Electrotherapies

550

Electrical stimulation is commonly used for the relief of acute and chronic pain of various causes. Electrical stimulation preferentially stimulates what are called large diameter nerve fibers. When stimulated, these large diameter nerve fibers inhibit pain at the level of the spinal cord. We utilize electrical stimulation to help patients achieve more rapid pain relief. This allows us to progress toward more functional therapies such as manipulation and therapeutic exercises.

Ultrasound therapy is the therapeutic application of high frequency sound waves to body tissues. These high frequency sound waves produce local effects that include stimulating the tissue repair process. There are thermal (deep heat production), and non-thermal (micro-massage) mechanisms by which these effects are produced.
