Physiotherapy - methods of treatment, types of procedures

Massage

Treatment with electricity

Treatment with heat and cold

Laser therapy

Treatment with magnetic field

Treatment with ultrasound


Physiotherapy is a way to treat diseases with the help of various physical factors, such as heat, cold, electric current, magnetic UV and IR radiation, as well as with the help of therapeutic mud, massage, hirudotherapy.

Physiotherapy alone is difficult to achieve a complete cure, it has a visible effect only in the early stages of the development of the disease, but we advise you to use physiotherapy as an aid in the fight against a variety of ailments.

In addition, practice shows that physiotherapeutic procedures can be used as a preventive measure, as they help strengthen the immune system and activate important biochemical processes in the body.

Massage

It is a mechanical effect on the human body with the help of hands, tools or special devices. This method has been used to treat, relax, strengthen the body for thousands of years. Today we offer our patients many varieties of massage. Of course, as with any medical procedure, there are contraindications for massage, so we advise you to consult a doctor before making an appointment with a massage therapist.

The most popular type of massage is general health massage. It helps to improve blood microcirculation, which, in turn, contributes to better nutrition of tissues and internal organs. Our patients note that general health massage improves muscle tone, helps to relax and get rid of fatigue.

Anti-cellulite massage is often used as an aid in the struggle for a slender figure - the masseur helps to establish lymph circulation, which helps to increase skin turgor and burn subcutaneous fat. After a course of anti-cellulite massage, the skin becomes more toned and even.

Acupressure may seem a little painful, but it is great for headaches, diseases of the nervous system, endocrinological diseases. Reflex segmental massage is a way of influencing the internal organs of a person through special projection zones. So, by doing a back massage, you can reduce pain in the elbow joint, hand or shoulder.

Cosmetic facial massage is an excellent way to preserve youthful skin. It helps to make it more elastic, improve blood flow in the tissues, which contributes to a better complexion and smoothing wrinkles.

There are many more massage techniques that can cope with a variety of diseases, relieve unpleasant symptoms, and strengthen the body. Do not neglect these procedures, they will really help you feel better.

Treatment with electricity

With the help of procedures based on the action of electric current, such as phonophoresis, galvanization, electrophoresis, we can send the medicine exactly to the place where its action is important, and in the smallest doses that will not cause harm to the body. This method helps to avoid addiction to drugs.

Darsonvalization is an effective way to improve blood circulation in tissues, which is used in cosmetology, in the treatment of skin diseases, as an auxiliary method in the fight against hypertension, gynecological diseases, sleep disorders. During darsonvalization, the doctor sends high-voltage alternating current pulses through special electrodes. The procedure is almost imperceptible for the patient, but the positive effect is usually noticeable after the first procedure.

Heat and cold treatment

Warming up with UV radiation or microwaves is a way to combat respiratory diseases known to everyone since childhood. We advise using inductothermy or heating with high frequency currents to combat neuroses, and UHF therapy for the treatment of sinusitis.

Cryotherapy is a cold treatment that usually uses liquid nitrogen. Exposure to low temperature helps to activate the internal forces of the body to fight ailments: it strengthens the immune system, relieves swelling, spasms, reduces pain symptoms, rejuvenates and promotes the release of endorphins into the blood.

Laser therapy

It has antiviral and antimicrobial effects, helps expand capillaries, enhances blood and lymph microcirculation, improves immunity, lowers cholesterol, and helps wounds heal faster. This method helps to prevent the transition of the disease from the acute stage to the chronic stage and to reduce the recommended dose of drugs.

Magnetic field treatment

Magnetotherapy has a strengthening effect on the body, improves metabolic processes in cells and tissues, normalizes blood pressure, helps to improve the blood supply to the brain and its saturation with oxygen. The work of all body systems - endocrine, lymphatic, nervous, cardiovascular and others - improves under the influence of a magnetic field. The internal reserves of the body are activated, which is expressed in a feeling of cheerfulness, improved appetite, sleep, increased efficiency.

