10 Hostpitals To Receive Physiotherapy Equipment

10 Hostpitals To Receive Physiotherapy Equipment

Approximately twenty-six thousand (26,000) persons annually access physiotherapy services in the public health sector. The need for physiotherapy usually arises as a consequence of diseases and injury. Clients are first evaluated and several methods are employed to address impairments, limitations to function and disabilities. Common conditions treated include: orthopaedic conditions such as fractures and dislocations, low back pain; neurological conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury and Parkinson?s disease; cardiopulmonary and circulatory conditions such as peripheral vascular disease; arthritic conditions; corrective tissue conditions such as burns and wounds; sports injuries and workplace injuries.

The NHF seeks to reduce the burden on healthcare in Jamaica and has an ongoing programme to support improvements in health services. Several hospitals have already benefited from grants for various projects.
