LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) – Application of light of a specific wavelength to an injured area produces a photochemical effect that promotes tissue regeneration, reduces inflammation and relieves pain.
Ultrasound – Use of ultrasound waves create a thermo-mechanical effect, improving blood circulation, breaking scar tissue and promoting healing. It is used extensively in treatment of soft tissue injuries.
Interferential current (IFC) – Electrical current generates a vibration effect in soft tissues. It is especially effective in reducing swelling, inflammation and pain relief.
Electrical Muscle stimulator (EMS) – Electrical current stimulates nerves and muscle tissue through the skin, leading to a muscle contraction. It is used in strengthening or re-education of injured muscle.
Paraffin wax baths – Used for rheumatic and other arthritic problems in addition to acute hand, wrist and foot injuries.
Surface Biofeedback – Objectively measures muscle tension, reflecting muscle tone and strength. It is used extensively in patients with TMJ syndromes, low back pain and anterior knee pain.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Machine – Electrical impulses are delivered through the skin, interfering with the nerve transmission of pain and thereby decreasing brain perception of pain. It helps with the pain control and is used as a complimentary tool along with the other modalities and techniques.
Pulsed Magnetic therapy – Application of a magnetic field influences cell behavior, enhancing ion exchange, normalizing circulation, and increasing oxygen utilization of the cells. It useful in pain control, swelling management and improved healing of fractures.
