Electrotherapy treatment for sports and other injuries’
Electrotherapy refers to the use of specialised machines which aim to reduce pain, improve muscle function and/or improve the healing of damaged soft tissue. At Modus Physiotherapy we have a number of electrotherapy machines including:
- Therapeutic Ultrasound
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
- Interferential therapy
- Muscle Stimulation
- Biofeedback Electromyography (EMG)
Electrotherapy modalities have short-term benefits that can assist with the earlier introduction of other longer lasting techniques such as exercise prescription.
All our therapists are trained in the effective use of each machine, and at times may loan a machine out to patients if their treatment plan requires it, free of charge. It’s all part of the ‘personal’ approach.
"Have a had great acupuncture, physio and sports massage from various different modus therapists- all very helpful with a great manner."
"I have been treated by 3 therapists at Modus now and can say all are of the highest quality."
"I can safely say the assessment and treatment I received at Modus is the best physio service I have ever had. Following a thorough assessment I was educated as to what was wrong, given some hands on treatment and exercises for home. Thank you so much."
"Both Adam & Philippa have looked after my 4 children over the past 6-years, and being rugby boys they have brought various challenges. Each time they have delivered excellent care and I feel safe knowing they are being cared for to the highest standards."
"I took my 12 year old daughter to Modus and was so relieved to know they had expertise in treating children. They picked up on her hip injury straight away and referred us to a specialist. This is in spite of having seen previous physio’s who had told us completely different things. Thank you."
