Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Apr 20: Lauding philanthropic approach especially in health sector, National Conference Provincial President,  Devender Singh Rana today  said that voluntary efforts would go a long way in improving health status, especially in the areas lacking facilities.
“Time has come when a holistic approach is needed towards aged care services”, Rana said while inaugurating Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centre at Sidhra Bypass near here this afternoon.
The Provincial President appreciated offer of the newly launched facility with regard to free physiotherapy and cataract surgeries at the Centre to patients living Below Poverty Level and wished the management grand success in its philanthropic efforts. “This is imperative for covering such segments of the society, which can’t afford quality treatment”, he added.
He hoped that the area and its adjoining localities will get best available services besides high quality state-of-art treatment from highly experienced physiotherapists.
Rana said private sector with missionary spirit could hugely help in achieving the objective of health for all, especially in an era when people are becoming more health conscious. He said this can be achieved only when the health services are available and affordable for the lower strata of society, which need more care due to various factors.
MLA Nagrota particularly appreciated the offer of free cataract surgeries, saying this will prove bone for old and aged. He complimented Kuldeep Singh Jamwal for sponsoring this effort and hoped such a missionary spirit will inspire others for arranging free medical camps in various other disciplines in the area. He said access of people to quality and affordable health care services is a welcome step.
Rana emphasized the need for holistic physiotherapy centres to treat growing complaints about stiffness in joints and muscles, back and neck pain, mobility and walking and related problems especially in advanced age.
The Advanced Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centre will be manned under the expert guidance of Dr Isha Kour, Dr Richa Sharma and Dr Gaurav Sharma.
