How Physiotherapy Can Accelerate the Recovery Process

Physiotherapy has become a lot more popular in the last couple of years and is now widely used for treating different types of injuries. It may be used as a standalone treatment or be combines with other therapeutic practices to facilitate the recovery process. Using a holistic approach, physiotherapy caters to the patient’s overall health and well-being, strengthening the body so that the pain and discomfort caused by the injury can be alleviated.

So, does physiotherapy accelerate the healing process?

The answer to that is yes. Physiotherapy involves a bunch of techniques that promote muscle repair. Ice therapy, for instance, helps in reducing the swelling caused by an injury. Likewise, sports massages conducted as part of physiotherapy improve circulation and nourish the injured muscles and tissues. Thus, the person receiving physiotherapy is likely to recover more quickly than they would’ve otherwise if this form of alternate medicine wasn’t included in the treatment plan.

Physiotherapy: Last Resort?

Many people often view physiotherapy as a “last ditch attempt to heal injury, but the truth is, it’s one of the most effective treatment methods if sought on time. In fact, early intervention can significantly speed up the recovery process and heal injuries more quickly.

In one study, it was observed that from a group of people with lower back pain (because of an injury or otherwise), those who received physiotherapy recovered much faster. Another study saw that individuals who received physiotherapy after two weeks of sustaining an injury recovered quicker than those who waited longer to seek physiotherapy. The former also required less medical services in the next couple of months as opposed to those who delayed their physiotherapy treatment.

Physiotherapy for Concussions

Musculoskeletal injuries aren’t the only thing physiotherapy can help people recover faster from. It’s also highly effective against concussions.

One study found that in the case of sports-related concussions, patients who received cervical spine physiotherapy alongside rehabilitation recovered quicker than those who only received vestibular rehabilitation. More than half of the individuals who participated in physiotherapy were medically cleared within eight weeks, whereas only a small percentage of those who only received rehabilitation were medically cleared at the same time.
