Stay healthy, go to a physical therapist

Sometimes something bad happens to a person, for example, breaks a leg. This is not the worst case scenario yet, because you can also break your spine. Then the problem is serious. There are also less dramatic injuries, such as sprains and sprains. In addition, there is a wide range of possibilities in terms of internal damage, such as strokes, necroses and other things that also affect human mobility. These are the problems that modern physiotherapy deals with, also known in orthopedics as rescue before surgery. Of course, it is not always possible to avoid the inevitable, but if it is possible, it is thanks to this type of therapy that give great results and allow you to get over even great health problems.


Influencing the body through various stimuli can stimulate tissue regeneration or inhibit their degeneration. It sounds very good and, in addition, it really does, because the effectiveness of physiotherapy treatments has been proven by numerous clinical trials and scientific studies. Just as by exercising regularly the abdominal muscles, you can avoid liposuction in old age, we can also exercise other body tissues in various ways to ensure their longevity and not to have health problems for many years. It happens that from the beginning of life we ​​need some support for our body to develop properly. For all children from an early age there is a separate category, which is physiotherapy in pediatrics, thanks to which thousands of little patients gain fitness and can catch up with their peers. They do not always need to undergo complicated surgeries, especially since, as creatures that develop and have a lot of vital energy, children respond well to treatment and are able to overcome adversities with the strength that amazes adults. Therefore, even if it seems that an infant or a preschooler is a weak and slender creature, it is important to remember that it is in this group of people that the effects of therapy are the most spectacular and it’s nice to look at. Operations, on the other hand, are a real threat and burden for the body and it must always be taken into account, even if the benefits of them are large. Surgical procedures should not be treated as a simple solution to a problem, because nothing It’s not that simple. In medicine, however, it can be much easier and safer to put in effort and undergo exercise therapy and rehabilitation than to go under the scalpel and wait for miraculous results. After surgery, you always have to struggle to get to the form before the surgery, because it exhausts the body and physiotherapy is needed , where the doctor’s work is combined with the patient’s work for a common, satisfactory effect.

Effects of therapeutic sessions


Speaking of effects, it is worth considering what effects you will notice after undergoing a therapeutic session. There will be some improvement for sure, but what exactly is it? This question may be asked by patients who decide to undergo treatments. Well, we should hurry up with the explanation that the improvement can be twofold, i.e. complete or incomplete. All the good changes that took place in the patient’s life after the initiation of treatment could be considered incomplete, but they did not allow him to return to everything that the patient was able to do before the injury or disease that caused the loss of fitness. If the world champion in running after a series of visits to a physiotherapist can walk, jump and behave like a normal person, but he no longer wins any competitions, it can be said that in his case physiotherapy  sport brought an incomplete improvement. Of course, by exercising hard and not giving up, probably after months or years the runner will be able to win a race again, but this is only thanks to his ownperseverance and hard work.


It also happens that surgery cannot be avoided. You just have to get inside the body and mechanically, with your hands and tools, repair what has broken. It’s good that medicine allows it, because in the Middle Ages there were no such possibilities and people lost their legs and hands due to banal sprains. Going back to modern times, a good doctor is able to fix this and that, but the procedure itself should be continued in the form of rehabilitation. It can take many forms and help more or less. The truth is that much, if not the most, depends on the patient’s own determination. If he is committed enough to his recovery, he exercises diligently and looks for various methods of support, including physical therapy. In geriatrics, it can be the most difficult to motivate, because the patient knows that he will die soon anyway, so why should he try. Then it is really difficult to help him, you can use some psychological tricks and methods of persuasion, but if you don’t want to, nothing will help. However, there are even geriatric patients who, for some reason, want to remain fit for as long as possible. Perhaps it is kindness towards the family, which you do not want to burden with caring for an infirm grandfather or grandmother.
