Physical treatment methods (physiotherapy)
Physiotherapy is one of the most popular and safest methods of treatment. The number of physiotherapy treatments is impressive, from mustard plasters, parks legs, cans, bathing and massage to different kinds of laser, ultrasound, magnetic fields, electrophoresis and climate micropolarizer currents. Physiotherapy can be a standalone treatment or used in combination with other, for example, surgical or medical.
When assigning some type of physical therapy should take into account the peculiarities of the disease, the stage of its course, the patient’s condition, lifestyle, age, gender, mental and physical condition, as well as geography of residence. Can be Utena and other factors: social help the patient, his attitude to the proposed method of treatment, etc.
Today we can confidently say that there are diseases in which physiotherapy was not effective at certain stages of their treatment, rehabilitation, or prevention of disease.
The main methods of physiotherapy:
Electrotherapy – physiotherapy method, which is based on the impact on organized person electric current in small doses. To the electrotherapy can be attributed Demetriou, darsonvalization, galvanization, as well as some other less common methods; Ultrasonic therapy is a method of physiotherapy based on the use of ultrasound for therapeutic purposes. The therapeutic effect of ultrasound is based on a special effect on the tissues of the body; Laser therapy is a method of physiotherapy, which is based on the application of light radiation (red or infrared) for the treatment and/or prevention of diseases. Features of laser exposure depend on the type of radiation (and thus wavelength) and the energy of quanta absorbed radiation; magnetotherapy – is a method of physiotherapy based on the effects on biological tissue are very weak magnetic fields; Combination therapy – a combination of several methods of physical therapy at the same time. During the research it was ustanovleno that the effectiveness of combined physical therapy is 30% higher than the sequential impact of each method.
Medical center “Doctor Faith” carries out physiotherapy treatment and prevention of diseases using “BTL Combi” is a modern physiotherapy device, manufactured in the UK. This equipment is a serious technical and scientific breakthrough in physiotherapy, combining four therapeutic factor affecting organized person in the same time: ultrasound, laser, magnetic therapy and electrotherapy. “BTL Combi” can be about five thousand forms of currents. It uses multi-frequency ultrasonic system, laser technology and magnetic field. Using this equipment can perform a variety of physical therapy procedures: the unit can be configured for treatment of a disease by simply selecting the desired programme.
