Physiotherapy. Physiotherapist helping an elderly man to stand. He is holding onto a horizontal bar for support. Posture therapy aims to correct poor posture brought on by inactivity, or to help those who are not mobile to use their legs. Slouching in a chair for long periods can lead to poor posture, which can cause back and neck pain. In the case of an accident, or when the patient is disabled, exercising the muscles involved in walking and standing can help the patient regain their mobility. Physiotherapy is the physical treatment of disorders or injuries. Massage, heat therapy and ultrasound treatment are also used to maintain good health.
