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!
