Program of treatment:


Faradic stimulation

to improve power of weak muscles

TENS application

for pain relief by causing a mild electrical stimulation to the neural system that enhances production of beta endorphin and encephalin (pain killer).

Ultrasound

for pain relief by increase extensibility of muscles, allow micro message effect , vasodilatation of the blood vessels and Increasing number of white blood cells that invade the microorganisms

Laser therapy

for pain relief through accelerate the inflammatory phase of the healing process, stimulating B endorphin secretion which is associated with inhibiting synthesis of  prostaglandin, decreased the conduction velocity  of the sensory nerve and stimulates the gate control to inhibit pain pathway

Electromagnetic field

to decrease pain and inflammation

Strengthening exercise

to improve power of weak muscles

Stretching exercise

to improve flexibility of shorted muscles

Hot / cold application

to decrease pain

Proprioceptive exercise

to regain joint receptor sensitivity.

Mobilization/ manipulation techniques

to improve R.O.M of joints and decrease pain.

Kinesio Tapping

to improve circulation, decrease muscle spasm and support joints.
