ULTRA SOUND THERAPY
Ultra sound can be administered directly to your area of pain. Sound vibrations as fast as a million times per second penetrate the deep tissues in the body. These vibrations heat up helping to break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard accumulations in the tissues. The rise in temperature increases blood flow, relaxes muscle spasms, massages damaged tissue, and speed up the healing process. Deep heating can be used to increase the "stretchiness" of muscles and tendons that may be tight. Ultra sound enhances the body's natural healing ability.
Muscle stimulation is a proven form of pain relief accompanied by swelling an inflammation. A form of electrical currents are induced into the tissue a the site of injury. This small electrical current reduces swelling and safely strengthens muscles to reduce painful symptoms.
Interferential therapy is used for pain relief and reduces the swelling of soft tissue. Tiny amounts of electrical waves are induced in the tissue. This is a polarized electrical therapy. These waves interact below the surface of the skin. This causes a low frequency stimulation which prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers. Ligament sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond to this treatment because it reduces atrophy and increases blood circulation.
