Interestingly, a study published in the Journal of Spine in July 2003 showed that physiotherapy is five times better than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in terms of pain relief. Examples include Voltaren, Advil, and Ibuprofen. The study has proven that Physiotherapy not only does help assist pain relief but also improves overall health.
In addition to training and licensing, since physiotherapy uses natural methods to treat patients, they are not only safe but also non-invasive. Likewise, headaches are usually related to spinal misalignment and physiotherapy have achieved great success in helping headache patients finally get some relief. You will experience pain relief, better joint mobility (especially in the neck) and an increase in joint range of motion.
Did you know that the use of painkillers and even steroid injections has been extensively linked to lover and also kidney damage and such, these are never viable alternatives to a well-trained physio’s healing touch?