Indications for magnetotherapy are sleep disorders, depression, diseases of the respiratory system, digestive organs, gallbladder.

Ultrasonic treatment

As with electric current, various medications can be administered with ultrasound. So we can significantly delay the period of addiction to the drug, reduce the possibility of negative effects of the drug on the body. Ultrasound is able to break down fat molecules, which is why it is often used in the fight against cellulite. In addition, it helps to get rid of infiltrates and seals and prevents the formation of adhesions after operations.

Physiotherapy is not a panacea, but the impressive list of positive effects of the procedures makes us recommend it to patients with a wide variety of diagnoses. Of course, one single procedure will not bring significant benefits, however, if you regularly take supportive physiotherapy courses, you will notice that the diseases recede, and the mood rises, as does the body's resistance to various ailments.

Therefore, you should not ignore the doctor's instructions: to drink a pill for a cold or to plaster a fracture is, of course, absolutely necessary, but only a set of measures, which includes physiotherapy, can ensure complete recovery.

Of course, visiting a physiotherapy room takes time, but health is much more important than any entertainment.

    Myths about physiotherapy

    A chapter from the book "Physiotherapy for health and longevity" by T. A. Protsenko

    but our citizens' ideas about physiotherapy leave much to be desired... Let's talk about the most common myths about physiotherapy.

    The first myth. Physiotherapy is a secondary and not so important type of treatment, without which it is quite possible to do without. The main thing is drug therapy.

    In fact, the use of physiotherapeutic agents can reduce the time for treatment by 1.5 - 2 times, stop the further progression of a chronic disease and reduce the frequency of relapses. With physiotherapy, the recovery of the body is much more complete than with medication alone. After all, physiotherapeutic methods stimulate the protective and compensatory forces of the body, the natural mechanisms of self-purification, self-healing and regeneration. Therefore, complex treatment using physical means contributes to the rapid removal of toxins and toxins, the erasure of energy-information traces of the disease, dramatically increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to tissues, renews cells, normalizes the activity of the endocrine glands and the nervous system.

    And when the acute period of illness passes, physiotherapy is generally the main means of medical care. In addition, physiotherapy not only goes well with taking medications, but often enhances their effect, allows you to reduce the dose of drugs, and reduces the likelihood of side effects.

    The second myth. Physiotherapy is preferable to other methods of treatment, it will cure everything, and drugs can be dispensed with.

    This is the other extreme. Synthetic drugs, although they have a lot of side effects, clog the body and are alien to it by nature, but, nevertheless, it is necessary to take them, especially in the acute period of the disease. Another thing is that often from a long list of recommended drugs, a maximum of two or three are really needed, and the rest can be completely replaced with physiotherapeutic agents. For example, with an acute infectious disease, antibiotics are needed, sometimes antipyretics, with exacerbation of sciatica with severe pain, anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs are needed, with allergic diseases, antihistamines, etc. Against the background of such treatment, you can start using physiotherapy and, as improve your condition, gradually switch to non-drug remedies and take fewer medications.

    The third myth. All physiotherapy methods are warming up and therefore potentially dangerous.

    In fact, the thermal effect directly accompanies only some of the types of physiotherapy. There are currently no confirmed data on the harm allegedly caused by physical therapy. This also applies to thermal effects. The devices recommended for use first go through numerous stages of scientific and clinical testing in order to identify possible side effects and contraindications. If this method can stimulate, for example, the growth of an existing benign formation, the doctor will not prescribe it to you. To be afraid of any physiotherapy means to refuse the opportunity to fully be treated. If there are any concerns, you need to share them with the doctor, and the optimal solution will be found.

    Fourth myth. The shorter the course of physiotherapy, the better.

