Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy

 

Physiotherapy, or modality, is a form of rehabilitation concerned with the restoration of function and the prevention of disability following disease or injury. The therapeutic properties of heat, cold, electricity, ultraviolet radiation, or high-frequency sound waves are used to improve circulation, strengthen muscles, encourage return of motion, and train or retrain an individual to perform the activities of daily living.
 
Some of the physiotherapies/modalities used at this office include: ultrasound, interferential current, electrical muscle stimulation, intersegmental traction, and diathermy.
 
Great candidates for this form of treatment include those with swelling, muscle spasms/tightness, tissue discoloration, scar tissue development, chronic injuries, and acute trauma.
