Class 3B Laser
Laser treatment is a quick, pain-free treatment that is easy to apply and effective.
Laser therapy has proven to be effective at improving the healing of:
Soft tissue injuries
Tendons and ligaments
How does it work?
Different wavelengths and pulsing frequencies of light are used to stimulate the cells involved in the bodies own natural healing process. Also its ability to stimulate acupuncture points allows treatment of the full range of conditions that can be addresses by acupuncture.
Therapeutic ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to produce both thermal and non thermal effects in mainly soft tissue structures to improve healing and remodelling of injuries.
Ultrasound is particularly useful for:
Increasing contractility of muscle fibres
Decreasing inflammation and edema
Decreasing scar tissue formation
Decreasing pain and muscle spasm
Decreasing tendon and ligament inflammation
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) works by activating sensory and motor neurones to provide pain relief, increase blood flow, reduce muscle spasm and improve muscle functio.
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) is a non-invasive means of muscle rehabilitation after injury, surgery or disease. The device applies customised electrical stimulus to a specific muscle or muscle group to cause contraction .
NMES is useful for reducing muscle atrophy, restoring joint mobility and pain reduction. NMES is also effective in the process of post operative rehabilitation when trying to increase proprioception and neuromuscular activity.
