What are some unique physiotherapies?
Physiotherapy has come a long way towards understanding and strengthening the human body. Over the years, we’ve developed new methods to improve human physiology; many have been backed by science, and many discarded. However, we’ve managed to improve the ones that worked where they find their own place in different treatments that are available today.
Ranging from different cultures to different regions in the world, there are many modern and unique physiotherapies that we practice to give everyone the best for their bodies. Here are a few of them:
Dry Needling: Dry needling is a useful and effective technique using fine filament needles which are inserted into the fascia or muscle to correct imbalances within the tissue. Often, we target the active trigger points which elicit a twitch response and allow the muscle to release and relax. It can also be used to stimulate a weak or inactive muscle.
Aquatic Physiotherapy: Gaining popularity worldwide especially a
mong athletes, aquatic physiotherapy is used for many functions. It uses the buoyancy and resistance of water to decrease pain and swelling, increase function, strength and range of movement. It is helpful for orthopaedic, spinal and arthritic conditions as well as sports injuries, work related injuries and neurological conditions.
Shockwave Physiotherapy: Shockwave is a safe, non-invasive physiotherapy modality that effectively treats a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. It can be a great alternative to surgical intervention, and can often treat stubborn, recalcitrant conditions. It is done in conjunction with a suitable physiotherapy program, such as an exercise or loading program, and any manual therapy.
Massage Therapy: Massage therapy has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, if you need or want a massage, you can choose from about 80 massage therapy styles with a wide variety of pressures, movements, and techniques. These all involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes, even forearms, elbows, or feet are used. It offers benefits beyond simple relaxation: from fixing a backache to osteoarthritis and even depression.
