The mechanism of interaction between natural physical factors and the holistic organism forms the basis of the general theory of physiotherapy


Optimal combination of drug therapy and physical factors increases the effectiveness of treatment and medical rehabilitation of patients. It is regrettable that search for methods of improvement of individual dosing of applied energies with approximation to the cellular level of dynamism (constant correction of parameters of applied physical factors during the whole period of treatment) and complex (in the presence of several diseases) treatment is conducted today obviously insufficiently. Perhaps this search is hampered by the current lack of a general theory of physiotherapy and imperfect classification of physical factors. In connection with this there appeared a necessity of development of principles and methods of comprehensive study of the action of physical methods in clinical conditions, and requirements for testing new apparatuses for physiotherapy increased sharply. The author of this direction was the outstanding scientist Vladimir Sergeyevich Ulashchik. In his opinion, creation of general theory of physiotherapy is one of the perspective tasks of scientific physiotherapy. It is known that since the end of XIX century the principles of neurovism and reflex theory have been the theoretical basis of domestic physiotherapy. Subsequently, to the reflex theory of the mechanism of healing action of the International Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Journal Case Report Open Access external environment (natural and preformed physical factors) the influence of humoral and endocrine changes was added, but still with the leading principle of neurovism. It should be noted that there have always been doubts that the reflexive theory can fully explain all causes and consequences of the interaction of external physical factors with the human body. On this basis, “permanent” problems remained unresolved: • common and specific in the action of physical factors; • the selectivity of their action; • correlation of nervous and humoral, local and general, functional and morphologic3al at single and course application of physiotherapeutic influence; • inability to determine “dose-effect”; • the nature of the organism’s primary reactions to environmental influences; • the direction of the processes that predetermine the final result of the interaction between external physical factors and the whole organism; • realization of all potential possibilities of obtaining the maximum desired positive clinical effect in physiotherapy. Thanks to the tremendous advances in quantum mechanics (optics), chemistry, biology, supramolecular chemistry, and fiber-optic physics, it became necessary to review the mechanism of action of a physical factor and the response of the whole body in order to diagnose, prevent, treat, and rehabilitate patients. Quantum therapy emerged before our era, when man began to consciously apply “natural factors” for therapeutic purposes with controlling “verbal support and explanation”. With the subsequent development of scientific, technical and humanitarian disciplines (mathematics, mechanics, physics, chemistry, biology, etc.) the philosophy of using natural factors for therapeutic purposes changed. In parallel, the culture of influence from outside on the holistic organism of any forces and means changed and improved, i.e. application of “natural factors” with therapeutic purpose acquired systemic character with subsequent emergence of new scientific discipline in medicine “physiotherapy”.Its fundamentality is that all Universe, Space and surrounding world consists of elementary particles (quanta), devoid of repetitions and existing in three-dimensional dimension.
