Physiotherapy helps to deal with many health problems, whether with the aim of treatment, rehabilitation or easing difficulties (German)

Physiotherapy is a medical specialty that aims to help a person regain mobility and function when affected as a result of exposure to an injury, disease or disability, and it may also help reduce the risk of future injury or disease, according to the National Health Service in the United Kingdom .

 According to Dr. Kamel Zaarour, the first specialist in physical therapy for joints and spine at  Hamad Medical Corporation  in  Qatar , physiotherapy is a specialized art of therapy based on the evaluation of a person's condition, and is done through therapeutic tools.

Zaarour added in a previous episode of Al-Jazeera Clinic , that physiotherapy is a studied science based on a clear scientific academic study, and it is under the medical umbrella and comes after the doctor's medical diagnosis.

According to Zaarour, physical therapy differs from regular exercise in that physical therapy is for a person who suffers from a specific pain or problem and aims to help solve it, while  sport  is for a healthy person who does not suffer from problems or pain.

Physical therapy is used to help deal with many health problems, whether with the aim of treatment, rehabilitation or alleviating difficulties, such as:

  • Back pain.
  • Neck pain.
  • Shoulder pain.
  • Sports injuries .
  • Stroke movement problems .
  • The problems caused by multiple sclerosis.
  • Movement difficulties in Parkinson 's disease .
  • Rehabilitation after a heart attack .
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary.
  • Cystic fibrosis .

 Among the natural treatment methods:

  • Advice and education: where a physiotherapist provides advice to improve a person's daily life, such as the importance of exercising and maintaining a healthy weight, how to lift heavy loads without hurting the back, and how to sit at the desk.
  • Movement: where a physiotherapist teaches and trains a person to practice certain movements or exercises, with the aim of improving general health, for example, or strengthening certain muscles after injury or increasing mobility.
  • Exercises performed in warm, shallow water (hydrotherapy): They can help relax and support muscles and joints, while helping a person gradually improve their strength.
  • Providing tools that help a person move around, such as crutches or a walking stick.
  • Manual therapy: In which a physiotherapist uses his hands to massage body tissues, which can help relieve pain, improve blood circulation, improve the movement of parts of the body, and relax.
  • Acupuncture: Fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body.
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS): A small, battery-powered device is used to deliver electrical current to the affected area to relieve pain.
  • Ultrasound: It uses high-frequency sound waves to treat deep tissue injuries by stimulating blood circulation, to reduce pain and cramps and speed up healing.
