What Is Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy is a health care profession which assists people to restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being. The terms “physiotherapy” and “physical therapy” mean the same thing and are used interchangeably, as are the terms “physiotherapist” and “physical therapist”.
Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability. Physiotherapy includes rehabilitation, as well as prevention of injury, and promotion of health and fitness. Physiotherapists often work in teams with other health professionals to help meet an individual’s health care needs.
The most important physical and mechanical factors and the techniques and treatment methods used by physiotherapists are the following:
- Ultra-violet (UV)
- Heat (Infra-red)
- Lower frequency electrical currents (such as TENS, faradic, interferential)
- Electromagnetic factors
- Laser and diathermy
- Special machines for joint movements
- Therapeutic exercises
- Special exercises for professional athletes
Physiotherapy can help you…
- Prevent injury
- Increase freedom of movement and mobility
- Stay active
- Reduce pain
- Breathe easier
- Become stronger and more flexible
- … So you can resume activities important to you.
High Power Laser
Laser therapy has been used for many years. At first, cold or low power lasers were used, but at present time high performance lasers have been used in recent decades. High-powered lasers can penetrate deeper into the tissue than previous lasers (or low-powered lasers), deliver more energy to the area of treatment and have greater efficacy and shorter treatment times.
Powerful lasers are 52 times more powerful than conventional lasers and have an effective penetration depth of more than 6 cm, whereas conventional cold or low power lasers have an effective penetration depth of half cm and can be useful in the treatment of superficial and small tissues.
The benefits of high power laser
Laser therapy uses two types of pulse and continuous mode. The continuous laser treatment is applied to the nerve fibers to block and to the control the pain signals. Another method used is pulsed mode where laser beam is applied to the affected area and reduces inflammatory substances and mediators in the affected area and by stimulating the lymph node to drain fluid into the area and eliminate edema. Most importantly, laser stimulation of chromophores in cell mitochondria increases ATP production and consequently increases cellular energy and restores damaged tissue structure. Therefore, accelerating the healing process in connective tissue cells improves the healing of soft tissues (muscle, ligament, disc, etc.) and improves the function of nerve fibers by reducing recovery time and sensory and motor nerve recovery.
High-energy shockwave sound waves transmit mechanical force to body tissues and cause the following effects:
Shockwave therapy has shown to effectively treat the following conditions:
- Feet – heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis
- Elbow – tennis and golfers elbow
- Shoulder – calcific tendinosis of rotator cuff muscles
- Knee – patellar tendonitis
- Hip – bursitis
- Lower leg – shin splints
- Upper leg – Iliotibial band friction syndrome
- Back pain – lumbar and cervical spine regions and chronic muscular pain
What is dry needling?
Dry needling is also called trigger point dry needling or myofascial trigger point dry needling. It is done by acupuncturists, some chiropractors, medical doctors, and some physical therapists (PTs) to treat myofascial pain. The word “myofascial” is made up of the roots “myo” (which refers to muscle) and “fascia” (which refers to the tissue that connects muscle).
A patient may experience different sensations when being needled, muscle soreness, aching and a muscle twitch when a needle is inserted is considered to be a good sign. The needles may be placed deeply or superficially, for shorter or longer periods of time, depending on what type of pain is being treated and how long it has lasted. Shorter periods of time would mean that needle would stay in the muscle for seconds, while longer periods could mean 10 to 15 minutes.
