Helping You Heal Faster

Physiotherapists may use some electrotherapy as part of your treatment to help injured tissues heal faster. When an injury occurs, the body’s natural response is to increase blood flow to the area and it may become inflamed, swollen and painful. Electrotherapy can help reduce the inflammation and pain.

Stimulating the body’s own healing process

The application of ultrasound, interferential or TENS may be recommended by your physiotherapist. These are not painful to you and can help speed up the healing process and break down or prevent scar tissue build-up. If your injury is more chronic, these treatments will “jump start” your body into repairing itself.
