Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation
Physiotherapy is a branch of medicine since ancient times. The first information about physiotherapeutic treatment dates back to 3000 years ago, with the use of natural factors - mineral water, sunbathing, healing mud, lye and others. Since the middle of the last century, the use of natural factors has been combined with reformed ones. The reformed factors include: magnetic field, electrotherapy, ultrasound, laser therapy, light therapy and others. Physical treatment has a therapeutic effect in many areas - analgesic, antispasmodic, activation or normalization of blood and lymph circulation, improving the permeability of biological membranes, metabolism, nervous system function. The aim of the therapy is mainly to prevent and reduce pain, and it is also applied for preventive purposes. The courses of treatment are long (average 7-10 days) and include several procedures per day.
