Physical Therapy: From Increasing Function To Curing Disabilities
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is the general law of pure science, like medical science, to ignore alternative forms of treatment as they are not considered all that effective. One such form of treatment was ignored for a while, but is now recognized widely throughout the world for its restorative properties; physical therapy is a form of treatment that encourages muscular mobility, increases functionality and helps individuals build strength or regain it. This article discusses how some people have become disillusioned with allopathic medication and are seeking out alternative ways and how physiotherapy is used to actually cure different disorders and problems related to movement.

Modern life has given us a multitude of illnesses; from depression to anxiety to cardiovascular disease to lung disease to various other disorders, you name it and we have it. It is true that some diseases change over time periods; for example, cholera was a disease prevalent at a certain time in history, was an epidemic and was then consequently wiped out. Similarly, World Health Organization has done several cleanup programs around the world regarding epidemic illnesses such as Tuberculosis and Polio. The reason why these diseases have been eradicated is that medical science has advanced enough to fight off certain bacteria from our systems completely. AIDS, a fatal autoimmune disease that scared everyone in the beginning, now has a pill to counteract it. In essence, medication and science has come a long way and constant research is being done.

There’s medicine and then there is alternate medicine. Many people also believe that modern medicine is just a way of curing symptoms of a certain illness and not really working on its cause. Hence, we keep coming back to medication every time we are ill; for flu, the common cold, fever, infections, headaches, etc. The claim is that these medicines have us hooked to them and are consequently causing an addiction and damaging our internal systems. For this reason, many doctors have started considering alternate medicine. One of the most interesting branches in that is physical therapy or physiotherapy. Although not really considered a form of alternate medicine, doctors vehemently recommend it for patients with certain physical disabilities, stressors, injuries etc.

Generally physiotherapy is used for individuals with injuries or post-surgical complications. The purpose of this is to increase mobility and enhance functionality by increasing blood flow/circulation and promoting a healthier life by introducing a daily set of exercises. Alternatively, physiotherapy is also great for individuals with certain neurodegenerative disorders that affect their movement, such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease. Basically, our muscles function better when we use them and most of the times, we don’t even know what muscles we have and which one of them are used or unused. Muscles are used to provide support in the body and stronger muscles provide better support. Physiotherapy Dubai is commonly available now for individuals hoping to deal with mobility issues.

Even though the roots of physical therapy date back to the time of Hippocrates, it has not always been a highly credited field in medicine, in the same way that pure science overlooks other kinds of equally important sciences. However, now that the benefits of physical therapy are known in treatment and rehabilitation, there are proper degree programs that qualify people to be professional physiotherapists and practice with a license. Physiotherapy in Dubai is ruled by such professionals who guarantee results. Doctors now seriously recommend physiotherapy as an alternative treatment and encourage mobility in patients with physical deformities. Physiotherapy is known to restore movement and activate muscles, hence; it is so popular with athletes and fitness trainers.
