How a physiotherapist can help
The Charted Society of Physiotherapy defines physiotherapy as “Physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status. Physiotherapy is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery. The exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation is at its core." It can be used by people of all ages and state of health. It is used to restore mobility and function in individuals who are disabled, ill or have suffered an injury. Physiotherapists take a holistic view of the person, aiming to see the problem in the context of the person as a whole.
What are physiotherapist trained to do
Physiotherapists are trained to diagnose and treat many different conditions. There are broadly four types of complaint: -
Neurological- these are conditions relating to the brain or nervous system. People who have suffered a stroke, have multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease, for example.
Neuromuscular- any problems with joints, the skeleton or muscles or tendons. Examples are sports injuries, back pain or knee pain.
Cardiovascular- conditions relating to the circulatory system or the heart- sufferers of high blood pressure or people recovering from a heart attack, for example.
Respiratory- this includes sufferers of cystic fibrosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and asthma. It relates to any conditions connected to the lungs and breathing.
What will my first treatments consist of?
As a physiotherapist would look at a patient holistically, their focus would be to educate and advise them how to avoid the problem reoccurring. They would inform the patient of the correct way to lift and carry, how to modify their diet and how to function in a way that avoids pain and injury. The posture will be examined to see if it is affecting the problem. The aim is to improve the overall wellbeing of their patient. They may suggest an exercise regime to improve health and mobility, and to strengthen the body. Manual therapy is an important part of physiotherapy, and would be part of most treatment plans. Manual therapy involves the physiotherapist using massage, manipulation and mobilisation to help to reduce any pain and stiffness, encourage blood flow into the problem area, encourage any excess fluid to drain away and help the patient to become more mobile. This should also give an increased sense of relaxation.
How long will it take to recover?
As with most conditions that depends on a large number of factors. The physiotherapistwill put a treatment plan together which should take you well on your way to recovery