    The beginning, development and attenuation of any disease is a cyclical process that proceeds according to its own laws. For three days, no disease goes away. Even if the body temperature has decreased, the pain has subsided, the swelling has decreased, this does not mean that everything is already in order. The body coped with some symptoms, compensated for them with a powerful release of biologically active substances, but at the cellular level and the level of organs, pathological changes will persist for a long time. A long recovery process is ahead - the elimination of edema and inflammation, the removal of decay products, toxins, the accumulation of energy potential, the regeneration of surviving cells and the accelerated growth of new cells, the normalization of the endocrine, nervous, immune systems, the restoration of the normal composition of blood, lymph, etc.

    Even if the visible symptoms of the disease have disappeared, you are defenseless, like a small child - so much effort has been expended by the body in the struggle for recovery! Not to cure the disease means not to allow the body to fully recover, to bring all adaptive and protective functions back to normal. Therefore, so many chronic diseases - "more important" things make people rush somewhere at a time when the body still needs at least two to three weeks to fully compensate.

    Any method that speeds up the recovery process is a great boon, and nothing compares to physical therapy. You should never focus on well-being when deciding how many procedures to take. You should trust the evidence-based developments that the doctor adheres to. Perhaps, after treatment with one physiotherapy agent, based on practical experience, he will prescribe a course of other physiotherapy procedures - for your benefit.

    Myth five. The more physical procedures taken at the same time, the faster the recovery will come.

    Not necessarily. Each physiotherapeutic agent has its own specific mechanism of action. Physical methods can complement each other, and then the therapeutic effect is enhanced, but it happens that for one reason or another it is impossible to combine them. You need to understand: any physiotherapy is an impact on the whole organism as a whole, while a complex set of compensatory-adaptive reactions is launched, which are characteristic only for the type of therapy used. It is not always advisable to bring down the fine tuning of the body with another influence, and sometimes it is harmful. Especially in the acute period of the disease, when the available reserve mechanisms are already strained. The appointment of two or more procedures at this time can lead to an even greater exacerbation. Also, people's bodies are very different.

    Some people have so many energy reserves that they will swallow a lot of medicines, and without much effort they will endure two or three physiotherapy procedures, and even take a steam bath. But the health of the majority of compatriots is in a more deplorable state. And here it is necessary to think three times how much and what to appoint, so as not to harm. In this regard, you need to fully trust the doctor's recommendations - he will prescribe you a treatment based on the capabilities of your body.

    Sixth myth. You will definitely be helped by something that helped a neighbor, godfather or fellow traveler in public transport.

    Many patients insist on having procedures they have heard rave about. For most patients, procedures such as electrophoresis or ultrasound seem too “simple” to heal them quickly and efficiently. Having previously asked those suffering from approximately the same disease what helped them, people rush to the clinic and demand, for example, only “laser” or “electromassage”. All this would be funny, but...

    Firstly, the disease can be completely different. So, pain in the lumbar region can serve as a symptom not only of osteochondrosis. Secondly, different stages of the disease require the use of different physiotherapeutic agents (your friend could come with a chronic sluggish process, and you have an acute period). And finally - this is the most important thing! - Each person reacts to this or that influence very individually. One responds well to treatment with a magnetic field, the other - with infrared radiation, the third - with thermal exposure. One of the advantages of physiotherapy lies in the fact that you can choose a treatment for everyone, based on his individual characteristics. But this should be done by a doctor, guided by scientific recommendations, his professional experience and intuition.

    Seventh myth. You will definitely be helped by what worked last time.

    The question is complex. On the one hand, if a person responds well, for example, to high-frequency therapy, then, of course, it will give a certain therapeutic effect even with repeated use. But not necessarily, and far from always to the extent “like last time.” The body is a very complex and dynamic system, it is constantly changing, and its diseases reflect these changes. Here is sciatica. In the first case, it could be provoked by cold, hypothermia, and then by weight lifting. And the treatment will be different. Or: two years ago, blood pressure was "naughty", but not very, but now it is steadily elevated, which limits the range of physiotherapy that can be applied. And of course, if magnetotherapy with thrombophlebitis once helped you, it’s not at all a fact that it will also successfully relieve an exacerbation of peptic ulcer, and you should not demand its appointment from a doctor.

