Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy

Electrotherapies are useful additions to treatment sessions. They involve the application of energy into tissues for modulations of bodily mechanisms.

Here are a few I offer...

INDIBA emits radiofrequency to enhance the healing process of tissues. The therapy utilises the well-studied frequency of 448 kHz, scientifically proven to have significant positive outcomes.

It is used to treat pain, improve rehabilitation and for injury prevention. INDIBA can reach deep into tissues to target the sacroiliac (SI) joint, tendons and bone fractures. Whilst also enhancing performance through managing muscle pain and tension, promoting suppleness and relaxation.

Therapeutic Laser

Laser is a non-invasive and painless electrotherapy used through application of near infrared light into tissues, modulating tissue function. The conditions treatable are vast, but it is especially helpful for osteoarthritis, trigger point therapy and spinal cord healing.

Benefits include:

  •     Increases rate of tissue healing

  •     Reduces pain

  •     Reduces inflammation

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEME)

PEME is a mat that uses magnetic fields to evoke tissue and cellular changes.

Effects of PEME are:

  •     Reduces pain

  •     Reduces oedema

  •     Aids tissue healing

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

TENS is applied through electrodes to the skin, allowing non-invasive stimulation of nerves through electrical impulses. It is a portable device which can be used for all animals and lent out to the owner.

TENS can be used to:

  •     Decrease acute and chronic pain

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)

A method of electrical stimulation applied to the skin through electrodes to evoke muscle contractions for beneficial effects. Some benefits of NMES are:

  • Reduce effects of disuse

  • Increase muscle strength

  • Increase range of motion
