Pain and the resulting (chronic) abnormal biomechanical stress often leads to chronic pain and recurrent injury even after the initial tissue injury has healed.
Physiotherapy provides important stimuli in functional tissue regeneration and reconstruction to full strength. We integrate physiotherapy responsibly into local tissue regeneration treatment in the following ways:
- Supporting decongestion in local tissue
- Supporting supply and return systems
- Setting the body’s biosignals that arise in adaptation processes (such as in training)
- Coordinating protection mechanisms (proprioception control)
- Overcoming acquired abnormal biomechanical stress
- Treating local and general movement restrictions (contracture, imbalance, joint dysfunction)
Regenerative medicine places specific requirements on physiotherapy. Apart from the classical roles of treatments passively and actively supported by therapists and training based on proper exercises, self-awareness plays a central role in treatment. Self-awareness of your own strength and reaction to physical stress is critical to recovery.
Loss of performance and endurance can be expected in athletic training as well. The body can develop towards higher levels of performance during growth in the regeneration. Self-awareness of exhaustion in local tissues and the whole body as well as increased strength and endurance are comparable, and play a central role in athletic training and therapeutic regeneration processes. This adds to the physiotherapist’s role as a regeneration trainer.
