Certain electrical currents reduce swelling and inflammation. Electrotherapy has been found to be beneficial when trying to relieve pain.
It also acts as a local anesthetic, strengthens muscle, and re-educates and interrupts the pain spasm cycle. For most people, the sensation on e-stim is gentle and relaxing.
When indicated, portable electrical stimulations are prescribed to the patient for treatment at home.
Low-level LASER Therapy (LLLT)
This therapy has been approved by the FDA for treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and plantar and our clinic in Huntsville uses laser therapy to treat similar issues. It has been shown to precipitate a complex set of physiological interactions at the cellular level, reducing acute inflammation and accelerating tissue healing. Professional and amateur sports teams have used LLLT for years to accelerate the healing of injuries and get the athletes back onto the field more quickly.
This treatment has been investigated and used clinically in Eastern Europe and Asia. LASER bio-stimulation is the basis for the current use of LASERs to treat joint, nerve, and soft tissue conditions.
Exercise and Rehabilitation Therapy
Exercise and rehabilitation is one of the most important aspects of recovering from an injury to the musculoskeletal system. During your treatment, our Huntsville physical therapists will assess you for muscle imbalances, weaknesses, and flexibility issues which may be contributing to your problems. Ross Clinic will instruct you in the proper exercises to perform at home or in a fitness facility. This helps decrease recurrence rates for injury, thus reducing the need for further medical treatment.
