Surely you have ever gone to a physiotherapy clinic to regain physical shape, if you have suffered breaks, contractures, sprains, etc. However, if you have never visited a physical therapist, it is important that you know that physical therapy is a discipline of health science. Many believe that it only serves to treat injuries, but it is not, it prevents future problems and ailments and educates in many healthy habits. Today we are going to talk a little about the quality of life and how physical therapy can improve it. Let us begin!

Physiotherapy clinics and the methods they carry out help us maintain, restore, or develop our functional abilities to the maximum. And therefore, this in turn will help us to increase our state of health and our quality of life.

Physiotherapists perform different treatments to keep patients active, and depending on each case, they carry out stretching, mobility, strength techniques, etc. with the right tools.

It should be clear to us that this discipline not only serves to treat injuries, we have to know that thanks to it we can restore our physical and psychological well-being. It is not only the “disease” that is treated but also the patient.

PHYSIOTHERAPEUTIC WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE.

  1. TREAT INJURIES:

That physiotherapy treats injuries is the clearest and most well-known part of this discipline. You usually go to physical therapy clinics when you suffer from an injury. Treat any type of ailment, from urinary incontinence to severe sciatica. It also benefits and repairs the physical deterioration caused by neuromuscular diseases. Whatever the pain, physiotherapy with its specialized techniques will help you effectively.

  1. SPEEDS UP RECOVERY:

When we have an injury, break, contracture, etc., what we want is to recover immediately. The fundamental thing for the patient is that, ease and speed in their rehabilitation. In this case, physiotherapy is a key treatment to carry it out with agility. Several studies confirm that thanks to physiotherapists, recovery time has been reduced in many pathologies and therefore we can say that it improves the quality of life.

Also today and more and more, thanks to the technologies that are being used, the time is reduced even more.

  1. PREVENTS INJURIES:

Physical therapy centers also help prevent injuries. They recognize the points and elements that could cause future injuries. A clear example of this is “bad posture” at work or in class. Although we may not realize it, these everyday postures can lead to injuries later. That is why it is better to prevent, and this is what physiotherapy takes care of.

 

Not only does it offer treatments once the problem is evident, but it detects and prevents injuries even if they are not yet “visible”, if not close.

The benefit of going to the physio before having a problem is that those small injuries that we do not notice do not lead to major pathologies. Avoid future pain, with a simple postural correction.

  1. PREVENTS THE EFFECTS OF AGING:

As a consequence of the years and aging, a series of normal physical and psychological changes take place at that age. For example, osteoarthritis produces a lot of pain and can even lead to dysfunctions.

In this case, physiotherapy reduces ailments and, most importantly, delays dysfunctions through therapeutic activities, increasing the quality of life.

  1. REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY:

As we already know, stress and anxiety are the order of the day today. The Western way of life and the lifestyle we lead leads to these kinds of problems. They go hand in hand with fatigue, headaches, or muscle aches. Physical therapy treats these problems and also helps you release serotonin and endorphin. These two hormones are associated with pleasure and therefore, they will make us feel more relaxed, and therefore better.

  1. IMPROVES FITNESS:

Thanks to physiotherapy, our muscles and joints will be ideally maintained within our lifestyle. As we know, all athletes and sportsmen have a personal physiotherapist or go to specialized centers, of course. But it is also advisable to go to the physio even if you are a more sedentary person, as it will help you stay in shape.

In conclusion, physiotherapy helps us to have a better quality of life and avoid certain types of problems or ailments. At Hope Love And Confidence Rehabilitation, our professionals guarantee quality recovery and prevention of ailments.

Remember that you can choose your rehabilitation center for traffic accidents to treat the consequences with the professional physiotherapists of your choice.

Hope Love And Confidence Rehabilitation is your rehabilitation center in Seville with more than 40 years of experience offering the best services.

WHAT TO DO IF I HAVE TO DO REHABILITATION FOR A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT?

Until not long ago, when having to go to rehabilitation for traffic accidents, the insurers were the ones who chose the rehabilitation center according to the agreement, not the affected person himself. This was due to the fact that the social security system does not cover the expenses to treat the aftermath of traffic accidents.

But today, the affected person can freely decide the physiotherapy center where they want to carry out the rehabilitation of the aftermath of the accident.

Typically, insurers cover car, driver, and occupant treatments. However, when there is no other car involved in the accident, the insurance will not cover health expenses, forcing the driver to pay these expenses on his own.

The option given by car insurance was to present the documents of the rehabilitation center and claim the costs.

AGREEMENT FOR THE REHABILITATION OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS

Due to the need this created, specialized units were created in health centers and hospitals.

WHAT DOES THIS AGREEMENT DEFEND?

The treatment centers for the aftermath of accidents determine that the establishments will treat all types of injuries caused by suffering an accident through a rehabilitating doctor and with therapeutic exercise.

This agreement includes free health care without penalty in the policy to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians or cyclists run over within the American territory.

WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT?

Through the private insurance companies that the driver contracts on a mandatory basis, affected patients will be free to choose a public or private healthcare center immediately.

To do this, you only have to provide the friendly accident report and indicate the insurance company, and you will be entitled to compensation and rehabilitative treatment.

EXCEPTIONS PRESENTED

When presenting at the center for the treatment of injuries, there are certain exceptions contemplated in the agreement such as:

  • The claim is not within the scope of the Agreement.
  • Without having made a friendly declaration of the accident.
  • Not being insured with the insurance company indicated.
  • It is not a traffic accident, but it is, for example, a sports injury.
  • It is a proven fraud.
  • The deadlines established in the agreement have been exceeded.

WHAT HEALTH CARE DOES THE INSURANCE INCLUDE

The insurance when a friendly part is filled out, includes the right to assistance for residents in Spain, within some clauses. Although this may vary according to the autonomous communities.

The following aspects are included:

  • Hospitalization and medical assistance.
  • Urgent transfer to the hospital.
  • Travel to the traffic accident rehabilitation center during the treatments.
  • Home care when the injured person cannot fend for himself during the cures and with the possibility of up to a maximum of 6 months.
  • Rental of auxiliary elements such as crutches or wheelchairs.
  • Acquisition and implantation of first orthopedic, optical, dental, or acoustic prostheses.
  • Rehabilitation to treat the injury suffered.
  • Prescription medication may be required.
  • Additional medical examinations and tests such as analyzes or x-rays to check for concurrent sequelae or functional sequelae.
  • Reconstructive plastic surgery for functional alterations.

CONSEQUENCES NOT TO DO REHABILITATION

Many people choose not to go to rehab after having a traffic accident because they believe it is not necessary, or they do not have injuries serious enough to be treated.

This is a serious health problem since if you do not do a rehabilitative treatment in time, the consequences will worsen, coming to accompany you throughout your life.
