Physical Therapy is designed to examine, evaluate, and treat individuals who have conditions that cause pain and affect their ability to move freely. It does not only help people recover from pain, but it can also increase their mobility and help them to get back right on track. Aside from Physical Pain, it can also help with the mind. 

Physiotherapy can also help the pains of troubled emotions, and this has been confirmed by many Physiotherapists that this treatment is impacting both the physical and emotional health of patients. Many people are unaware of this fact and think that Physiotherapy is only about Physical activity, the movement of the body. They are also unaware of the benefits of Physiotherapy, and how it helps patients with their mental and emotional troubles.

The Link between Physiotherapy and Mental Health cannot be undermined, research has shown that the mind and the body should be treated as a unity as they will both collaborate to give the best result.

There are several benefits that Physiotherapy often has upon a person's mental health, and they include

   Increased Mood

Research shows that regular exercise affects mood and increases self-esteem. Physical Therapy can uplift the mood of individuals who struggle with illnesses that suppress emotions and dampen self-image. 

   Boost Self Confidence

Through Physiotherapy, many people are discovering that they are capable of much more than they ever dreamed possible. With this sense of Capability comes greater health.

   Reduce Depression

Physical activity can release chemicals called endorphins that trigger a positive feeling in the body. Endorphins also interact with the brain to decrease the perception of pain. This combination of positive feelings and pain reduction can help reduce depression.

   Improves Sleep

Sleep is an important part of mental health. When a person sleeps, the mind can rest and recharge. During sleep, the brain sorts out new information, emotions, and memories. Without proper sleep, stress levels and anxiety can increase because the brain has not been able to have enough time to recharge. Exercise can help the body fall asleep more quickly and experience a deeper and higher quality level of sleep, providing a better mental outlook on life.
