Physical & Mental Rehabilitation in India
More than 400 million Indians suffer from some form of chronic pain or mental illness. Some of those affected are the elderly, but many sufferers are young adults, housewives, middle-aged corporate workers or even school children. The frenetic lifestyle and long work hours are affecting our wellness too – more incidence of stress, depression, back pain or injuries.
For example, the biggest epidemic facing India is not diabetes or heart disease or cancer – it is chronic pain. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), chronic pain affects more than 30 per cent of the Indian adult population.
Yet very few practitioners or community based facilities exist to provide mental or physical Rehabilitation. Even in major metros, professional rehabilitation facilities are rare.Various factors like changing disease profile, more surgical intervention, an ageing population, an unfit middle aged workforce are also increasing the need for trained Rehabilitation.
Kolkata, like other metros, desperately needs professional Rehabilitation support for those recovering from a major accident or from depression or an operation. It also needs world-class facilities to manage physical pain and mental health conditions among the elderly, professionals, middle-aged men, new mothers and young adults.
India needs trained physical and mental rehabilitation specialists
One in six Indians live with arthritis. Many others suffer from Musculo-skeletal disorders (MSD) that affect joints, muscles, tendon, ligaments or nerves. Even among the relatively young chronic back pain, knee disorders or shoulder and rotator-cuff injuries are quite common.
And then there are 70 million Indians who suffer from psychological conditions – from mild to acute – but they remain undiagnosed and untreated. For every 1 million Indians there are only 3 psychiatrists and even fewer psychologists.
Rehabilitation has often been regarded to be a lowly support service in India. But globally it is regarded as a critical component of the healthcare continuum. Rehabilitation restores functional ability to patients suffering from Neurological, Orthopaedic, Cardiac, Diabetic, Oncological or Pulmonary conditions. Whether you are struggling with pain or disability, rehabilitation can help pace your recovery for an active and productive life.
