People suffering from minor physical issues like a pulled muscle or a more serious condition with a substantial loss of mobility will find that physiotherapy sessions including exercise, massage therapy with cold or heat, and mild electrical stimulation that promotes recovery from injury can help.
Physiotherapy helps people recover from an injury, enables senior citizens to maintain a level of physical competence and assists the disabled and chronically ill in restoring the physical function that can allow them to live independently.
