Any physical factor is a complex stimulus that evokes in the organism a complicated adaptation reaction, therefore, can affect the pathogenetic links of the disease and its core symptoms (pain, inflammation, etc.).
For example, the use of permanent continuous electric current of low voltage and small force with the purpose of treatment (galvanization) causes in the tissues of specific local biophysical processes that, in turn, changes the excitability of nerves and muscles, stimulates the regulatory function of the nervous system, reduces pain and tactile sensitivity, expands the small blood vessels. Thisway, this physiotherapeutic effect provides anti-inflammatory, analgesic, resolving actions. This example demonstrates that the physical impact on tissues and organs in its effect may approach other treatments, however, should not be considered physical impact, as an alternative to medical or surgical treatment – physiotherapy is used in a complex additional method of treatment!
