At Physiotherapy Advanced Rehab we pride ourselves on having one of the most powerful deep tissue lasers. Laser therapy stimulates healing on a cellular level. Treatments are quick, painless, and safe, and benefit most patients with noticeable results in only a few sessions. Each treatment lasts only 5 to 10 minutes, enough time for the laser to comfortably penetrate tissue, resulting in efficient and speedy healing.
“Uses tiny sound waves to stimulate body tissues at a cellular level. It is widely used to promote healing of soft tissue injuries, decrease inflammation or increase circulation.”
3D or traditional IFC
“Uses electrical pulses applied through pads placed on the surface of the skin to help decrease pain and muscle spasm. Different settings can be used to address either acute or chronic pain.”
“Similar to IFC, TENS uses small electric currents to help control pain and muscle spasms. It can be used for chronic or acute pain, and is available as a small, portable unit for home use.”
“Uses electrical currents through pads applied to the skin to stimulate muscles and nerves to improve muscle strength following injury.”
Magnetic Bio-Stimulation Therapy
“Pulsed electromagnet therapy can help fuse broken bones, relieve post operative pain and swelling, and reduce chronic pain. The use of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has become increasingly popular here in North America in the last few years; however, it has been used extensively in Europe for decades. Magnetic-biostimulation is an alternative medicine that relieves pain, stimulates circulation, decreases swelling and fights infection. Bio-magnetic stimulation causes an exchange of ions between the inner and outer cell wall. It affects nerve cells which are electrical in nature and quiets them down without the use of medication. It redirects electrical impulses to the areas where you feel pain and there it provides relief and begins healing. This treatment is FDA approved.”
Traction or Spinal Decompression
Manual and mechanical traction has been utilized for years as a safe solution in the treatment of spinal conditions involving nerve root compression, acute muscular spasm and osteoarthritic discogenic conditions. Clinical benefits of Traction include decreased pain and muscle tone, increased range of motion and flexibility.
