Hence, physical therapy differs greatly from physiotherapy as it does not specially treat the spine. The main equipment used for physical therapy include ramps, exercise balls, resistance exercise bands, Nordic Track, treatment tables, ultrasound, Isokinetic devices, electrical muscle stimulation equipment, etc. The global physical therapy supplies market is likely to witness sustained growth in the next 10 years.
