How Physical Therapy Can Keep You Youthful How Physical Therapy Can Keep You Youthful

Believe it or not, the aging is reversible. We do not say that you can escape all the effects of the passage of time, but you can slow the aging process by keeping your body youthful. Physical therapy helps people stay fit throughout their lives. 

Stress Relief 

A prolonged situation of stress causes our body's reserves to gradually deplete, causing us to become more and more vulnerable to certain diseases. We can really define stress as a series of uncontrolled responses of our organism to any requirement, which occurs in both positive and negative situations. In these situations, the body acts by activating a series of emergency mechanisms fundamental to the survival, especially in hostile environments. 

Really stress is nothing more than a state of alarm, of constant tension that forces our body to give maximum and that eventually ends up exploding somewhere, usually in the form of some kind of illness or health problem. Physical therapy is one of the best treatments that we can follow in times of stress. Physiotherapists exclusively help their patients to relax, always trying to maintain a balance between mind and body. 

When a person suffers a period of psychological stress, physical problems such as muscular contractures, migraines, digestive problems, ulcers, etc. will appear in parallel. On the other hand, because of the important link between the two areas, when one of them is altered, it can also be helped from the other. That is, when a person has a mental disorder, it can be favored by a physical therapy. 

Better Sleep

All studies and research have shown that sleeping an average of eight hours a day is highly recommended for staying youthful, but what happens when we spend much more time sleeping? If you do not have an adequate sleep routine, you may be at risk of aging prematurely. 

Physical therapy can help prevent sleep disorders, through hydrotherapy, thermotherapy, electrotherapy or lymphatic drainage, thus constituting an "ideal" method of relaxation, especially when applied to the face, head, and neck. 

Improved Blood Circulation 

Physical therapy promotes proper blood circulation. Most of us do not use many muscles correctly. In addition, improper postures and tight clothing prevent optimal circulation of the blood. Physical therapy improves blood circulation in your body which brings many positive results including a glowing skin and better hair. 

When you suffer from poor circulation of blood, the first affects you notice in the legs. Thus, you begin to suffer from swelling and tired legs. Poor circulation occurs when the limbs are not able to properly pump the blood back to the heart, as they must make a great effort by acting against gravity. There are several treatments that your physiotherapist can perform to help you improve your blood circulation.

Combat Depression

Anxiety and depression are something that is becoming more common. However, there are multiple treatments and therapies to treat them. Physical therapy can be very helpful if you want to reduce the symptoms of these disorders. Physical therapy and massage help to curb depression. According to several studies, a professional massage, such as those offered at conveys a sense of comfort, help people to reduce depression and improve their ability to adapt to positive life changes. 

With seasonal changes, especially with the arrival of winter, it is common for some people to feel depressed or sad. Occasionally, these emotions can be aggravated by depression, especially in those people who have previously suffered a mental trauma or physical illness. How can we know if a person is depressed? The most characteristic symptoms are usually sadness, the desire to cry frequently, not to sleep or rest well, negative and repetitive thoughts, apathy, lack of enthusiasm and motivation, etc. Physical therapy can help you fight depression. 

Cardiovascular Health 

Physiotherapy exercises help you to stretch muscles and improve cardiovascular fitness along with relaxation techniques to relieve muscle tension and anxiety. Contrary to this it helps you to fight heart-related diseases.

Better Fitness

To stay young, you need to be in good shape and for that, you need to follow a fitness program. But routine workout and sports practices require a good physical conditioning. Injuries are undesirable and unpleasant affect in our lives. The injury can be accompanied by pain, discomfort and even the inability to continue training. Physiotherapy can be a great help to fight injuries and improving the mobility and fitness. 

Hormonal Balance

Hormones work together in a complex system of delicately interconnected relationships like a symphony in an orchestra, if a single instrument is out of tune it does not work, or imposes on others and can endanger the whole presentation. Hormones that are not finely balanced result in our body’s suboptimal health and therefore an impact on our quality of life, as well as showing a wide variety of symptoms and conditions.
