Other Physical Therapy Services
- Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is the use of electric current to block or reduce pain signals so the patient can continue with other types of treatment.
- Ultrasound therapy uses high-frequency sound waves to penetrate deep into tissue, vibrating and producing heat to reduce pain, decrease inflammation, increase joint flexibility, reduce swelling and improve the efficacy of TENS.
- Electrical stimulation uses an electric current to cause muscle contraction and activate nerves innervating extremities, a technique used to treat patients with muscle and neurological problems that helps to improve circulation, reduce pain, and to repair and increase muscle strength.
- Cold compresses (cold packs) are used to reduce muscle spasms and acute inflammation (48-72 hours following injury), and relieve pain and swelling.
- Heat compresses (hot packs).
- Joint mobilization to reduce tension.
- Massage therapy.
- ROM exercise.
- Strengthening exercise.
- Gait training.
