Understanding the 4 Phases Of Physical Therapy With Physiorevive

Physiotherapy is a step forward towards complete recovery from any injury, pain, swelling, etc.
At Physiorevive, we define complete recovery as the ability to do what one wants to do without
any pain or fear of pain. Although there are several phases in physical therapy and they totally
depend on the nature of the injury, but, typically every patient undergoes four phases. Read
further to know more.

Phases Of Physical Therapy

There are four phases of any physical therapy, let us know what they are and understand what
happens in them.

1. Acute Phase

This phase is the beginning of swelling rehabilitation and reduction in pain. This phase
usually begins one or two weeks post-operatively. Apart from reduction in pain, this is
the correct time to increase the range of movement of the suffering body part. For this, a
Physiorevive therapist will perform manual therapy, begin a gentle rhythmic exercise for
stabilization, passive movements, etc.


2 . Intermediate Phase

In this phase, some new active activities are introduced to increase the mobility of the
suffering or the injured body part. These activities will also help in healing the soft
tissues, and along with that restoration of full passive range of movement begins.
The therapists will continue with manual therapy in order to reduce pain, swelling and


3. Strengthening Phase

In this phase, the patient will feel a full passive and active range of movement. And with
that, the therapist will move on to regain strength and endurance. For that, the therapist
will introduce the patient to some new joint exercises such as multi-joint endurance
exercises, eccentric contractions, proprioception and neuromuscular exercise, multiplanar endurance exercises, etc.
All the exercises are selected on the basis of the nature of the injury, the magnitude of
the injury, and the end goal of the patient.


4. Return To Sports

We call the fourth phase the return to sports phase because, in this, the patient regains
all the muscular strength in the injured sport or joint to the level where they can
participate in sports events. In simple terms, they can go back to their normal life as if
they were never injured. For that, the therapists will introduce plyometric activities to the
patient and some sports-centric loads will be applied to the injured joints. These will
ensure dynamic stability, regaining advanced strength in muscles, power, proprioception
and endurance.
