ELECTROTHERAPIES

LASER

 

LASER is a form of photobiostimulation that accelerates regenerative processes in damaged cells.

Laser can be used as an effective form of pain relief, reduce trigger points, reduce muscle tightness and improve healing times.

Laser has the following effects:

  • Increases blood flow to treatment site

  • Increases oxygenated blood to treatment site

  • Increases lymphatic drainage away from treatment site

  • Improves healing times of tendon or ligament injuries

  • Improves wound healing time

  • Increases bone repair

  • Reduces inflammation

H-WAVE

H - WAVE is commonly used to relive pain and assist recovery from muscle strain or injury.

H - Wave treatment involves passing a low frequency electric current through a pair of electrodes.

These frequencies combine muscular and neurologic stimulation which provides deep penetration.

On a therapeutic mode of 2Hz H- Wave creates visible muscular contractions which increase the flow of oxygenated blood and stimulates lymphatic drainage. Consequently, this increases the removal of pain producing chemicals thus reducing pain.

BIOMAG

Pulsating magnetic fields induce small electric currents in the target tissue that are not visible to the eye. This results in an increase of cellular potentials which may have been lowered due to damage.

This increases nutrient flow into cells and allows cells to regain normal function.

 

The Biomag can be used for pain management, treat swellings and oedemas. The Biomag also helps in reducing hypertonicity (tightness) in muscles.

 

The Biomag is available to be loaned out to clients that require multiple Biomag treatments in the week(s) between treatments.
