Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses sound waves that are undetectable by the human ear. The sound waves are absorbed by various tissues in the body to produce a heating effect. Ultrasound is a deep heat that penetrates 2 – 5 cm deep. Benefits of ultrasound are muscle relaxation, pain reduction, increased flexibility of connective tissues, and accelerated healing.


TENS
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is a method of nerve stimulation designed to control pain. The units are small, light-weight and battery operated. TENS can be used at home as part of the treatment plan of care.


Traction
Traction uses a manual or mechanical pulling force that creates distraction. Traction can be used for extremity pain or tingling caused by bulging, herniated or protruding discs, nerve root impingement, hypomobility or a number of other conditions.
