TENS application is used for pain relief by causing a mild electrical stimulation to the neural system that enhances production of beta endorphin and encephalin (pain killer).
Ultrasound is used to relief pain by increase extensibility of tendon, allowing micro message effect, vasodilatation of the blood vessels and increasing number of white blood cells that invade the microorganisms
Laser therapy is used to relief pain through acceleration of 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 is used to decrease pain and inflammation
Strengthening exercise is used to improve power of weak muscles
Stretching exercise is used to improve flexibility of shorter muscles
Proprioceptive exercise is used to regain joint receptor sensitivity.
Gait training is a type of physical therapy. It can help improve your ability to stand, and help you gain independence in walking, even if you need an adaptive device.
