Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy is an umbrella term for a variety of modalities used in the treatment of a wide range of conditions. Electrotherapy works by using electrical impulses to help reduce pain, promote healing and repair damaged tissues. Electrotherapy has been used for a considerable amount of time in the treating of musculoskeletal conditions. recent studies suggests that electrotherapy does have an effect on the rate of wound healing if it is applied within a certain time frame within the repairing stage which our physiotherapists have great knowledge in.

The use of electrotherapy modalities are used in conjunction with other treatment such as exercises, resistant exercises, massage.

A full assessment by one of our specialist physiotherapist will be able to assess and diagnose present conditions. Electrotherapy will be used on their rational reasoning and if it appropriate to and if it is beneficial.
