Orthopaedic physiotherapy is a main branch of physiotherapy that focuses on to the correction of functional deficiencies or deformities of the skeletal system, especially the spine and limbs, and other associated structures, like ligaments and muscles that are attached with it.
This is where we present the word “musculoskeletal” to our discussion.

Therefore, if you have a musculoskeletal problem, you can consult an orthopaedic physiotherapist in the physiotherapy service in South Kolkata.
The interrelation between musculoskeletal physiotherapy and orthopaedics

There are often secondary limitations that affect the person’s ability to move more to burn the calories needed for weight reduction. This is commonly seen with orthopaedic problems that involve the knee or hip, which are the load joints in the body. If it hurts to put weight on the knee or hip, it would be increasingly difficult to move, which continues the cycle of a sedentary lifestyle and probably more weight gain. This is where an orthopaedic physiotherapist can intervene and help reduce pain, inflammation and joint restrictions, which facilitates movement and weight loss through exercise.
