Electrotherapy & Local Modalities

Electrotherapy and local modalities are methods of pain relief or inflammation reduction that provides short-term relief and stimulation, which allows you to continue moving and functioning as comfortably as possible until the cause is fixed!

Electrotherapy and local modalities have short-term benefits that can help with the earlier introduction of other long-lasting techniques such as exercise prescription. While many patients will feel the immediate benefits from electrotherapy, it is wise to think of these passive modalities similarly to pain-relieving or anti-inflammatory medications.


Electrotherapy Modalities include:

  • Ultrasound
  • Laser
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
  • Magnetic Field Therapy

For more information about what forms of electrotherapy or which local modalities are best for you and your condition, please seek the advice of our physiotherapist.
