Physiotherapy (from the Greek. physis — nature+ therapeia — treatment) is a specialized area of clinical medicine that studies the physiological and therapeutic action of natural and artificially created physical factors on the human body.
Why physical therapy helps:
Physical therapy is often an important supportive element in the treatment of various acute and chronic diseases. Physiotherapy treatments are easy to use, have almost no side effects, is indispensable in the period of rehabilitation, recovery from various diseases. Today in therapeutic and prophylactic purposes actively use the energy of electric current of different frequencies, magnetic fields, light, ultrasound, etc.
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!

Takasima of payment has been implemented in Australia, Sweden, Italy. Since 2003, the DRG system introduced in Germany.When applying this system the price of the service depends not on the number of patient-days of treatment and not the cost of supplies actually consumed and the manipulation of, and from which diagnostic group the patient belongs to – given his diagnosis, age, comorbidities and several other criteria.
