Bes Physical Therapy For Inflammation In Mumbai
The body’s attempt at self-protection is inflammation. The purpose of any kind of inflammation is to remove harmful stimuli – including damaged cells, irritants or pathogens – and start the healing process.
When there is some harmful effect on any part of our body, there is a biological reaction that tries to remove it. Signs and symptoms of inflammation, especially acute inflammation, suggest that the body is trying to heal itself.
Infection and inflammation are two different things. An infection can cause inflammation in the body, because an infection is caused by a bacterium, virus, or fungus, while inflammation is a body reaction. Inflammatory process is an essential part of the body’s immune response.
