Electrotherapy is very useful in conditions where medications are not effective.. The common forms of electrotherapy that we use are as follows: TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation): In TENS electrotherapy, a small electrical device is used to deliver electrical impulses through the skin. conditions that can be treated through this are lower back pain, labour pain, and arthritis. Interferential Therapy: Also known as IFT, this is a deeper form of TENS electrotherapy and uses two high frequency currents. It is effective in pain relief, muscle stimulation, and blood circulation.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS): The Physiotherapist focuses on the muscle tissues instead of nerves. EMS is a specialized form where your motor neurons are stimulated to contract the muscles. This therapy is used to treat muscle atrophy, paralysis etc Ultrasound Therapy: The benefits of therapeutic ultrasound include the healing of muscles and ligaments and the healing process. It creates a healing effect on the body by improving blood circulation. The treatment stimulates the cells leading to reduced inflammation in the body.
