Against illness & disease, the most powerful defense mechanism in our body is our immune system, especially during this pandemic situation. During locPeople are taking lots of stress, not sleeping enough and in proper time, not having proper nutrition. Alone physiotherapy exercises can’t help to improve the immune system, some other factors like , less stress, adequate sleep and proper nutrition is also very important to boost our body’s immune system to function against the illness and disease.
let’s start to discuss about physiotherapy exercises and how it can help to improve our defense mechanism , our immune system.
According to Harvard Medical School research, just like a healthy diet, physiotherapy exercises can contribute to general good health and therefore to a healthy immune system. It may contribute even more directly by promoting good circulation, which allows the cells and substances of the immune system to move through the body freely and do their job efficiently.
According to them, best way to improve your immune system is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as these:

Physiotherapy Exercise regularly.

If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
Get adequate sleep.
Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
Try to minimize stress.
Regular Physiotherapy exercises is one of the best thing to improve your body’s defence mechanism. there is enough evidence supports that increasing levels of physical activities helps to increase seotonin and dopamine secretions and helps to reduce the secretion of cortisol levels, these natural secretions of our body have imense effect on our immune system. When we are in stress very badly , we feel sick also , this is due to these hormonal changes happens inside our body.
Our ‘happy hormones’ which naturally prodduring our bodies, during physiotherapy exercises also act as analgesics which helps to ease to reduce pain symtoms and work as a sedative too. Because of these ‘happy hormones’ if we do some physiotherapy simple exercises we feel relaxed and better.
It is my personal experiences , through my work , i have seen how physiotherapy exercises are extend well to improve people overall conditions including their immune system beyond helping to improve with injuries and other post surgery treatments. There is a misconception that physiotherapy only treats cases related to certain field like orthopedic and neurological conditions, etc. but actually physiotherapy is a much bigger field in fact benefits of physiotherapy is numerous. Using various techniques in physiotherapy and exercises , it improves the muscle, joints and bony strength , improves the muscle to pump better , to carry oxygen to circulate oxygen in better and efficient manner and promote cardiovascular system which helps in flushing microorganisms, other nociceptors foreign objects out of the lungs and body . Physiotherapy exercises helps to reduce inflammation which happens in case of infections and help to reduce fatigue due to inflammation.
According to the researchers from the University of Bath in the UK, regular moderate intensity physiotherapy exercise is beneficial for immunity. They said in the short term, exercise can help the immune system find and deal with pathogens and in the long term, regular physiotherapy exercises slows down changes that happen to immune system with aging process, therefore reducing the risk of infections.
Physiotherapy exercises increase blood circulation which allows immune system cells to move better throughout our body and work more effectively. Physiotherapy exercises can even shift in positive way the body’s response to an illness and lessen the time duration to recover from the illness. So, all these ways , physiotherapy as an exercise based treatment help to improve our immune system to help to keep our body protected from microorganisms .
