APY DO FOR YOU?
ULTRASOUND THERAPY While many people are familiar with the diagnostic capability of ultrasound, few have had experience with therapeutic ultrasound. Two types are primarily used in physical therapy - continuous ultrasound and pulsed ultrasound. Continuous, or thermal ultrasound heats the tissue it targets while pulsed, or nonthermal ultrasound, has been shown to accelerate healing on a cellular level. Beyond whether the sonic waves are continuous or pulsed, an ultrasound’s intensity, wave length and frequency can be adjusted to treat soft tissue injuries, bone fractures, ulcers, incisions, or tendon injuries. ELECTRICAL STIMULATION Also known as E-Stim, electrical stimulation is commonly used in physical therapy for pain relief and wound healing. Electrodes are placed on the body and an electrical current is run between them, forcing the muscle below to contract. This contraction can have one or more effects. It can strengthen a muscle that has atrophied, stop a muscle spasm, promote healing, reduce swelling, or enhance the effectiveness of medications.
Electrical Stimulation has also been shown to aid in wound healing, depending on where the electrodes are placed and how they are spaced. It is important to remember that no two people’s physical therapy experiences will be the same since no two people’s goals, commitment, pain and fitness levels, and needs are the same. Your physical therapist will create customized goals, therapeutic exercises and series of modalities that will address your individual needs.
