Keshia Petersen Physiotherapy
5.0

From 16 verified reviews

Chad Thomas, 07 September 2020

Keshia is delightfully friendly and welcoming. Her deep tissue massage was fantastic as I could immediately feel a relief within my upper neck after the first session. I felt that her personal service and follow up skills were exceptional too as this is a rare commodity these days. She also advised some great self-therapy tips I could try while at home. She is also very meticulous about hygiene which is great considering the current state of events. Definitely recommend her to anyone seeking proper professional advise and care.

Through a mild and fairly warm winter which starts in June or July, I have noticed a difference in both my temperament and physical abilities. This was in 2019. It is now 2020 and indeed a new person has been given birth to within me. Journey with Dr. Ram treatments has been a phenomenal experience. Helen Westlake.

Juliettash Stadler, 05 May 2020

My Son was admitted with a very rare autoimmune illness in April this year. The care he was given was superb Prof Dheda, Prof Louw and their team of specialists covered every possibility , diagnosed efficiently and treated effectively. There was time taken to explain everything. The Hospital Matron made allowances for me to spend as much as possible time with my son and also allowed for frequent visits from close family. Mr Daniel Mathew the Hospital General manager is very approachable and interested . The staff was friendly and helpful. Basically every one from reception through admin to ICU was friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend this hospital

    What you need to know about Physical Therapy in South Africa

    Physical therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, is a non-invasive type of treatment that helps individuals restore, maintain, and develop body movement and physical function. It is usually suggested to people who have had an illness, injury, or disability that makes it hard for them to do daily tasks. The main goal of physical therapy is to ease pain and help patients function, move, and live better. Medical professionals who provide physical therapy are called physical therapists, or physiotherapists. They are trained and licensed to diagnose physical abnormalities, maintain physical function, restore physical function and mobility, and promote proper function and physical activity.

    Physical therapists are qualified to treat a wide range of medical conditions, depending on their specialty. Some of the most common physical therapy specialties are:

    • Orthopedic physical therapy treats musculoskeletal injuries. They typically treat fractures, tendonitis, sprains, and bursitis.
    • Geriatric physical therapy helps older people with conditions that affect their physical function and mobility, such as hip and joint replacement, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and arthritis.
    • Neurological physical therapy help people with neurological disorder or disease, such as brain injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, and multiple sclerosis.
    • Cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation help those affected by certain cardiopulmonary conditions and surgical procedures. 
    • Pediatric physical therapy assists in the diagnosis, treat and manage conditions affecting infants, children, and adolescents, such as developmental delays, spina bifida, and torticollis. 

    Physical therapy can be different for everyone, depending on the patient’s illness or injury and personal goal. Physical therapy treatment may involve:

    • Targeted exercises and stretches guided by the physical therapist
    • Ultrasound to promote blood flow and healing.
    • Massage, heat or cold therapy, or warm water therapy to relieve muscle pain or spasms.
    • Phonophoresis to decrease inflammation.
    • Electrical stimulation to increase functional capabilities and reduce pain.
    • Light therapy to treat certain medical conditions.

    How Long Should I Stay in South Africa?

    Most of the time, you may be allowed to leave South Africa right after your physical therapy session. However, since a physical therapy program usually requires more than one session, you should stay until all of your sessions are finished. Most people will need six to twelve sessions, between six and eight weeks. 

    What's the Expected Recovery Time?

    It is generally recommended that you rest after a physical therapy session. Physical therapy helps you recover from an illness or an injury and there is usually no extra recovery time after you finish your physical therapy program.

    What Aftercare is Required?

    After a physical therapy session, you must drink plenty of water and take note of unusual pain. If your physical therapist gives you an exercise program to do at home, make sure to do it as directed. Your physical therapist will likely give you instructions to make recovery time quicker and avoid any further damage. 

    What's the Success Rate?

    Like many other medical treatments, physical therapy continues to advance. With the broad knowledge and experience of physical therapists, they can use evidence-based approaches to help you improve mobility, balance, and strength, as well as reduce scar tissue formation, relieve pain and swelling, improve flexibility, and reduce the development of any secondary issue. Physical therapy is safe, but there are some risks you will need to be aware of. It can cause discomfort, pain, and in some very rare cases, do more harm than good. 

    Are there Alternatives?

    Alternatives to physical therapy depend on your specific condition. For some diseases and injury, you may have no other choice than seeing a physical therapist. In many cases, you may be able to see massage therapists, acupuncturists, or chiropractors to relieve pain.

    Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 29/12/2020.
