THE REVIEW OF PHYSIOTHERAPY ROLE IN CHILDREN WITH OBESITY
Ravinder Sumal1 , Inderpreet Kaur
In spite of global efforts to combat childhood obesity, the problem is still poorly understood
and tough to treat. Because of their expertise in mobility and physical exercise,
physiotherapists are well-suited to treat obese youngsters. However, the lack of physiotherapyspecific rules leaves their role ambiguous. Physiotherapists may use the findings of this scoping
study to help them implement evidence-based practises in the treatment of paediatric obesity.
Because of the continuous improvements in many obesity-related outcomes, physiotherapists
should explore multicomponent methods and increasing physical activity in the treatment of
obese children. Physiotherapists' competence in physical activity prescription for the therapy
of paediatric obesity is well matched to such techniques. The effectiveness of motor skill
treatments should be examined in future studies, as should the role of environmental alteration
and parental participation in ensuring the success of such interventions.
