PhysiotherapyPhysical therapy includes exercise therapy and physical therapy factor.Is the use of human physiological response to physical stimulation made to achieve Therapeutic purposes.  Exercise therapy, is the use of instruments, hand or the patient’s own strength, by some movement (active or passive motion),So that patients receive systemic or local motor function, sensory function recovery training methods.  Physical factor therapy,Abbreviation”physiotherapy”By nature or man-made physical factor on the human body,In the treatment and prevention disease. Many kinds of physical factors, for the rehabilitation of two categories: First, the use of physical factors of nature, sun, Air, sea, spa and spa and other therapies; the second is the application artificial physical factors, there are electrical, optical, ultrasonic, magnetic, Heat treatment, water and bio-feedback.

The role of physical therapy  

  1. Anti-inflammatory: acute inflammation such as the choice of ultraviolet, microwave, ultrashort wave therapy for subacute or chronic inflammation can choose short Waves, infrared therapy.   
  2. Analgesic: such as magnetic, electrical interference therapy, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation showed a significant analgesic effect.  
  3. Sedation: hydrotherapy, electric sleep therapy, negative air ion therapy.  
  4. Excitatory effects: low frequency and medium frequency electrical therapy to treat muscular atrophy.   
  5. Improve blood circulation: Spa, DC therapy, high-frequency electric therapy can cause tissue reaction congestion.  
  6. Regulating autonomic and visceral.   
  7. Loosen adhesions and scar softening: ultrasonic, audio therapy were significantly loosen adhesions and scar softening effect.  
  8. Sterilization: for example, ultraviolet therapy.   
  9. Cancer: high-frequency, microwave, and other methods for hyperthermia treatment of cancer have a certain effect.   

The superiority of physical therapy

50 First time, it was noted that the physical factor has its unique role in the care and treatment of disease, particularly in sub-health stateState treatment,It shows incomparable superiority.With the development of technology,Equipment and means of physical therapy factors also dayMore perfect.

  1. First of all,Various physical factors act directly on the parts of the body,Can improve local discomfort and symptoms,Such as the neck,shoulder,waist,Leg pain, whole body weakness, obesity, constipation, And speed up blood circulation, promote and pain caused by toxic substances excreted asuse. IF electrotherapy, ultrasound, semiconductor laser, infrared, magnetic therapy, paraffin, etc., is a typical representative of such action. 
  2. Second, a variety of physical factors on the skin, muscles, and other sensory organs (such as eyes, ears, nose) were benign stimulation,Brain its integral role,Nerve or humoral regulation by the body,Thereby restoring and maintaining body balance,Make irritability,Insomnia, headache, chest tightness and other symptoms can be improved and eliminated. Such as music therapy, biofeedback, color light therapy, aroma therapy,Spa, air ion therapy. Interaction, synergy, so that the body physiological indexes returned to normal. Physical factorTreatment of sub-health state of the irreplaceable role.
