Physiotherapy is a healthcare discipline that focuses on improving physical function and mobility, reducing pain, and preventing disability through the use of exercise, manual therapy, and other techniques. Patients who work with a physiotherapist can learn how to manage their conditions through exercise and other techniques, which can improve their quality of life and reduce their reliance on drugs or surgery.
Physiotherapy can also be helpful in preventing future injuries or complications. For instance, individuals who have suffered from a stroke may receive physiotherapy to regain their ability to walk and perform other activities of daily living, which can reduce their risk of falls and other complications. By using evidence-based techniques, physiotherapy can help patients to recover from injuries or illnesses, improve their physical function, and prevent future problems.
Major therapies performed during physiotherapy
Ultrasound therapy utilizes ultrasonic waves that create a warming effect that can have positive impacts on the treated area and surrounding tissues. The waves create a vibration that helps stimulate collagen formation, generating heat deep within the tissues, improving pain relief, reducing muscular spasms, and promoting tissue healing.
In addition to these benefits, therapeutic ultrasound can also help reduce healing time after a sports injury. This is achieved by transporting more mast cells to the injured area, which increases blood flow and improves the body’s inflammatory response to the injury.
Collagen, the main structural component of tendons and ligaments, is also activated by therapeutic ultrasound. This increase in collagen can accelerate tissue regeneration and healing, as well as have a positive impact on any fibrous scar tissue that may form due to the damage.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current to alleviate pain. This therapy involves a TENS unit, which is a battery-operated device that delivers electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the skin’s surface, typically near nerves or trigger points where the pain originates.
TENS therapy works through two mechanisms. One theory suggests that the electric current stimulates nerve cells to prevent pain signals from being transmitted, thus modifying the sensation of pain. Another theory proposes that nerve stimulation increases the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals, known as endorphins. These endorphins then inhibit the perception of pain, leading to pain relief.
Percussive massage, also known as percussion massage, involves applying rapid and repetitive pressure, along with vibration therapy, to the soft tissue. The massage head moves forcefully and quickly, directly applying pressure to the soft tissue while the vibrations engage the outer layer of the skin.
Massage guns are handheld devices that deliver percussive therapy, and different brands and models offer various features to suit individual needs. When selecting a massage gun, it’s important to consider factors such as the number of speeds available, as more options provide greater versatility. Additionally, it’s essential to consider the weight of the massager, as you may need to hold it for an extended period. A massager in the range of 2-4 pounds is typically ideal. Noise is another factor to consider, as it may impact where you use the gun and the overall relaxation experience. Finally, it’s crucial to evaluate the battery life of the massage gun to ensure that it’s always ready when needed.
