Physical Therapy (PT), also known as Physiotherapy, is one of the allied health professions that, by using mechanical force and movements (bio-mechanics or or kinesiology), manual therapy, exercise therapy, and electrotherapy, remediates impairments and promotes mobility and function. physical therapy is used to improve a patient’s quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis and physical intervention. It is performed by Physical Therapists (known as Physiotherapists in many countries)

The first physical therapy research was published in the United States in March 1921 in “The PT Review.” In the same year, Mary McMillan organized the American Women’s Physical Therapeutic Association (now called the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

Electropathy / Electrotherapy

The treatment of disease by electricity.

          The use of electrical energy in the treatment of injury, relief of pain or other therapeutic applications to stimulate tissue  healing and restore function. Though the exact mechanism of action remains unclear, electrotherapy  is used in physiotherapy to enhance natural healing. Electrical stimulation has been shown to blocktransmission of pain and promote endorphin release. Different froms of electrotherapy, each producing different frequencies and stages. Wave forms, include  transcutaneous nerve stimulation(TENS), short wave diathermy and  interferential electrotherapy. The various forms are used,  as appropriate to treat injury to different tissue  types and at different.
          Electropathy In other words, it represents the electrotherapy treatment of different frequencies of electromagnetic fields and electric currents low voltage, high voltage electric field, and different frequencies and even microwaves. Electrotherapy can be made in the form of general and local effects. During the procedure, the patient’s body superimposed electrodes, if the procedure is carried out using current using electromagnetic fields exposure is provided by means of special equipment. A big plus of this therapy is that a huge variety of mood allows you to choose individual treatment for each patient. Treatment of various physiological abnormalities is well provided with the pulse action, such low-frequency pulse currents are able to exert a trophic effect on the tissue, mimic natural nerve impulses to normalize neuroendocrine regulation, stimulate the activity of some systems and organs. For all kinds of electrotherapy characterized by non-specific, general reactions: activation of compensatory and defensive abilities of the body, strengthening trophic tissue . Metabolism . circulatory . In addition to general reactions, depending on the features of each procedure, there are also specific factors.
Today, electrotherapy is an important place in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients thanks to modern advances in the development of medical technology.

          Electrotherapy is the use of electrical energy as a medical treatment. In medicine, the term electrotherapy can apply to a variety of treatments, including the use of electrical devices such as deep brain stimulators for neurological disease. The term has also been applied specifically to the use of electric current to speed wound healing. Additionally, the term “electrotherapy” or “electromagnetic therapy” has also been applied to a range of alternative medical devices and treatments. Electropathy and electrotherapy are semantically related. You can replace term “Electropathy” with “Electrotherapy”, this nouns are similar.
