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:
- 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.
