Electrotherapy

These treatment modalities are used to help facilitate soft tissue healing, reduce pain transmission to the brain and help to facilitate muscle activation. These are depending dependent on what treatment modality is being used (TENS, Ultrasound, EMS). The evidence for electrotherapy as a sole treatment for injury is inconclusive and this has been a discussion amongst health care professionals for some time now. It is our view that if it is felt to be appropriate for your condition electrotherapy should be used with rehabilitation therapy to restore normal musculoskeletal function.

The term electrotherapy is given to the uses of electronic devices used for therapeutic aids. There are a number of different devices used in a therapeutic setting which are normally called treatment modalities. These devices transmit energy to the tissues to effect physiological reactions such as: facilitate soft tissue healing, reduce pain transmission to the brain and help to facilitate muscle activation. Examples of the different treatment modalities are: Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), Ultrasound (US) and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation(TENs).Electrotherapy has a place in clinical practice when used appropriately with supporting evidence.
