PHYSIOTHERAPY MODALITIES

These are physical therapy machines the doctors use to augment their treatments and speed up the healing of injuries.

Cold laser is used for Acute or Chronic soft tissue injuries. It uses light emitting diodes to create a photochemical energy. This energy repairs nerve inflammation, and muscle, tendon and ligament tears.

Ultrasound is a therapeutic treatment using high frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue injuries. It is used to relax muscle spasms, massage damaged tissues and reduce swelling.

Interferential Electro-Therapy is a therapeutic treatment to aid in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing. It is used to aid in reducing the swelling of soft tissues, ligament sprains, and muscle strains and spasms by increasing blood circulation and stimulating naturally occurring opiates in your body.

Cryotherapy is the term that describes the application of ice, cold towels, ice massage and compresses to reduce the temperature of tissues directly on or below the surface of the skin. It reduces swelling in pain-sensitive areas.

Superficial Heat: Hot packs, or warm moist towels, are used to help raise the temperature of soft tissues directly below the surface of the skin. It relaxes muscle tension, reduces joint stiffness and prepares tissues for rehabilitation.

Neck Traction: A computerized device decompresses the neck to help create a mild separation between vertebra. This aids in healing pinched nerves and herniated discs.

Lumber Decompression Traction: A mechanical table used to treat low back injuries by providing movement to the lumbar spine without the effects of gravity. This gives your muscles and joints a chance to relax and start healing.
