Tight muscles can restrict movement and potentially cause injury. Caulfield Physiotherapy stretching programs reduce the discomfort associated with tight muscles. Muscle stretching allows your body to perform in a more effective manner and reduce your risk of injury.

Your ligaments are the restraining bands that prevent joints from moving too far. Ligaments contain receptors that send signals to your brain, which allows you to know where your joint is in space.
Proprioception refers to the body’s ability to sense movement within joints and allows awareness of where your joints are in space.
A common example is when you sprain the outside ligament of your ankle, it heals with scar tissue. You can regain the range of movement of the joint, reduce the swelling and improve the strength. However, it is important to also re-train your joint awareness (proprioception) to prevent reoccurrence of the injury.

Electrotherapy is used as an adjunct to other physiotherapy treatments and may invlove:-
This technique uses the mechanical energy of sound waves, and can penetrate up to 5cm into your muscle tissues, whereas standard infrared therapy generally penetrates 2mm. Ultrasound increases blood circulation and the permeability of the cells, which in turn accelerates the healing process. Ultrasound is a vibration and does not produce electromagnetic radiation.
This treatment can be used for recent trauma or chronic injuries. The interference currents reduce your pain, swelling and the inflammatory products that irritate your tissues.
