We use electrical stimulation modes such as Interferential Therapy, neuro-muscular muscle stimulation and TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). After a manual therapy and/or exercise treatment this is applied with either heat or ice to reduce muscle spasm, swelling, and inflammation of injured tissue. It is a pleasant sensation and by reducing soft tissue tension and pain can help facilitate a good recovery.
1. T.E.N.S. (Transcutaneus Electrical Nerve Stimulation) –
this method primarily aims to provide a pain relief
2. Interferential therapy (IFT) –
interferential utilises two currents passed through the tissues simultaneously. IFT is used in the clinical practice for pain relief, muscle stimulation, increased local blood flow, reduction of oedema
3. Therapeutic Ultrasound (US) –
it is a form of mechanical vibration delivered to the tissue that accelerates speed the rate of healing and enhance the quality of the repair.
