Electrotherapy Treatment

Electrotherapy includes both ultrasound and interferential treatment. Each have their benefits and are useful adjuncts to osteopathy. At About Backs & Bones we do not use electrotherapy alone –instead we find it most effective when used within an osteopathic treatment (at no extra charge).

Ultrasound

This is most useful for:

  • Ligament injury
  • Tendon injuires
  • Joint capsule strain
  • Scar tissue

Acute muscle strains are treated more effectively with interferential treatment, whereas chronic muscle damage with scar tissue responds well to ultrasound.

Interferential

This is most useful for:

  • Pain relief
  • Muscle stimulation and relaxation to aid healing
  • Increase local blood flow to aid healing
  • Reduction in swelling

Muscles respond well to this treatment as well as pain that is taking a while to resolve.
