Physiotherapy Services at Svastha Hospital
Electrotherapy uses electrical signals to interfere with the transmission of neural pain signals into the brain.it effectively slows down or distracts the message from the nerve to the brain.it can also speeds up the tissue healing where tissue damage has occurred.it can be given in two forms
- TENS(Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
- IFT(interferential therapy)
Ultrasound therapy is used to treat chronic pain and promoting tissue healing.ultrasound therapy causes mechanical vibrations from high frequency sound waves on skin and soft tissues via an aqueous medium which reduces inflammatory response.
Kinesio taping is a therapeutic taping technique which alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage,corrects movements patterns and improves posture.It increases muscle contractility,reduces muscle fatigue and increases range of motion.
