be a rewarding experience for medical professionals. Physical medicine and rehabilitation and physical therapy are two fields that assist patients with mobility, pain and functional problems. If you're interested in hands-on patient care, you may consider a career in either of these fields, which both involve working with patients to help them regain their function and mobility.

Physical Therapist: Why choose GIMS Health Care Clinic?

The frequency of visits to the physiatrist will always be much less than the physical therapist. A physical therapist will be the one who would work with the patient every day until they have reached their rehabilitation goals. On the other hand, a physiatrist will visit only at the interval of evaluation or during any emergency. Physiatrists and physical therapists are considered to be similar fields of rehabilitation training, however, there are certain differences that separate one from the other. Here we study five differences between the study of physiatry and physical therapy.

What is physical therapy?

Physiotherapy is one of the oldest medical sciences and is based on studied medical bases and is considered one of the most important supporting sections. Physical therapy or physiotherapy is a medical field that evaluates physical therapy to restore the organic functions and motor performance of the body using physical methods such as temperature, cold, electrical properties and therapeutic exercises. In addition, physical therapy is the art of dealing with the body to improve his health and prevent future injuries by understanding and studying the movements of the body, including the assessment and treatment of pain and correct the parts exposed to damage. The section includes specialists with competence and experience in this area, where they evaluate the condition of the patient after conversion from the consultant and the preparation and implementation of the treatment plan.
