- TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is an electrical current applied through electrodes placed on or around the area of pain in the body. This stimulation provides immediate reduction of pain and muscle relaxation and patients find it quite comfortable. This treatment can typically last from 10-20 minutes.
- IFC (Interferential Current) is similar to TENS and used when deeper and stronger stimulation is needed. IFC is often combined with vacuum cupping therapy, which increases blood flow to tissues and results in faster pain relief.
- ULTRASOUND is a modality that uses sound waves (i.e. mechanical energy) to break down scar tissue, increase metabolism and decrease pain. It is an effective treatment for various tendinopathies and local inflammations.
