(Last Updated On: September 1, 2017)

If you’re a person who has to perform a lot of physical activity to get things done in a day, then you must probably know how pain in your body brings down your productivity. From sports persons to office workers, adults to children, body pain does not leave anyone out of its fold.

What is more worrying is how most adults, in order to get rid of pain quickly and easily, pop dozens of pills in a week, over consumption of which is very harmful to the body. Here is where physiotherapy comes to the rescue.

What Is Physiotherapy And Why Do You Need It

Physiotherapy is defined as the healing of an injury, disease, or deformity by physical methods such as heat treatment, massage, and exercise rather than by surgery or drugs.

While you complain that physiotherapy takes longer to perform and it would rather be easier to pop those beloved painkillers, you need to know why painkillers are harmful.

One side-effect of almost all medicine is that the more frequently you use them, the more your body starts to create a resistance towards the action of these medicines. This means, if you cure your body pain using one pill for a week, after the week, one pill won’t be enough. The more pills you take more your body resistance.
