Modalities feel awesome! This is where heat, ice, electrical stimulation and ultrasound come in. Each one has unique properties that promote healing, depending on the type of injury. Heat helps warm tissues up, relaxes the muscles and allows increased blood flow for healing. Ice helps limit the amount of swelling gets into the joint after an injury. Ultrasound can be used for a variety of reasons including warm up the tissues, but also can be used to increase blood flow for healing. Electrical stimulation can be used for pain, circulation, and swelling. Magic happens when we combine them to reach your goals!
