Benefits & Duration

Heat therapy warms up the tissues and readies for future exercises, Action similar to warming up exercises. 15-20 Minutes depending on condition

ULTRASONIC THERAPY

These are sound waves in greater frequencies i.e. 1 to 3 MHz .

Thermal (heat) effect

This is by mechanical vibration. It makes more oxygen available to tissues by increasing blood circulation. Greater circulation also means better removal of waste products and reduction in swelling.

Mechanical Effect

This is due to waveform of ultrasound, which causes compression/rarefaction in tissues causing pumping effect and better resolution of swelling. It also helps in reducing stiffness.

Useful For & Duration

Inflammation of Elbow Joint (Tennis elbow) ,Plantar fascitis(Heel pain),Shortening of Muscle or Ligament ,Inflammation of tendons(For e.g. Supraspinatus tendinitis) ,Ligament sprain(For e.g. Lateral Ligament sprain of ankle), Unhealed scars 10 Minutes.

INTERFERENTIAL THERAPY

(IFT) uses a mid frequency – current for treatment. It is applied by electrodes attached to stimulator.

Benefits & Duration

Pain relief by- increasing local blood circulation, by helping release of painkillers in brain. Reduction in swelling by muscle contraction followed by relaxation. Relaxation of tissues. Useful for individuals with Pain, Muscles spasm (pain and tightness), Swelling Muscle strain, also very useful in nerve irritations and inflammations.

Types

Modified Galvanic Current - In this treatment method the duration of current flow is long and continuous. Used in cases of severe nerve damage. Surged Faradic Current - Shorter duration and intermittent current flow. Used in cases of partial nerve damage or nerve compression. Useful for conditions like - All Nerve injuries (like Radial nerve Injury of the arm or hand),,Muscle weakness(To activate the muscle) , Facial nerve Injury

Benefits & Duration

Blocking the gate for pain sensation at brain level. Causing release of pain killers in brain. Increasing blood circulation. Giving massaging effect. 10 to 15 Minutes.

Cold Therapy

This is usually given by ice pack/ ice cube in plastic bag. It reduces pain, swelling, inflammation and tightness It is commonly used in early phases of injury. It is also used for over use syndromes. It's duration is for 5 to 10 minutes.
