How physiotherapy works

Unknown - 23:03
Back pain can be caused by a number of different things, including:
  • poor posture
  • inherited spinal deformity
  • bending or twisting awkwardly
  • overstretching
  • standing for long periods
  • lifting or carrying objects incorrectly 

A physiotherapist will look at your individual situation. As well as treating the problem, they may also suggest things you can do on a daily basis to help relieve pain and discomfort. They may also give you advice about how to prevent the injury re-occurring.
For example, if you have lower back pain, maintaining good posture and doing core stability exercises to strengthen your stomach and lower back muscles may help.

  • pain and stress relief
  • preparation for physical activity.
There are different types of massage, each designed to get the specific benefits above. The 4 main types of massage are:
  • Stroking – this is a gliding movement performed in any direction. Soothing stroking has slow, rhythmical movements designed to have a sedative affect. Stimulating stroking has brisk, invigorating strokes in any one direction designed to simulate.
  • Effleurage – this is a rhythmical, superficial or deep gliding movement in the direction of flow of veins and lymphatics. This helps to reduce swelling following injury, stretch scar tissue, relax muscles, and is used as a connecting massage stroke.
  • Petrissage – this is used to help reduce swelling following injury, mobilise scar tissue, reduce muscle spasm and help circulation. There are 4 types of these pressure techniques: Kneading – muscles and superficial tissues are compressed, squeezed and relaxed. The hands move rhythmically in a circular way.
    Picking up – muscles are lifted and squeezed in one or two hands.
    Wringing – lifting, squeezing and wringing of muscles.
    Skin rolling – two hands are used to hold and roll skin between fingers.
  • Frictions - this a cross (transverse) movement over the affected area (ligaments, tendons and muscles). This helps in the healing process or is used to break down scar tissue. Deep friction massage therapy is a more vigorous form of this.

Physiotherapy Sports

Physical therapists are closely involved in the care and well being of athletes, including recreational, semi-professional (paid) and professional (full-time employment) participants. This area of practice encompasses athletic injury management under 5 main categories:
1. Acute care – assessment and diagnosis of an initial injury;
2. Treatment – application of specialist advice and techniques to encourage healing;
3. Rehabilitation – progressive management for full return to sport;
4. Prevention – identification and address of the deficiencies known to directly result in, or act as precursors to injury, such as movement assessment
5. Education – sharing of specialist knowledge to individual athletes, teams or clubs to assist in the prevention or management of injury
At Jaipur Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation after sports injury is very specific according to the muscles and ligaments or other tissues injured. Depending on types of injury, there can be several areas of dysfunction and hence the condition has to be diagnosed and treated by a sports Physiotherapist specialized in this subject.
