Electrotherapy Treatments

Electrotherapy is used for relaxation of muscle spasms, increase of local blood circulation, muscle rehabilitation and electrical muscle stimulation, maintaining and increasing range of motion, management of chronic and intractable pain, post-traumatic acute pain, post surgical acute pain, immediate post-surgical stimulation of muscles to prevent venous thrombosis, wound healing and drug delivery.

1. Pain management:

• Improves range of joint movement

2. Treatment of neuromuscular dysfunction:

• Improvement of strength

• Improvement of motor control

• Improvement of local blood flow

3. Improves range of joint mobility :

• Induces repeated stretching of contracted, shortened soft tissues

4. Tissue repair :

• Enhances microcirculation and protein synthesis to heal wounds

• Restores integrity of connective and dermal tissues

5. Acute and chronic edema :

• Accelerates absorption rate

• Affects blood vessel permeability

• Increases mobility of proteins, blood cells and lymphatic flow

6. Peripheral blood flow :

• Induces arterial, venous and lymphatic flow

7. Iontophoresis :

• Delivery of pharmacological agents Electrotherapeutic equipments used for the treatment are Ultrasound,TENS/EMS.
