Dancing As A Form Of Exercise - Should You Go For It?

Life can be all fun and frolic as long as we are hale and healthy, but it can come to a standstill due to an injury or illness. The road to recovery can be cumbersome, but with dance-based physiotherapy, it need not be so!

Physiotherapists often encourage their patients and aid their recovery while enabling them to become independent as soon as possible after an injury or surgery. They seek the patient’s participation along with their own support, by creating awareness and empower them by educating them about their problems. They work with all age groups to help them in overcoming pain and disease.

Physiotherapy - What is it for?
With their expertise and knowledge, they can help in improving the various body systems including and not restricted to,

Dancing - A Form of Physio Exercise

  • Dancing is recognized as a form of exercise under physiotherapy. It comes under low-impact exertion, and patients do not feel strained when performing the art. It helps people in recuperating from injuries as it involves movement of the complete body. In fact, it has an impact on the entire body including the brain.
  • Dancing is also known to be advantageous for the patients because it boosts the flow of blood to the body and helps in their timely recovery. It also strengthens your bones and makes them healthy. Additionally, you can improve your fitness levels.
  • The health benefits of dancing also extend to combating anxiety and depression. It stimulates the release of the ‘feel-good’ hormones, also known as ‘endorphins’ and helps to uplift the mood. Further, you can also rely on dancing for gaining body balance. The benefits of social interaction can also be enjoyed through the practice. Moreover, you can dance to improve your body posture. And dancing is highly enjoyable and can be performed anywhere, at home or outdoors.

Words of Caution

  • When relying on dancing as a form of your physiotherapy treatment, you must take care to follow the instructions of your medical practitioner. They will consider your present physical condition and guide you on the correct dance techniques that are suited for your recovery. Moreover, if you experience pain as a result of dancing when recovering from disorders, do not delay in contacting the doctor at the earliest.
  • Physiotherapy can prove to be beneficial at any stage of our lives, and you can rely on it for not just for dealing with chronic pain, but as a preventive mechanism for dance or sport-related injuries as well. And it can be much more exciting and enjoyable when it is dance-based, especially, if you are a dance-loving soul.

Paralysis - How Physiotherapy Will Help In Treating It?

Paralysis - How Physiotherapy Will Help In Treating It?

Paralysis is characterized by loss of movement, muscle function, and sensation. The patient is unable to function normally in the aftermath of a paralysis attack. The disorder affects people in different ways. It is either partial or complete. It afflicts one or both sides of the body. It arises in one or several areas and can either be short-term (post a stroke) or long-term (due to spinal cord damage). There are different types of paralysis such as Monoplegia, Hemiplegia, Paraplegia, and Quadriplegia. Some symptoms that are associated with paralysis include loss of memory, loss of hearing, clumsiness, drooling, and changes in behavioural patterns.

Why Physiotherapy for Paralysis?

  • Physiotherapy is recommended for people affected by paralysis for many reasons. Physiotherapy helps relax the muscles and boosts the flow of blood within the body. Patients are advised to use braces, splints, orthosis, and canes by physiotherapists to facilitate movement in their condition. Wheelchairs are also advised so that the patient can move about a little if they have lost sensation in the lower limbs.
  • In case of brain injuries, the practice can reduce the swelling and promote healing.
  • Paralytics are also given counselling sessions for boosting their morale. They are encouraged, educated by their practitioners and can go a long way in improving their condition.
  • Physiotherapy exercises are also useful for restoring lost strength in the afflicted muscles, which, in turn, prevents deformity in the limbs. Physiotherapy exercises can restore sensation and subsequently the movement in the affected area.
  • The health problems of the patients are also addressed during physiotherapy. Also, the underlying causes of the disorder are treated, and this helps in restoring mobility for the patient.
  • Physiotherapy treatment helps the patient to adjust to daily life after suffering a stroke. The efforts are directed towards making them independent. As part of the treatment program, the patients are advised about various aspects, including exercises, surgical procedures, medicines and other self-care methods. Physiotherapy produces results over time and is not an immediate solution to the problem.

Paralysis – What type of diet should you go for?

  • Physiotherapists advise the patients suffering from paralysis to eat a nutritious diet. Intake of B-complex vitamins is very important, such as vitamin-B12 and niacin, the patients can improve the functioning of their nervous system.
  • Essential fats are also recommended due to their anti-inflammatory properties and ability to restore the health of the nervous system. Some food sources of these nutrients include walnuts, flaxseeds, beans, bananas, pumpkin seed oil, potatoes, and lentils.
  • It is important to note that physiotherapy practices can help people with paralysis in several ways. Most importantly, the victims receive encouragement and counseling from the physiotherapists who guide them towards a treatment option that can help restore normalcy in their lives.

