The one day that celebrates physiotherapists and allows them to spread awareness about the importance of this therapy is World Physical Therapy Day. Let’s commemorate World Physical Therapy Day 2017 by knowing the relevance of physical therapy and why we need it:
1. Slow, steady and sustainable repair
Physical therapy is a slow healing process. Gradually the therapy helps to get your body movements on the right track. The physiotherapist focuses on a whole-person approach. It is not limited to giving relief to the affected part but, the broader view is to benefit your body as a whole. If done correctly, there is no therapy better than this.
The whole-body approach is being talked about here. Physiotherapists ensure a daily conduct of important exercises which provide you with relief for your body and not just the affected area. A hectic schedule or lack of time will never be an excuse here. If you practice the exercises recommended to you by your therapist, you are moving towards flexibility and good blood circulation for the body as a whole.
3. Recovery from stroke
After surviving a stroke, your body suffers from some level of function and immobility for some time. Physiotherapy helps you restore mobility and balance.
4. Managing diabetes and vascular conditions
Exercising regularly can help in controlling blood sugar levels. People with diabetes suffer from pain in feet and legs. A physiotherapist helps in educating the patient about proper foot care and for the prevention of further problems.
