Physiotherapy ServicesRegardless of the fact that we provide ARVs, a certain segment of our patients require healing by physical means with the aim of promoting, maintaining and restoring body function. This is usually done through Health education and sensitization, prescribed remedial exercises, developing skills of coordination, balance, strength, mobility, and endurance, facilitation of soft tissue healing and pain relief. Physiotherapy services provided at MUg include; subjective and objective assessment, planning for the clients, physical interventions at the MUg, home settings, in the residential ward on site and in the MUg supported districts.
We also support our clients to construct mobility supports and training of carers in simple rehabilitation skills at home (improvise), support home visits and follow up to monitor the progress of the individuals and training of the VHT in rehabilitation skills as these are within the communities of our clients.
