Physiotherapy is a form of physical medicine that helps rehabilitate one from physical impairment and promote movement, function, and quality of life through examination, physical intervention and diagnosis by using mechanical forces and movement. Physiotherapy plays a centre stage in the recovering process of a patient that has undergone physical harm because the patient gets to regularly move the part of the body to relax it and remove any pain and learn to use the part as efficiently as before it was hurt, and this ensures quick recovery as compared to use of drugs and surgeries because the patient is completely engaged in his or her recovery procedure which gives them more hope and renews the resolve of working towards recovering. During the physiotherapy sessions, it is always important that a professional doctor or nurse to help in guiding the patient on the different physical exercises so as to ensure that they do not get hurt by overdoing the exercises or in case they get stiff and need help to get to a comfortable place and relax before continuing with other exercises as prescribed by a doctor. Physiotherapy is very beneficial in many ways including helping to deal with back pains or sudden injuries, managing long-terms medical conditions such as asthma and preparation for sporting events or child birth since a person gets to learn how to relax which can also be applied at stressful and tiresome events at a later time. Physiotherapists help to treat and manage a wide range of diseases and disorders while at the same time helping people to recover from problems such as physical pains that are not going away, injured limbs and recovery from stressful situations that may have happened in a person’s life such as accidents. For patients who have been through a successful disease treatment, a doctor may prescribe a suitable physiotherapist to take the patient through a session of exercises that can help them to be normal again by subjecting them to regular exercises that are specifically aimed at addressing the patient’s problem.
Muscle stretching as a physiotherapy exercise is important because it helps in warming up the muscles so that when one starts doing difficult exercises it becomes easier since the muscles are more flexible and can therefore not tear in the process and it is very important when one wants to get involved in sports or other activities that might tire the muscles. The use of physiotherapy instrument mobilization involves some tools that are designed to mobilise, relax and keep spinal and other joints but they are used by special trained physiotherapists only. Stiff muscles can also be treated by the use of physiotherapy exercises that will help in ensuring that these muscles become relaxed and eventually heal by starting slowly and intensifying the exercises as the muscles adjust and become more comfortable and move about the joints easily.
