Ultrasound

  • Increase in deep blood vessel circulation

  • Relaxing the muscle fibres tension

  • Soft tissue stiffness release

  • Relaxing the fascia and fibres

  • Perfusion and metabolic changes results in focal sustained contraction , muscle deconditioning
    pulse ultrasound therapy improves sustained muscle contraction by increasing the permeability of the cellmembrane

  • improves intracellular energy consumption

  • Increases angiogenesis in ischemic tissues repair

TENS -transcutaneous  electrical nerve stimulation

  • Tens - electrical based analgesia

  • Stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and brain stem nuclei

  • To produce endorphins

  • Inhibit arthritis related inflammation

IFT - Interferntial therapy

  • Medium frequency wave with low frequency modulated amplitude.

  • Promotes analgesia by blocking pain potentials in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord.

  • It has been proposed that synaptic plastic alterations in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord and free nerve endings, in conjunction with insufficient pain suppression are involved in pain threshold decrease, hyperalgesia and allodynia.

  • It blocks the nociceptive stimuli in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord which are the stimulation of abeta myelinatedfibers and the blockage of c amiyelinated nociceptiveafferents, as well as increase in the opioid release

Short Wave Diathermy

  • High frequency waves which penetrates  entire area to improve the blood circulation and reduce the pain

  • Enhancing the secretion of norphin and endorphin

  • Treating becomes a part of the electrical circuit and the heat is produced with in the body.

  • The heating of the tissues is by a high frequency alternative current of 27.12 mhz and the wave length of 11 meters.

Traction

The force or the pull generated from the unit to pull the neck upward and create tension on the tight and spasmodic muscles to be release the pain and stiffness and to reduce the pressure on the intervertebral disc. This has to be applied in caution with the disc prolepses cases to avoid further damage. An mri investigation to notice the disc involvement, since its contra indicated for disc heriniation with nerve root involvement.

Moist heat

A wet material silica pack maintained in a warm water container used for reducing pain and stiffness and to be applied prior to exercises or mobilisation.

Therapeutic neuro muscular stimulation.

An excellent therapy for nerve injuries and paralysis of peripheral nerves.
We select the type of current therapy needed for the nerve or the muscle depend upon the type and severity of the problem.

cryo therapy

Also called as ice therapy , its good for acute injuries and pain after the surgeries which helps to control the pain and spasm . We do the method of cryo cuff therapy where the ice is distributed evenly on the areas.
