WHAT DOES MECHANOTHERAPY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Mechanotherapy

Mechanotherapy is used as term for exercise prescription to promote healing and rehabilitation. This usage is consistent with the way 'electotherapy' refers to healing using electrical modalities such as ultrasound and 'pharmacotherapy' refers to treatment with pharmaceuticals. A reference/citation for this use of the term 'mechanotherapy' is http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/43/4/247.abstract. Mechanotherapy is a useful term for exercise which is prescribed for rehabilitation because tissue repair is driven by the physiological and well-recognized process of 'mechanotransduction'. Another, related use of the term Mechanotherapy also sometimes called Massotherapy, is the original term for therapeutic massage. It was developed as an independent branch of manual medicine in Sweden in the early 20th century. It quickly became popular in the U.S. and many chiropractic colleges in the U.S. in the first half of the 20th century also offered separate degree programs in mechanotherapy. Mechanotherapists received a Doctor of Mechanotherapy degree and were licensed to practice in many states and practiced in many more states without a license.
