What is called physiotherapy?

 


The word physiotherapy is used to refer to different types of therapy, including manual therapy and exercise therapy. Manual therapy includes manipulation, massage, and other hands-on techniques. Exercise therapy might include exercises such as stretching or strengthening muscle groups or aerobic work.

This article will examine the different types of physiotherapy used in the treatment of disease and injury. We will also look at what conditions they can be used to treat.


What are the different types of physiotherapy?


There are different types of physiotherapy and they can be broadly classified as follows:


- Manual therapy – where trained professionals use various techniques to assist with your pain management and physical functioning;


- Massage therapy – involves the use of hands to treat muscles, through the application of pressure or manipulation. This type of physiotherapy invokes relaxation;


- Exercise therapy – these are activities that you can do on your own or in a supervised environment with the help of a therapist. The objectives behind these activities are to increase muscle strength, improve range of motion and reduce pain.
