diffusion therapy





diffusion therapy
Diffusion therapy is a form of physical therapy that helps to improve mobility and reduce pain. The goal of the therapy is to increase flexibility and movement of the body by using a combination of techniques such as heat, cold, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and water therapy. The therapist will typically use pressure, massage, and stretching to help the patient achieve their desired range of motion. An example of how diffusion therapy can help is if a patient has a rotator cuff injury. A therapist will use different techniques such as massage, heat, and ultrasound to help reduce swelling and increase the range of motion and flexibility of the shoulder. The results of diffusion therapy can vary from patient to patient, but on average it can reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and improve mobility and flexibility. According to one study, people who received diffusion therapy showed a statistically significant improvement in pain and movement. An analogy to explain diffusion therapy is to imagine a balloon filled with air. If the balloon is filled too much, the sides of the balloon will become rigid and it will be impossible to move. However, if the balloon is emptied just a little bit, the sides of the balloon become more flexible and can move much easier. Diffusion therapy works in a similar way by reducing pain and inflammation, making it easier for the body to move and become more flexible. Fun fact: Diffusion therapy has been used for centuries, dating back to ancient Greece.
