7 BENEFITS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY
WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy is an integrative treatment to restore, maintain and maximise the patient’s mobility, physical strength, and well-being. It is a way of managing pain without the help of surgery or medicines through massages and exercises. Physiotherapists are trained professionals who help us in the process of restoration and well-being.
WHO NEEDS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physical exercise is the essence of Physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is used to treat pain that has resulted because of accidents, surgeries, sports injuries, chronic diseases, old age mobility issues etc.
- Sports Injuries
Athletes tend to push their bodies beyond their limits which might cause them pains, fractures, ligament tears, sprains, etc. Physiotherapy is very essential to bring some relief from this pain and help them get back in shape.
- Post Surgery
The primary reason why physiotherapy is prescribed after surgery is to bring back the mobility of the patient. The second reason is to reduce the pain a patient undergoes after surgery.
Injuries after accidents are prevalent, and the type of injury depends on the trauma. Most of them need physiotherapy to get them back on their feet.
- Old Age
Most often, the advent of old age causes weakened joints and pains. Older adults are more prone to minor mishaps which need physical therapy to recover.
- Chronic Diseases
People suffering from chronic diseases like cancer, spine injury, arthritis, etc., respond well to physiotherapy.
BENEFITS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY
- Reduces chronic pain
A large number of people suffering from chronic pain end up taking addictive opioid medicines. These medicines only mask the pain sensations but do not treat them. The best alternative for long-term pain is physical therapy or physiotherapy.
- Alternative for surgery
Research shows that people who avoid surgery and begin physiotherapy instead are 50% less likely to have surgery. For example, a review of knee arthritis and meniscus injuries noted that 60 to 70% of knee surgeries were avoided by patients undergoing physiotherapy first.
- Affordable solution
Physiotherapy is a less expensive alternative to surgery and is also a preventive measure. It will not only help to restore mobility and balance but can also avoid recurrence. In short, the overall health is improved with much less investment.
- Improves mobility
Physiotherapy will improve mobility and independence with everyday tasks by improving muscle strength, joint flexibility, balance, and coordination.
- Improves Balance and Prevent Falls
Older adults and people suffering from Vertigo usually lose their balance and end up falling, which may cause injuries. In such cases, balance training is undertaken by physiotherapists to prevent falls, improve posture and standing ratio.
- Helps in managing Diabetes and Vascular conditions
Patients with diabetes may have problems with sensations in their feet and legs. A physical therapist will educate these patients on proper foot care to help avoid further complications later on. Exercise can also help control blood sugar levels.
- Aids in Recovery from Sports-related Injuries
Your ability to sense the position of your body, known as proprioception, is often damaged after an injury. Physiotherapists use the combination of different exercises to restore your mobility, regain strength, get back to your previous activities and work sooner, and help prevent any future injuries.
Some of the rehabilitation programs available at Apollo Homecare is listed below:
