Ultrasound

Therapeutic Ultrasound uses a stream of compression waves that form an ultrasonic beam that has a therapeutic, micro-massage effect on tissues.  This sonic beam is transferred to the tissues through a transducer and coupling fluid.  The sound waves produce a deep heat and thereby helps reduce inflammation, muscle spasms and pain and increases the blood supply […]

Electrical stimulation is used against muscle atrophy and pain management. It can be used in several conditions such as post operation, arthritis or spondylosis and helps in increasing muscle strength. It can […]
