Weight management and Physiotherapy


Physiotherapists have a very important role to play in the prevention and management of weight. Obesity leads to restrictions in movement, affecting engagement in physical activity. Exercise and movement is the primary scope of physiotherapy practice.

Physiotherapists have advanced knowledge in:Anatomical, Physiological, and Psychosocial mechanisms of health and disease. Physiotherapists are therefore ideally suited to treat the physical and psychologicalcomplexities of obesity.

While the importance of being physically active is well recognized, in reality, patients often experience difficulties in doing so. An assessment and treatment plan from a physiotherapist will help overcome the barriers to exercise. It is important to facilitate patients to increase physical activity at the right level, which can be achieved by referral to a physiotherapist.

At Sai Health Care Wellness Centre our treatment plan for an obesepatient is comprised of -

1. Personalized lifestyle advice

2. Exercise for muscle strength, flexibility, and endurance.
