Importance of Diagnosis Phase in Physical Medicine

Diagnosis is the identification of the nature and cause of a certain phenomenon, an experience to determine "cause and effect."

The aim of Physical Therapy Diagnosis (PTD) or Functional Diagnosis (FD) is to diagnose movement system impairments to guide intervention for health optimization such that the disability can be minimized. The objective is clearly focused in the expertise of identifying clusters of movement system dysfunction and classifying them rather than diseases.

Treatment effectiveness and prognosis are further mapped for a particular classification of movement system impairment using function as an outcome. This not only increases effectiveness of practice but also contributes to health care and research.

Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

The main aim of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine is to diagnose the specific reason for your child’s problem and design a treatment plan, especially for your child to restore functions such as movement and speech. Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine uses an interdisciplinary approach to prevent, diagnose, treat, and manage congenital and childhood-onset physical impairments.

I have almost 30 years of experience in the identification of functional capabilities and selection of the best rehabilitation intervention strategies, understanding the effects of conditions such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida or muscular dystrophy on your child's body.
