In my experience, I have treated almost all types of cases, like Orthopedic, Neurologic, Pediatric, Geriatric, and Cardiothoracic. Even I got a chance to treat many complicated cases, like GB syndrome, and Dravit’s syndrome. At a famous Institute for Cardiovascular Research, I have confidently treated in ICU, Post-surgical cases with coma, and Intubated cases as well. In middle even, I got an additional charge as a Hospital Administrator and also as a College and Hospital Superintendent post for my administration skills.
Many orthopaedicians used to recommend therapy for just 4-5 days, which wouldn’t be carried out because a minimum of 10-15 days is needed. Initially, I used to counsel patients about this and persuade them to continue the treatment.
Compared to when I first started, there were relatively few instruments and approaches available.
For instance, the IFT machine’s settings used to need to be adjusted manually; now, everything is provided with micro-controlled programs that include conditions.
After completing my 2nd PUC, my relative, who was also a District Surgeon at Government, advised me regarding this upcoming course. Also, I saw the importance of Physiotherapy after my grandfather’s hip replacement.
Firstly, I explain everything about the plan of treatment in a professional, clear, and well-behaved way. Nearly 70% of the patients I see now come to me through recommendations from patients who have been visiting me for the past 22 years.
To be frank, I’m not changing anything since, as long as my existing treatment technique is delivering positive outcomes, I don’t see the need to change it.
However, there are some changes.
To Sum Up
With twenty years of extensive experience in the field of physiotherapy, K.P. Manu started his practice when there were only a few physiotherapists in Bangalore. Earlier, patients visited him through recommendations from orthopedics and neurologists. He then started treating home care cases and educating patients and their family members about his profession. Thereafter, patients started approaching him directly without any recommendations.
