Electrotherapy And Physiotherapy Singapore
Electrotherapy are common physiotherapy modalities that we use to
treat muscular, ligamental and bone disorders. Below we have listed some
of the main ones:
uses high frequency sound waves to treat soft tissues, muscles and
tendon injuries. The physiotherapist will adjust the wavelength and
frequency of the sound waves at the specific target area to achieve the
clinical effectiveness we want. Ultrasound increases blood flow and
circulation, as well as stimulating cell activity, which improves and
increases the healing process as well as providing relief from pain by
decreasing inflammation. At the tissue level, it breaks down scar
adhesions and tissue because of the sound waves, and this helps to
re-align tissue fibers in the proper and best alignment. Conditions that
results with scar adhesions and scar tissues, painful muscle spasms and
neurologically caused pain have been treated by ultrasound therapy with good results.
interferential therapy treatment is a technique that has been used for
more than 30 years. By using electrical current, the patients in our
physiotherapy clinic are provided with treatment for muscle spasms and
inflammation. Most of our patients report that they feel a gentle
current somewhat like the sensation of pins and needles. There are two
kinds: the portable interferential unit and the more clinical heavy-duty Chattanooga interferential unit
utilizing electrical current again, we can elicit or stimulate the
contraction and relaxation of muscles. This is useful and good to
rehabilitate muscles that are weak due to post-operation or post injury.
It also helps to restore balance in muscle, and is used after a stroke
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
helps with relieving pain by intercepting pain nerves and blocking pain
messages. This unit is very mobile (size is somewhat like an iPhone)
and small, and is a relatively good alternative to painkillers, as they
mask pain experience, allowing patients, whilst using it, to continue
functioning in their daily activities, going to work, or participating
in activities. TENS are usually used to manage long term pain e.g. low back pain and arthritis.
electrotherapy are used with our physiotherapy treatments, as and when
necessary. We do carry units for sale; if you decide to try one or buy
one please speak with our physiotherapists on correct use and training
as suitable for you.
