New opportunities

The old physiotherapists were very competent and careful doctors and women after 50 years of age were usually not prescribed physiotherapy, since earlier most of the methods were thermal.

But since then the situation has changed for the better. Thermal influences in modern physiotherapy apparatus occupy a very small proportion, and natural factors, such as dirt, have learned to use it in a cold form. The wider use of physiotherapy in women of mature age is also helped by modern diagnostic methods.

Now physiotherapists use both natural, natural, and apparatus physical factors. Natural factors include mineral water, mud, sand, estuaries.

Hardware methods are based on exposure to electric current, magnetic and electromagnetic fields, and light. Absorbed by tissues, this energy is used by the body to restore impaired functions.

Age difficulties

So, with what problems can a lady over 50 seek help from a physiotherapist? First of all, these are manifestations of climacteric syndrome - sudden mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, intermittent pain, pressure fluctuations. The main treatment option is medication. Supplementing it with physical factors allows you to reduce the drug load on the body, to reduce the dose of hormones, painkillers, antidepressants taken. And in some cases, physiotherapy can replace them altogether. For example, if a woman does not tolerate medications or they do not help her enough.

By the end of reproductive age, many women have gynecological operations behind their backs for uterine fibroids, endometriosis. And surgery is always a risk factor for the formation of adhesions. Adhesions quite often cause chronic pelvic pain, which prevents a woman from living fully. Pain syndrome is also "fed" by problems with the intestines and spine, which are not uncommon after 40 years. This is where physical factors are irreplaceable.

Another significant problem after 50 years in women who have given birth and operated on is a decrease in the tone of the muscles of the perineum and, as a result, prolapse and prolapse of the genitals, urinary incontinence, and impaired defecation. If the gynecologist does not see the indications for surgery, then the use of modern physical factors is an effective choice or an addition to drug therapy. Thus, the use of extracorporeal magnetic stimulation and biofeedback therapy can strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, teach the patient to "control" the muscles of the perineum.

Safe physiotherapy

A modern physio gynecoid logits, choosing a specific therapeutic non-drug complex, takes into account not only age-related gynecological women, but also her concomitant diseases, previous operations, data from examinations.

In elderly patients, thermal procedures are never used, so as not to provoke the development or progression of gynecological problems and oncology.

At the same time, the choice of hardware physical factors is quite large: galvanic and pulse currents are widely used, which have anesthetic, trophic, and sedative effects.

Low-frequency magnetotherapy is used in a variety of situations. It has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antihypertensive and anti-edema effects.

Hydrotherapy occupies a very important place in the treatment of elderly patients. Indifferent in temperature baths - iodine-bromine, coniferous, pearl - give a general soothing effect.

Dry carbon dioxide baths are very well tolerated. According to indications - baths with radon.

The therapeutic and prophylactic and health-improving complexes for mature women also include swimming, aerobics, water aerobics, physiotherapy exercises, psychotherapy. A big plus of these techniques is the patient's personal involvement in the treatment process. Motivation plus activity is a powerful force for success.
