MUSCULAR THERAPY: SHOCKWAVE THERAPY, THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND
& GYRATORY VIBRATION WITH DEEP HEAT.
This therapeutic treatment combines most effective techniques to target
muscular tension & chronic injuries.
GYRATORY VIBRATION WITH DEEP HEAT.
This technique is delivered with the help of a machine which creates strong
and intense vibration in combination with deep heat. It provides the same full
range of benefits as a sports massage: *Relief of muscle pain and spasms;
*Mobilization of fluid in the tissues, *Prevention of muscle fatigue and stiffness;
*Retention of muscle tone*.
Thermal ultrasound causes skin and muscles to vibrate and heat up. Thermal ultrasound therapy is used to treat stretch pain, soft tissue pain, and other musculoskeletal issues.
Benefits of Ultrasound Physical Therapy: One of the therapeutic effects for which ultrasound has been used is in relation to tissue healing. It is suggested that the application of ultrasound to soft tissues will, amongst other things, speed the rate of healing & enhance the quality of the repair. The procedure is relaxing because of the heat sensation. Therapeutic ultrasound has no known harmful effects. The therapy will help alleviate body pain in the affected areas. Ultrasound is an effective way to treat muscular tension, joints and ligaments pain. The heating effect of the ultrasound helps to heal muscle pain and reduces chronic inflammation.
SHOCKWAVE THERAPY is an effective, non-invasive treatment of soft tissues, muscles, tendons and plantarfascia. Shockwave therapy is clinically proven to stimulate metabolic reactions. It activates the healing process by provoking an acute phase of healing and by stimulating enzymes involved in reducing pain, resulting in a high rate of success in treating chronic injuries and muscular tension.
The application of shock waves, known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is an evidence-based, effective treatment for plantarfascitis and most tendon conditions including achilles, hamstring, patellar, gluteal and tennis elbow tendinopathies.
The therapy targets soft tissues with specially calibrated shockwaves which creates tiny cavitation bubbles in the tissue which then burst and stimulate blood flow, stem cell activity and pain reducing enzymes in the treated area. The application of shockwaves gives pain relief after treatment as well as stimulating long-term tissue normalisation and regeneration.
Patients receiving shockwave therapy can expect:
A reduction of pain felt by nerve fibres;
Reduction of muscular tension;
An increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues;
Stimulation of the healing process triggered by stem cell activation.
