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.