Can Physiotherapy Treat Back Pain?

Can Physiotherapy Treat Back Pain?

Back pain, whether it be localised or radiating, can be an impediment to a person’s daily life. Usually, most cases of back pain resolve by themselves within a few weeks. However, if pain persists, the first course of action that a doctor will suggest before considering surgical options is physiotherapy. Physiotherapy has been proven to be very effective in treating back pain, if diagnosed correctly and treatment started early on.

A typical physiotherapy routine has the following goals which are usually achieved in phases –

  1. Relieving back pain and reducing inflammation
  2. Restoring normal range of motion
  3. Restoring full function
  4. Preventing recurrence

Physiotherapy usually combines passive treatments, which help to relax the muscles with active exercises designed to build strength and prevent the pain from coming back. When performed in the correct combination routinely, these treatments can provide substantial relief from back pain and help patients return to a pain-free, normal daily life.

Passive Treatments

  1. Hot and cold treatments – Physiotherapists usually use an alternative routine of hot compressions and cold packs on the affected areas to help increase blood flow to the area and reduce any inflammation. This also helps remove any toxins which may have accumulated and relieve muscle spasms.
  2. Deep tissue massage – The use of pressure to relieve the tension build up in the muscles helps ease muscle spasms and relax the whole back region. Massages also help provide relief to any strain or sprain which may be causing discomfort and pain.
  3. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) – In this treatment, variable but safe amounts of electric current is used to stimulate the muscles. This decreases spasms and also increases the production of endorphins, which are naturally produced by the body to reduce pain sensations.

Active Treatments

  1. In physiotherapy, active treatments involve exercises that will improve body flexibility, allow a greater range of motion, build strength in the back muscles and also improve core stability, endurance and posture.
  2. The exercise routine is usually designed by the physiotherapist to meet the needs of individual patients, depending on various factors such as the diagnosis, lifestyle, medical history, and overall health.
  3. Exercises generally start with simple stretching and gradually move on to more difficult exercises. These exercises include dynamic stabilisation exercises, core strengthening exercises and aerobic conditioning. The different exercises are meant for different purposes.
  4. The physiotherapist will also teach the patient back exercises and posture control which form a part of ‘self-treatment’ that is meant to prevent a recurrence of the pain.

Physiotherapy thus can be an excellent option for the treatment of back pain. It is a natural, cost-effective, safe and efficient way of relieving pain and regaining control of the body’s muscles without needing to undergo evasive surgical procedures.

Lower Back Pain - Can It Be Cured With Physiotherapy?

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT

Lower Back Pain - Can It Be Cured With Physiotherapy?

Lower back pains may underline a host of diseases, some of the most distinctive being the degeneration of lumbar disc and strain of back muscles. If left unattended, these acute durations of severe pain can lead to further complications, beyond the scope of both active and passive physical treatment regimes. Hence, it is always recommended to attend to these minuscule symptoms as soon as they are detected. 

How physiotherapy works wonders in lower back pains:

  1. Physiotherapy is recommended when lower back pains are frequent or stretch for days at a time. Most medical works of literature, which shower their unanimous support in favor of physiotherapy for back pain, make note that physiotherapy relieves pain, as well as improves the functions, which are most likely to be affected by this disorder. 
  2. Pain emanating, following a surgery, is recognized as one of the most significant aspects where benefits of physiotherapy are more visible. Generally, patients are advised to undergo physiotherapy sessions after surgical procedures irrespective of age and gender, unless the move is contraindicated in specific cases. 
  3. Muscular spasms and muscle shrinking is a highly familiar phenomenon observed in individuals who are relatively less active. Muscle shrinking can often be attributed to very low usage of certain muscles, while muscle spasm can occur when neurons at the affected muscles are irritated. Physiotherapy is observed as both the first line as well as the second line of the treatment regimen in such occurrences; a routine for gradual and slow stretching is recommended by physiotherapists involving the muscles of legs, hips, abdomen and lower back, based on their intensity of pain. 
  4. Advanced stages of a physiotherapy treatment regime upgrade the simple stretching exercises to more rigorous ones like specific stabilizing drills, exercises involving balancing machines and/or exercise balls. This aspect of physiotherapy caters to the secondary spine muscles of the human body. 
  5. The area of the body considered to be the core of lower back pain (lower back muscles and muscles of the abdomen) requires more than just stretching or exercises involving machines. Workout focused on these core areas are based on a complex set of exercises, which may have to be improvised such that the aforementioned muscles absorb the maximum shock. 
  6. In addition to these conventional exercises, which are based on applications of gravity, some centers a different environment for individuals who are unable to perform activities in normal conditions. The concept of aquatic pools addresses the issue, and makes exercising quite an easy feat for the physically challenged individuals.
