How Physiotherapy Helps In Joint Complaint?

What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy helps to improve the strength of muscle, and joint which is affected by injury, diseases, or disability through movement, exercise, manual therapy, and advice. 

What are the most common joint complaints?
Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout are the most common complaint, and physiotherapy has a great role in it.

What are the benefits of physiotherapy in joint complaints?

  1. It reduces pain which in turn helps you reduce your intake of painkillers.
  2. In some cases, it prevents chances of surgery, and also increases the capacity of the joint to function for the longer period of time.
  3. It improves mobility, and movement of the joints.
  4. It avoids fall which is usually common in the joint complaint and improves the balance of the patients.

How physiotherapy help in the joint complaint?
Physiotherapy includes following methods to improve the joint complaints:

1. Local applications
Application of ice packs to soothe hot, swollen joints and application of heat packs to relax tense, tired muscles is usually done.

2. Splinting of joints
In cases of rheumatoid arthritis where joint complaints flare ups at that time splinting of the joints helps to the greater extent. Immobilization of the joint with splint helps to avoid further damage of soft tissues, and nerves.

3. Trans-cutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy
It helps by blocking pain messages from affected joint to the brain, and it alters the perception of pain. It is done by using a small machine with an electronic device which sends impulses to the nerve endings, and this is attached with the pads which are placed on the skin. This device causes a tingling sensation that gives soothing effects to the joint.

4. Gradual increasing daily exercises
Exercise should be started slowly, and it should increase slowly. This helps to strengthen the muscles and joints and increases fitness. Regular exercise also stimulates the production of endorphin which is one of the best pain-relieving hormones.

5. Massage therapy
Physiotherapy also includes massage therapy which helps to relax the muscles, helps to improve joint movement, and makes more comfortable movements.

6. Acupuncture
Sometimes, acupuncture is also used to stimulate the brain to produce endorphins.

7. Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy includes exercise in the warm water pool. It is mostly used in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The warm water in the pool increases circulation during exercise, and due to the buoyancy of water, the joint, and muscles can be exercised without any unnecessary pressure on it.

8. Phonophoresis
In which ultrasound is used to deliver certain medications such as topical steroids, painkillers to decrease the inflammation of joints.

9. Use of light therapy
In light therapy, infrared waves are used to raise body temperature which ultimately increases blood circulation. It gives fast pain relief and reduces inflammation.

2 Best Physiotherapy Exercises for Hip Flexibility

2 Best Physiotherapy Exercises for Hip Flexibility

I   Forward Lunge Forearm to Instep

It’s very important to keep the hips flexible and strong, as they take considerable stress from everyday activities like walking and climbing stairs. This lunge goes beyond the usual range of motion to open the hip joints and provide a deep stretch in the hips and thighs.

1. Standing tall with your feet shoulder width apart, step your left leg forward with a longer than normal stride. Land softly with weight evenly distributed over the heel and mid-foot,extending your right leg behind.

2.Move into a deep lunge by lowering your hips to the floor, bending your right knee, and placing your left hand on the floor for support.

3.Don’t allow your knee to cross over your ankle as you bend the front leg Feel the stretch through both Move your right fore- sides of the hips arm inside the left leg to stretch deeper. Keep your back straight and hold for 15 to 20 seconds, and then repeat on the opposite side.

4. For more strength and better balance,contract your glutes on both sides throughout this movement. As an added bonus, you’ll train your glutes to be engaged in other everyday movements.

II  Forward Lunge with Overhead Reach

Performing stretches that combine multiple muscle groups can be very effective.Not only does this allow you to multi-task as far as stretching is concerned,it’s also practical because most activities involve more than one major muscle group.

1.Stand with your back straight, with feet and legs aligned and hands on hips. Engage your core muscles as you move into the lunge Step forward 3 or 4 feet with your left leg. 

2.Keep a slight bend in your right knee back behind you.Slowly shift your weight on to the front foot and find a balance without wobbling.

3. Keeping your torso squared, raise your right arm overhead and drop your hips slightly lower to the floor until you feel the stretch throughout your body.Hold for 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat on the opposite side with your right leg in front, left leg behind, and left arm overhead.
