CLASS IV LASER

Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. As rehabilitation specialists know, the main goal of treatment for many when treating painful, debilitating conditions is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique to help make that goal a reality.

The high-power laser is applicable for treating​

  • Musculoskeletal diseases

  • Tendinopathy

  • Painful trigger points

  • Neuralgia


MATRIX RHYTHM

New and innovative medical device targeting physiotherapy, rehabilitation, athletic performance and clinical institutions. Matrix Therapy is a new and unique form of cell biological regulation therapy which is extremely effective on various kinds of acute and chronic pain. he treatments are pain-free and are easy both for the therapist to administer and the patients to receive. Most importantly, patients report fast relief of many types of conditions and joint issues including foot pain, backaches, leg and knee problems as well as muscle hardening and virtually all types of sports injuries. 
 




SHOCKWAVE

 

Shock Wave Therapy is a new high tech, non-invasive form of treatment which has been shown to be highly effective in treating chronic conditions that have not been cured with other kinds of treatment. Clinical research has shown that there is a 70-85% chance that Shockwave will improve your condition. Large clinical trails have shown that there are no series side effects or complications to this treatment.


ELECTROTHEARAPY

 

Electrotherapy machines are a popular modality used in physical therapy and rehabilitation. Electrotherapy (also known as electrical muscle stimulation or e-stim) uses an electrical machine that delivers electrical impulses to a patient’s body. This stimulation is done in order to promote and facilitate muscle healing and tissue regeneration. Not only is electrotherapy a popular modality in physical therapy, but can also be used by other rehabilitation practitioners because it has several numerous therapeutic benefits. 

  • Relaxation of muscle spasms
  • Prevention and cessation of muscular atrophy due to disuse
  • Improved local blood circulation and flow
  • Re-education of muscles using targeted stimulation
  • Preserve and improve range of motion
  • Management and reduction of pain (chronic, post-traumatic, and post-surgical acute)

ULTRASOUND

 

Therapeutic ultrasound is a modality that has been used by physiotherapists since the 1940s. Ultrasound is applied using the head of an ultrasound probe that is placed in direct contact with your skin via a transmission coupling gel. Therapeuticultrasound has been shown to cause increases in: healing rates


CUPPING THERAPY

Cupping therapy is a form of therapy where suction cups are placed around various parts of the body. The main principle behind cupping is that the suction created encourages blood and lymph flow to promote the healing of a broad range of medical ailments.

There are two main types of cupping: dry and wet. Dry cupping, currently practiced at The Physio Company, is when the therapy relies solely on the creation of suction. In dry cupping, there are two main ways that people are treated. Flash cupping is where the cups are placed and removed very quickly, without being moved around. The other technique is known by a few different names, such as sliding cupping or gliding cupping. This is where the cups are placed on the body and moved around without breaking contact with the skin. This aims to increase circulation and acts as a sort of massage.

DRY NEEDLING

With Dry Needling, the needles are used to target the trigger point of the problem muscle, this is known as the myofascial trigger point and is often described as a muscle ‘knot’ which contributes to muscle pain and dysfunction.

The needle is gently inserted into the skin directly at this point and often a local twitch response is experienced, this is a good sign and is what the Physiotherapist is looking for. It means the trigger point has been stimulated, jump starting the muscle and nerve supply and increasing the blood flow to the area which helps to relax the muscle.  When this local twitch response occurs, a brief painful response might be felt but it won’t last for more than a second.

After dry needling treatment, the area that was treated will feel much softer and relaxed and the person will feel looser
