Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is an effective treatment tool that is often used in conjunction with other modalities to allow a patient to heal faster and stronger. After an extensive illness or injury, the body is significantly weakened, either by the lack of movement or damage to a specific area of the body. The exercises included in a physical therapy treatment plan increase a patient's range of motion, improve mobility, and rebuild their strength and stamina. Physical therapy allows the patient to regain their strength and mobility in a safe and controlled atmosphere that reduces the risk of re-injuring or stressing the area. Patients are encouraged to perform exercises and activities at home, as well as at their appointments for a more complete healing.
Physical therapy and chiropractic care go hand in hand when it comes to treating physical injuries. While chiropractic care focuses on the structure of the body on both muscular and skeletal levels, physical therapy's primary concern is how the area functions. It improves strength and increases a person's level of mobility over time so that the injury has time to heal and return to its original state. Once the healing process has started, physical therapy can actually hasten the process by increasing blood flow to the area. The stronger the area becomes, the less likely it is to be reinjured.
Physical therapy works to relieve joint pain by increasing the amount of freshly oxygenated blood to the area. Improving blood flow accomplishes several things. It strengthens both the muscles and the skeletal structure and reduces inflammation at the injury site. Flooding the area with blood allows for the fluid from the inflammation to gradually dissipate. As the inflammation decreases, the person's range of motion begins to improve. Inflammation and the stiffness that often accompany it can cause pain when a person attempts to move the injured area. By improving blood flow and strengthening all of the tissues associated with the injury, pain is gradually reduced while healing moves forward at a faster pace.
Massage therapy and chiropractic care are effective treatment options that can be used together or on their own in a comprehensive pain management program. When used together, massage therapy offers support to the chiropractic adjustments and helps the musculoskeletal structure retain the adjusted position. With each adjustment and massage therapy session, the soft tissues become stronger and are better able to stabilize the area, preventing re-injury and hastening the healing process. Combining both modalities allows for a more complete healing especially in cases involving plantar fasciitis and other health conditions that affect the joints and connective tissues in the feet.
Massage therapy reduces joint pain by improving circulation, eliminating inflammation, and offering comfort through the use of healing touch. Deep tissue massage involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body. This manipulation releases toxins and by-products that are released as a part of the body's physiological function. As circulation improves, wastes are flushed from the body and new, stronger tissues are formed. Knee, hip, shoulder and other joints often become stiff and immobile due to inflammation from injuries and illnesses. The impact that massage therapy has on the soft tissues of the body extends to other areas of the body as well, including the joints and vital organs.
Patients who suffer from fibromyalgia and other health conditions that affect the musculoskeletal structure can benefit greatly through healing touch. Massage therapy allows the comfort of physical touch with the manipulation of the soft tissues. Deep tissue works the muscles much in the same way as regular exercise without the physical stress on the skeletal system. Exercising with fibromyalgia can be difficult. Chiropractors have found that combining massage therapy along with chiropractic adjustments can help a person regain their strength and actually reduce their level of pain. This allows for more freedom of movement and an increase in overall flexibility and range of motion.