    Eighth myth. Procedures that are not accompanied by any sensations are worth nothing, so-so, too weak.

    A very common request to appoint "something stronger" - as a rule, it comes from men. This means: prescribe a procedure that gives a sufficiently strong sensation. It seems like there are no sensations - there is no action, and there is no effect. This is the way of thinking of a considerable number of people. Only personal experience can dissuade them. When pain, numbness, and swelling disappear after several magnetic therapy procedures, which tormented for a couple of months, it is difficult to remain a skeptic. But probably. In other cases, the doctor prescribes the same “tangible” methods (unless, of course, there are contraindications). But, frankly speaking, there is no difference in effectiveness between the “perceptible” and “imperceptible” procedures. Sometimes the latter are even much more useful, no matter how hard it is for our reason to believe it. So, electromagnetic waves of non-thermal power affect the finer structural and control complexes of the body, their influence is deeper and more multifaceted, but the procedure is not a test of masculinity.

    A person who is really worried about his health, who wants to get better in the long term, of course, will listen to the doctor's recommendations and will be treated as he sees fit. But if you suddenly come across a sick person, for whom the main thing is to relieve the pain as soon as possible, and then at least the grass does not grow, then the doctor usually meets him halfway: and prescribes something “strong”. Recovery can and will go faster. Well, soon - welcome back to the reception.

    The ninth myth. If you have already chosen the time for trips to the physiotherapy department, you need to treat all existing diseases.

    A complete delusion. Each disease is a complex process during which there is a struggle between pathological changes and compensatory reactions of the body. For each of them, only a certain physiotherapeutic agent and certain techniques are suitable.

    True, if two diseases have approximately common causes and mechanisms of development (for example, osteochondrosis of the spine and osteoarthritis of the joints) or represent different symptoms of the same pathological process (allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma), then they can be treated together, maybe and one method of physiotherapy. But hemorrhoids and cholecystitis, arthritis and inflammation of the ear - sorry...

    The disease with the most severe symptoms is usually treated. It is for him that they are accepted by all available means. And if a patient with acute bronchitis asks at the same time to "help with the joints or the heel spur", the doctor is at an impasse. The body is not a machine that can be put in garages to change at least half of the parts at once. The body must be treated with care and help only where it really “burns”.

    The use of several physical influences on different areas for various diseases is fraught with an overload of protective-compensatory systems, which will definitely bring harm. Therefore, concomitant diseases are treated only when the underlying disease is already in remission, when recovery begins.

    Tenth myth. The use of household physiotherapy devices completely replaces seeking qualified medical care.

    Let's start with the fact that before you start self-treatment, you need to know the exact diagnosis. Only a doctor can put it on the basis of the examination and the results of the examination. Without this, it is generally not recommended to use physiotherapy, including at home. Treatment with devices is resorted to mainly when pain interferes with life. However, pain is a symptom of a wide variety of diseases, and not all of them need to be treated with physiotherapy methods. Most of the complications from the use of household appliances are connected precisely with this - they put them on all the places that hurt, having made a diagnosis for themselves. But even if the disease is established, the effect of professional equipment cannot be compared with "home doctors". Ease of operation and maximum security, alas, limit the possibilities.

    Professional physiotherapy devices have more power, a much wider range of exposure parameters, and therefore the therapeutic effect is usually higher. It is advisable to use household appliances only with a slight exacerbation, at the stage of recovery (if it is not possible to go to the clinic) and for the prevention of diseases. If the exacerbation is severe, then it is better to be treated in a medical institution. Another disadvantage of "home" treatment is the indiscipline of the patient. They begin to be treated with enthusiasm, but as soon as they "let go", they abandon everything, forgetting that they have to go through a whole, full course of therapy.

