Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a well-known treatment for injuries and for recovery after surgery. What you may not know is that there are plenty of other conditions that physiotherapy can help.
- Urological complaints. Urological problems may be common as we age, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Nor do you need to medicate yourself and put yourself at risk of the side effects. Physiotherapy that stimulates blood flow to the pelvic area and strengthens pelvic floor muscles can often resolve common urological problems.
- Fibromyalgia. Sufferers of a number of musculoskeletal issues, including fibromyalgia, can notice positive changes with physiotherapy and home exercise. Even aches and pains that have not been diagnosed as fibromyalgia are treatable.
- Respiratory issues. Breathing uses more parts of your body than you might think. Both acute and chronic conditions such as asthma, pneumonia, and bronchitis can be managed and treated with physiotherapy to reduce symptoms or overcome some conditions. Breathing exercises can help other issues, such as sleep apnea, as well.
- Undiagnosed pain. The truth of the matter is that doctors cannot always find a reason for pain and discomfort. They can rule out a number of things, but sometimes that is the best they can do. Because physiotherapy can get things working in balance again, patients often find a lessening of symptoms. The fact that it can combat obesity can lead to improvement in overall health, too.
