Month-long awareness drive comes as part of World Physical Therapy Day
In an effort to create awareness on ways to correct spinal disorders, a leading hospital has launched free screening for residents until the end of September.
To mark the World Physical Therapy Day – which falls on Sept.8 every year – the Rehabilitation Centre at the RAK Hospital is offering free intensive screening on back strength and gait analysis.
Dr Jean Marc Gauer, CEO and Head of Surgery at RAK Hospital, said that physiotherapy can serve as an effective alternative to surgical procedures.
According to Dr Gauer, young children, adults and the elderly can overcome various physical impairments and deformities through physical therapy. It is also a particularly useful tool to correct any gait abnormality, such as being flat footed and balance disorders, as well as help rectify injuries caused by poor posture and a sedentary lifestyle.
