The SparshaGuna (healing touch) Physiocare and Wellness Centre started functioning soon after the second wave of the pandemic. We have launched our Physiotherapy services that support beneficiaries across disabilities and those needing therapy and post-operative care both at home and in the centre. Our teams have also been supporting patients who are aged and bedridden with home visits.

We have introduced low-level laser therapy for pain and wound healing in our centre.

Regular physiotherapy intervention for burns, ulcers and musculoskeletal pain is carried out in the centre on regular basis. We have treated regular free physiotherapy for 21 patients in the clinic.

Our physiotherapist visited the Chikkanayakana HalliLeprosy colony and provided physiotherapy for the prevention of deformity and ulcers.

AIFO’s Sparshaguna physiotherapy center provides free physiotherapy services to people with disabilities. Physiotherapy services started in November 2021. During Dec 2021 and Jan 2022, Physiotherapy center activities were put on hold due to the third wave of omicron/covid 19 in India. We resumed the regular physiotherapy services from Feb 2022.

 

During this period, AIFO’s Sparshaguna effectively treated eight patients and was given functional improvement.

  • One burns victim patient with very sensitive skin and limited joint mobility has improved drastically.
  • Another gentleman who underwent a renal transplant attended regular physiotherapy for neuropathy and his activity level increased.  
  • One woman nonhealing ulcer on her leg improved very well with physiotherapy, LASER, and nursing care.
  • Two senior citizens with arthritis issues recently among whom one was advised for surgery for which they were not ready. We were able to do a good job which has reduced his pain to a larger extent.
  • Three more people affected by leprosy also receive physiotherapy and wound care services in a residential home for their non-healing ulcers.  

 AIFO Wishes to reach more people with disabilities and people affected by leprosy. Without your contribution, we can’t achieve our mission.

 Thank you for your donation please spread our good work with friends and families.
