Template:EnWiktionary Therapy, in the medical field also called treatment, is what people do to try to solve or care for a health problem, physical or mental. When a person is ill or injured, a doctor may make a medical diagnosis and then recommend a therapy to try to make the person well. The therapy can be, for example, medicines (drugs), surgery or a change of diet.

A person who does therapy as a job is called a therapist. There are many kinds of therapists.[1] for example:

Therapeutic effects

Medical treatments may have four results:

  • No effect at all.
  • A therapeutic effect is a good result.
  • An adverse effect is a bad result.
  • A side-effect is an unwanted effect from therapy. For example, taking medications as tablets or injections may cause many sorts of side-effects. Examples are headaches, nausea, rash, constipation, blurred vision and others. Radiotherapy can also cause side effects of nausea, rash on the skin, and vomiting, for example.
