Electrophysical Modalities

Types of mechanical, electrical or thermal treatment methods used to help to relieve pain, decrease swelling, improve circulation and reduce muscle spasms.

Extracorporeal Shockwave

ESWT is a non-invasive modality using shockwaves. It is used in the treatment of certain conditions, involving tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

  • Non-invasive

  • Quick pain relief

  • Stimulates blood circulation and collagen production

  • Highly effective in treating chronic conditions

  • Promotes restoration of tissue and joint mobility

  • Breaks up inflammatory tissue and releases trigger points


It can be used to treat conditions such as tennis elbow, painful shoulder, chronic tendinopathy, hip pain, shin pain, plantar fasciitis and many more.

Therapeutic Ultrasound Therapy

Therapeutic Ultrasound Therapy

A safe and comfortable device that transfers sound waves with frequencies greater that the human sound spectrum (above 20 kilohertz) into the targeted area. The energy that is transferred with the sound waves can be used to treat affected muscles or other tissues to help with relieving pain, swelling and speed up the recovery process

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low voltage electrical current to provide pain relief.

Pads are attached directly to your skin. When the machine is switched on, small electrical impulses are delivered to the affected area of your body and you will feel tingling sensation. It is not painful and has no side effect.

  • Disc Injury
    A disc works almost like a shock absorber, but over time they can become worn or damaged. Symptoms of a disc-related injury might include a loss of mobility in the neck, numbness into your shoulder or arm, and weakness in your neck.
  • Stiff Neck
    Difficulty moving the neck sideway without turning the entire body. It may also be accompanied by a headache, neck pain and shoulder pain or arm pain. In most cases, pain and stiffness go away naturally within a week.
  • Whiplash
    Whiplash injury occurs when there is a sudden jolt to the head and neck in any accident that may cause a forceful back-and-forth motion. Motor vehicle accident is the most common cause behind the whiplash injury, but can also happen in sports or other trauma.
