Decrease Swelling and Inflammation
There are times when modalities are needed to help reduce the pain and/or inflammation one is experiencing.
We offer ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation. Electrical muscle stimulation is a type of therapy that is similar to a mini massage. It increases the blood flow to the area of injury thus promoting the healing process. This therapy can be used with either moist heat or a cold pack, depending on the condition. Ultrasound produces sound waves that decrease swelling and inflammation. This type of therapy works well for sprain and strains.