    Many people have a few physiotherapy devices in their closet, acquired “on the occasion”. Often, a person did not bother to get acquainted with one of them in detail, having carefully read the instructions, recommendations for treatment. Naturally, in the case of illness, if he uses them, then not then, not then and not so. Wasted money and missed the opportunity to really help yourself.

    Eleventh myth. If in the past there was intolerance to any physiotherapeutic agent, then the rest will give side effects.

    A belief that is completely untrue. It happens, of course, that the patient does not tolerate, for example, electrotherapy - rashes appear at the site of application of wet pads, and the current irritates, even if its strength is small, and after the procedure, the head is spinning for some time, etc. But this does not mean at all that other methods of physiotherapy cannot be used either. There is nothing terrible in the very fact of intolerance, because we can’t tolerate everything food either - it’s just an individual reaction of the body. By the way, we should be grateful to our body for such a sharp reaction: it shows us that there will be no sense from treatment anyway, but we can do harm. Although often the same remedy, applied to another part of the body and in a different dosage, is well tolerated and has a good therapeutic effect.

    Replacing a physiotherapy is the prerogative of a doctor, it is he who should be contacted in cases where the prescribed treatment has any side effects. In all his practice, the author has not met a single patient who would not be suitable for absolutely all procedures. A reasonable and timely adjustment of treatment allows you to help a person in any case, however, if there are no absolute contraindications.

    The twelfth myth. “I have already done three procedures, but nothing helps.

    Having worked hard to collect a bunch of diseases by the age of 40, a person is often convinced that by doing a favor and finally turning to a doctor, he should be cured of everything, immediately and for a long time. The curious phenomenon of the mass popularity of various charlatans - healers, psychics, magicians and others is apparently explained precisely by this impatience. So they promise "with a guarantee" to improve your health from head to toe and forever. Not like boring recommendations and forecasts of doctors. However, such magic does not happen, including in medicine.

    Any disease has a latent, latent, period and phase of clinical manifestations. The latent period lasts for years and represents a stubborn struggle of the body with a harmful factor, which we do not feel, the desire to defeat it, limit it or adapt to it. The phase of clinical manifestation means that the body has lost, its protective and compensatory capabilities have been exhausted and cannot cope with the disease. By this time, the pathological process is already “built into” the body, its cellular and energy-informational structures. The desire of a person in a few days to compensate for what has been destroyed for years, and urgently “uproot” the disease, simply testifies to his complete ignorance in the field of medicine and his own health.

    It takes time, and a lot of it, to stop acute symptoms, to help the body begin a gradual restructuring from a painful to a compensated state, to restore depleted energy resources. In homeopathy, for example, it is believed that you need to treat for as many months as the disease lasts for years. Perhaps this is true. In any case, no physiotherapeutic agent can work such incredible miracles. With the help of the device, one can relatively quickly overcome pain, relieve inflammation, swelling, etc., but a chronic process requires a rather long treatment. Usually, the first positive changes are felt already by the 56th procedure. But it may well be, and after 10 sessions there will be no significant improvement. You need to be prepared for this, since you have begun to be treated. Patience - and the disease will recede.

    The thirteenth myth. You can seriously help yourself by buying a physiotherapy apparatus of unknown origin from an eloquent distributor.

    It is usually the low price and the fact that “you don't have to go anywhere” that attracts you: you give him money, he immediately gives you goods. It's the master's business, but it must be warned: in most cases, the products are very unreliable, break quickly, and the therapeutic effect is extremely doubtful. It is better to add some money and buy with guaranteed quality and domestic production.

    Pay no attention to advertising, both verbal and written. We have already learned how to speak and write colorfully, vividly and convincingly, if you need to sell something. But, most likely, the promised has nothing to do with the actual state of things. Truly serious and effective "know-how" is quickly patented, reputable manufacturing companies are organized, and distribution goes through open channels through legally formalized structures.
