Why is physiotherapy a reliable solution for physical ailments?

by Trisha Sharma Blogger

Physiotherapy helps to loosen up stiff joints, aching muscles, and physical tension anywhere in the body. It consists of gentle exercises, stretching, and movement so as to ease up blood circulation in the body and facilitate better functioning of joints. The approach of physiotherapy is holistic - it treats the patient from a perspective that favors exercise, movement, and lifestyle changes rather than traditional drug-based therapies. There is an emphasis on exercise, movement, and the betterment of health. The patient is seen as a “whole person” and an integrated approach is sure to make his ailments better and put him on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

In the physiotherapy centers, skilled physiotherapists use a variety of exercises to relieve muscular pain, joint stiffness, and sports-related injuries. The physiotherapist may also advise some lifestyle changes, such as better dietary habits and regular exercise. Usually, physiotherapists, while being skilled and experienced, are also very gentle and considerate towards their patients. They build a lasting relationship with the patients because of their warmth and professionalism.

Physiotherapy is very crucial in post operative care also. It can speed up post-operative recovery as well as reduce any swelling that occurs after the initial injury. Physiotherapy becomes an absolute necessity when a patient has major surgery such as cardiac surgery, cancer prevention surgery, or orthopedic surgery. Surgeons usually recommend a transition care center after the operation because it helps a lot in quick recovery.

They make the patients do exercises that help in muscle movement, ease of joint stiffness, and even helps in serious disorders such as any physical deformities and cerebral palsy.

The physiotherapist is trained to assess the medical history of the patient and develop an individualized treatment plan accordingly. This treatment plan is in no way generic - but on the contrary, for maximum effect, it is tailored to the needs of each specific patient. Physiotherapy, in addition, also addresses neurological and musculoskeletal difficulties in a person, along with ligament tears and other such injuries.

The physiotherapist is trained to spot inaccuracies and inconsistencies in muscle function and uses these pointers as a guide to devising an appropriate treatment plan for the patient, keeping in mind the options of massage and other alternatives (such as acupuncture and manual moving of the joints). 

Physiotherapy also helps, among other things, in curing ailments such as asthma and other breathing problems. It literally helps them breathe easier by opening up the blocked airways. Gentle exercise along with dietary supervision and guidance from the physiotherapist on how to do the exercises - all this will result in a more improved and stress-free lifestyle for the patient. The physiotherapist also demonstrates the exercises that need to be done by the patient, often asking them to maintain a regular routine as far as gentle movement is concerned. The patient may take a while to recover completely. However, it is not impossible without strict adherence to the guidance given by the physiotherapist to the patient.
