What are Modalities?

TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) – Electrical current applied through two or four electrodes. This stimulation is usually very comfortable for the patient and can provide immediate reduction of pain and muscle tension.

IFC (Interferential current) – Another form of electrical current, IFC provides deeper stimulation and can be utilized to provide longer term pain reduction. It can be used to reduce pain and/or swelling in both acute (ie; sprained ankle or knee) and sub-acute or chronic conditions (ie; ongoing back pain).

Ultrasound – Ultrasound is a sound wave that produces mechanical energy which is used to break down scar tissue and decrease pain. It can be an effective treatment for various tendinopathies and local inflammation.

Thermotherapy – Application of moist heat to improve blood circulation and relax soft tissues.

Cryotherapy – Application of ice packs to reduce swelling and control acute pain and inflammation.
