Physiotherapy & its place in the health system  

Physiotherapy as a clinical discipline means the treatment of the human body's diseases by physical factors such as electrical currents, hydrotherapy, therapeutic exercise & manual therapy. Physiotherapy is a non-drug treatment &due to its nature has been increased across the world. This therapy is used widely in many health problems including physiotherapy & counseling after heart surgery, orthopedics, gynecology, neurosurgery, pediatrics, skin burn…. the therapy aims to increase body & physical performance & the physiotherapist is considered the therapist. By identifying especial groups of individuals tries to prevent diseases & screen disabilities.

Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in improving the quality of life, accelerating the return to daily activities, increasing efficiency & rapid recovery of performance after surgery.

We can reach these objectives by having physiotherapy before surgery, providing necessary training, reducing the time of hospitalization & recovery after surgery. In order to achieve these goals, we have to take advantage of trained physiotherapist who are proficient in diseases as well as modern methods & advanced equipment's. Unfortunately some physicians refuse to send patients that have undergone surgery newly to physiotherapists because of the fear of acute pressure of treatment & high risk of injury. While the treatment in acute, sub-acute, & chronic illnesses are not the same. First the dysfunction & patients need along with his capabilities are exactly & accurately examined & determined by physiotherapists & then the therapies are prescribed for the patient considering his illness, condition,& without the slightest risk. Accordingly, in the initial phases, are mainly physiotherapy protocols in order to reduce the pain & inflammation & exercise therapy will be completely conservative. By reducing early symptoms the treatment protocols are changed & a progressive therapy is taken into account.
