ICT (Interferential Current Therapy) is the most commonly used muscle stimulation therapy to address chronic pain resulting from traumatic injury or accident. ICT is used to help the muscles heal faster and shorten the recovery time to help alleviate pain.
Cold laser therapy is a type of laser therapy that helps in muscle recovery by shortening recovery time using low levels of light. It is called “cold laser therapy” because low light levels are not enough to generate heat in the body tissue.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a method used by physiotherapists to provide pain relief through symptomatic mechanisms by stimulating the sensory nerves that will result to either exciting the pain gate mechanism or the opioid system. The effectiviteness of this approach is subjective to the clinical pain that are being treated, when used well it works best for greater pain relief.
Muscle Stimulation therapy for muscle recovery sends signals to targeted muscles to make them contract. (Flexing your triceps is a form of muscle contraction.) By causing repeated muscle contractions, blood flow improves, helping repair injured muscles.
The goal of thermotherapy through the application of heat or cold (cryotherapie) modalities is to change the cutaneous, intra-articular, and the core temperature of the muscle with the aim of improving pain symptoms of some certain conditions. This method induces change in tissue temperature in a targeted region that has the goal of inducing a certain and favorable biological response.
Heat treatment is designed to increase the temperature of the muscle that will help in increasing the bloodflow that will result to vasodilation. Heat accelerates tissue healing because of increased bloodlfow in the muscles.
Cold treatment will decrease the bloodflow in the muscles causing vasoconstriction. Decreased metabolic rate due to cold treatment limits the extension of tissue injuring and it helps the tissue to survive cellular hypoxia due to increased blood flow, inflammation, conduction rate, and excitability.
Ultrasound is one form of physiotherapy treatment that involves a form of mechanical energy that produces vibrations in certain sound frequencies that helps in molecular vibration. Once the molecular vibration is initiated, the tissue will generate heat that will induce blood flow to the damaged muscles resulting to faster healing process.
