Why Are Therapeutic Procedures Needed?
Sometimes medicines alone are not enough for treating certain diseases. A combination of therapeutic procedures and medicines is required to fight against a lot of medical issues. Your doctor will decide if medicines are enough to treat your condition or you need to undergo some therapy as well. The professional will take a decision after various medical tests and screenings.
What Are the Different Types of Therapeutic Procedures?
There is not just one therapeutic procedure that is enough to treat all kinds of illnesses. Different therapeutic procedures are used to treat various diseases. Here is a list of the most common therapeutic procedures used to help cure illnesses.
Cancer is a disease during which the cells inside the body grow uncontrollably and cause harm to the body. This rapid multiplication of cells cannot be prevented using only medicines. The therapeutic procedure used to combat cancer is called radiation therapy or radiotherapy.
During this therapy, strong rays are aimed at tumors and cancerous cells present inside your body. These harmful rays kill cancer cells and stop their growth by damaging their DNA. Radiation therapy is continued for a couple of days until all the cancerous cells inside the patients' body die. There is an upper limit set on the amount of radiation your body can bear. Doctors make sure that this limit does not exceed during therapy.
Mental Therapeutic Procedures
People with mental illnesses are prescribed medicines as well as therapeutic procedures which help them recover quickly. These procedures are known as psychotherapy. A professional therapist talks to the patient and understands what is going on inside their psyche so that their mental condition can be improved.
Dehydration is a condition in which your body does not have enough water. Your body may lose it because of several reasons such as vomiting, diarrhea, excessive sweating or because you simply forgot to drink water. Fluid therapy is the process of introducing liquids inside a person's body, either orally or intravenously, to treat dehydration.
This therapeutic procedure is widely used by doctors to treat patients. Oxygen therapy is the process of providing oxygen to a person who has difficulty breathing, through oxygen masks and other related equipment. Doctors usually use this therapy to help a patient breathe when they are under the effect of anesthesia.
Intravenous therapy is the process of injecting medicines directly into the bloodstream of a patient to help them recover quickly from a disease. IV therapy is commonly used for administering antibiotics. This therapeutic procedure is also used as a preventative measure against various diseases in the form of vaccinations.
If you're suffering from a disease, your doctor will guide you about the possible therapeutic procedures that can help you recover quickly. Talk to your doctor today to know what their expert opinion is.
