Physiotherapy facilitates the functional mobilization process of the joints. The enhanced metabolism at the joint along with relaxing of joint muscles assists in this mobilization process.
Simultaneous heat/cold treatment stimulates blood flow. Other forms of therapeutic treatment like electrotherapy and ultra-sound are also helpful in reducing inflammation.
A physiotherapist designs the therapeutic program and determines the necessity of supportive braces, etc.
Therapeutic supports are more effective when complimented by medicine or physiotherapy.
