Electrotherapy & Ultrasound
"I’d like to say a massive thank you for my Ultrasound therapy and leg massage for my injured ankle!
The service I received was amazing and very relaxed.
After my 90 minute appointment I left with some exercises to continue with which has definitely helped aswell and I was able to run and smash my PB at Bideford 10miler a week later!
Thank you so much Christine, I will definitely be recommending you x" Charlotte
I now offer a range of modalities which can be included within treatments at no extra cost!
These can help to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with long term conditions and injury. They also help to speed up recovery by increasing blood flow, reducing swelling and enhancing the body's natural response to heal, meaning faster recovery -getting you back to normal function and what you enjoy.
Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment modality that is used to provide deep heating to soft tissues in the body. These tissues include muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments. Deep heating tissues can increase the 'stretchiness' of muscles and tendons, improving range of movement, circulation and helping to decrease associated pain.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a method of pain relief involving the use of a mild electrical current. A TENS machine is a small, battery-operated device that has leads connected to sticky pads called electrodes. The pads attach directly to your skin. When the machine is switched on, small electrical impulses are delivered to the affected area of your body, which you feel as a tingling sensation.
The electrical impulses can reduce the pain signals going to the spinal cord and brain, which may help relieve pain and relax muscles. They may also stimulate the production of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers.
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) is used to facilitate strength training and re- education of muscles due to injury or long term conditions that cause reduced movement and muscle wastage.
