It is the use of electrical energy as a medical treatment and used to assist pain reduction and the natural healing response via an increase in energy (electrical, sound, light, magnetic, temperature).
Ultrasonic therapy is the use of sound waves to treat medical problems, especially musculoskeletal problems like inflammation from injuries like sprains, tendinitis, bursitis. It has been a popular therapy for decades, its use so widespread that it almost defines physical therapy.
Phonophoresis is used in an effort to enhance the absorption of topically applied analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents through the therapeutic application of ultrasound.
Electrical Muscle Stimulator is a type of physical therapy modality used to accomplish various tasks like Low back pain, Post-surgical pain, For muscle weakness or poor motor control, Tendonitis and Bursitis
Iontophoresis is most often used to treat severe sweating, it may also be used to treat a variety of sports injuries. Adding anti-inflammatory medicines to the water during iontophoresis can ease heel pain and other soft-tissue injuries. The electrical current helps the skin easily absorb the medications.
TENS (2-250hz) Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is a method of pain relief involving the use of a mild electrical current which primarily aims to provide a degree of symptomatic pain relief by exciting sensory nerves and thereby stimulating.
IFT (with Russian Current) is a type of therapy which is very effective and is used in relieving pain by various physiotherapy clinics. This helps to accelerate the process of self healing and getting a patient's body free from pain and regain healthy physical conditions.
Intermittent traction is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on the spine and this is used to treat herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions of cervical and lumbar.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy or PEMF Therapy is one of the most exciting and useful discoveries in the history of complementary and alternative health-care. While the benefits of PEMF Therapy are many like better sleep, enhanced flexibility, enhanced motor coordination, improved strength and stamina, faster trauma recovery and mood elevation.
It is a stationary or mobile stainless-steel thermostatically controlled liquid heating device designed to heat bentonite-filled packs in water up to 160 degrees where the packs will be removed and wrapped in several layers of toweling and applied to the affected body area of a patient to relieve acute pain or relax certain muscle groups. Hydrocollators are often used by kinesiologists, sports trainers, physical therapists, and in rehab clinics and chiropractic offices.
Copntinous passive motion (CPM) devices are used during the first phase of rehabilitation following a soft tissue surgical procedure or trauma.
Long wave diathermy radiates much less than Shortwave Diathermy as Frequency of operation is less than 1MHZ and Power is below 75watts, whereas SWD has the frequency of 27.12Mhz and power of 250watts and above. There are many advantages of Longwave Diathermy, which is also called as CET technique.
Short wave diathermy uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to generate heat. It may be applied in pulsed or continuous energy waves. It has been used to treat pain from kidney stones, and pelvic inflammatory disease. It’s commonly used for conditions that cause pain and muscle spasms such as: sprains, strains, bursitis, tenosynovitis
