In the growing hair, the deepest part of the hair follicle expands to form a cap, known as the bulb of the hair, which almost completely surrounds some loose, vascular connective tissue, known as the papilla. The cells of the follicle around the papilla proliferate to form the various layers of the hair. In the resting hair follicle the bulb and papilla shrink, with the deepest part of the follicle being irregular in shape. Associated with each hair are one or more sebaceous glands, which lie in the angle between the slanting hair follicle and the skin surface with their ducts opening into the neck of the follicle.

APPLICATION The majority of physiotherapy techniques are applied either directly or indirectly via the patient's skin. Manual manipulations, such as massage manipulations, and thermal treatments both have an effect on the skin. The skin provides an extremely important barrier as it restricts the penetration of damaging electromagnetic radiations in the ultraviolet spectrum. All but the very longest ultraviolet wavelengths are absorbed by the skin, and if sufficiently high levels of ultraviolet have been absorbed then the characteristic effects of erythema, thickening of the epidermis, increased pigmentation and finally peeling will all be seen.
