Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (Shockwave) uses an “abrupt, high amplitude pulse of mechanical energy, similar to soundwaves to treat a variety of conditions including, but not limited to: •Plantar Fascitis / Heel Pain / Heel Spur, •Elbow pain ex. tennis or golfer's elbow, •Shoulder pain ex. shoulder calification's, •Chronic neck and back pain, •Trigger Points, Sprain/Strains, Shin Splints, Knee Pain,•Whiplash (WAD I, WAD II, WAD III), •Bursitis, •TMJ, •Tennis Elbow, and more...
Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive, non surgical treatment for certain types of neck and lower back conditions. Spinal Decompression is a form of mechanical traction that works to slowly and gently stretch the spine, taking pressure off of compressed discs and vertebrae. Non-surgical spinal decompression is one of the most exciting therapies developed in many years because it demonstrates good statistical results for long term pain relief.
Laser therapy has been used for many years by physiotherapists for its reported anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects. Physiotherapists effectively use laser therapy for the treatment of a multitude of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. These include but are not limited to tendinopathy (eg. tennis elbow and achilles tendonitis), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, trigger points, thoracic pain, neck pain, jaw soreness, and wound healing.
The effect of ultrasound via an increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, promote bone fracture healing. The most common conditions treated with ultrasound include soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis (or tendinitis if you prefer), non-acute joint swelling and muscle spasm. Most muscle and ligament injuries can benefit from therapeutic ultrasound.
The physiological effects of Interferential Current Therapy include: an increase in localized blood flow which can improve healing by reducing swelling and as a result helps remove damaged tissue and bring nutrients necessary for healing to the injured area. The stimulation of local nerve cells that can have a pain reducing/anaesthetic effect.
Ice therapy (cryotherapy) is the use of ice in the treatment of acute and chronic injuries. Ice therapy can be used successfully to reduce swelling and pain in the following conditions: muscle spasm, trigger point pain, contusion (corked thigh), acute injuries and swelling including muscle strains and ligament sprains, tendinopathies.
