PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES
Today we’ll go over some ways physical therapist can help treat your pain.
In general physical therapy is about promoting healing in your own body by promoting blood flow to the injured area. PTs do this in 1 of 3 ways:
1.) Manual skills (using their hands to perform various myofascial release techniques and mobilizations etc.)
2.) Modalities (Ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat, cold laser…)
3.) Therapeutic Exercises (strengthening, stretching, exercises improving balance and endurance etc.)
In this post we are going to demonstrate some of the common modalities used by physical therapist.
