Physical therapy can be used by anyone to improve the stiffness of muscles and joints that occurs in inflammatory joint disease. These diseases include arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis) which limits range of motion and causes moderate to severe pain.
PT physiotherapy helps eliminate toxins, inflammatory mediators, and free radicals that cause pain, redness, inflammation, and disease.
Traumatic injuries that occur as a result of accidents (traffic accidents, falls or physical shocks) can cause injury to ligaments, bones, muscles, tendons, joint capsule or cartilage. Physiotherapy helps tissue healing by providing warmth and healing support to muscles and tendons for healthy recovery.
Age-related wear affects the integrity of the joints and little can be done to repair the damage; However, by using physical therapy exercises, further damage can be avoided and complications can be reduced.
In addition, physical therapy improves range of motion and activity without pain in damaged osteoporotic joints and also prevents nerve damage to improve numbness, paresthesia and other symptoms.
Unlike other areas of medicine, physiotherapy governs all aspects of medical care. If you have certain risk factors, these exercises can help prevent disease and complications by improving blood circulation and the stability of bone architecture in medical conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, osteopenia, chronic corticosteroid therapy and others.
Physical therapy exercises performed by athletes, elderly patients with poor physical mobility, and pregnant women reduce the risk of joint and ligament damage. Physiotherapy exercises in elderly and hospitalized (bedridden) patients help prevent pressure sores, infections, deep vein thrombosis and other complications.
