Physiotherapy techniques and approaches can improve a person’s ability to use parts of their body that are affected by a health condition or injury. For example, arthritis is a chronic condition that causes painful, stiff joints and is often associated with ageing. Physiotherapy can help keep the joints mobile and strengthen the surrounding muscles.
Physiotherapy can help people of all ages and social backgrounds. In particular, physiotherapy can help rehabilitate (restore to health) people who have:
- had a stroke when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off
- heart problems and breathing difficulties
- a sports injury
- recently had surgery that affects their movement or mobility
Almost all people who have an injury or a physical disability can benefit from physiotherapy, including children and elderly people.
Physiotherapy help people overcome a wide range of physical health problems, including:
- bone and joint conditions
- heart and lung conditions
- neurological conditions (those affecting the brain and nervous system)
- childhood conditions
- conditions that occur in old age
Energy based therapy, which is sometimes referred to as electrotherapy in the UK, is a form of treatment that uses different types of energy, such as electric currents or impulses (small electric shocks) to stimulate the nervous system. The electric impulses make your muscles contract (tighten), which can help ease pain and promote healing.
Energy based therapies do not hurt, although with some types, such as TENS, you may feel a slight tingling sensation just below the surface of your skin. Energy based therapies include:
- TENS – a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machine delivers an electric current to stop your nerves sending pain signals to your brain and encourages endorphins (natural painkilling hormones) to be released.
- Ultrasound – high-frequency sound waves treat deep tissue injuries by stimulating blood circulation and cell activity. It is thought to help reduce pain and muscle spasm and speed up the healing process.
- Laser therapy – lasers (narrow beams of light) help reduce pain and muscle spasms. Laser therapy is thought to be most effective at treating tendon conditions, although studies have shown that it may not be as effective as other types of energy based therapies.
