Electrotherapy encompasses a large variety of equipment, usages and settings. Electro therapy equipment is almost universally standard in most therapists offices including physiotherapists, chiropractors and in many professional sport team treatment centers.
The equipment is used to treat a wide variety of complaints including but not limited to:
Pain management – *Decreased inflammation and aberrant pain nociceptors transmission (pain signal transmission along nerves).(eg. Interferential current)
Treatment of neuromuscular dysfunction – Improvement of strength (eg. muscle stimulation), improvement of motor control, retards muscle atrophy,improves local blood flow.
Improves range of joint mobility – Helps to induce proper balance between agonistic and antagonistic muscle groups surrounding joints.
Tissue repair – Enhances microcirculation and protein synthesis leading to enhanced wound or injury healing. (eg. Microcurrent).Restores integrity of connective and dermal tissues.
This Richmond based Steveston Chiropactic office has been using this technique successfully for many years.
