Enhancing Healing, Reducing Pain
Modalities are specific treatments used to enhance healing, encourage circulation, and reduce pain, inflammation and muscle spasm. There are many to choose from and your therapist and doctor will determine which is best in your individual situation. RHC offers a variety of modalities including:
- Electrical Stimulation and Iontophoresis: Two different forms of treatment using electrical currents; one to stimulate tissues to relax and reduce muscle spasm and the other to deliver medication
- Ultrasound and Phonophoresis: Making use of sound waves to aid in healing and medication penetration
- Mechanical Traction: Stretching the spine and surrounding tissues via the use of a traction machine
- Hot Packs or Cold Packs: Used to increase or decrease circulation, relax muscles and and reduce swelling, depending upon the injury
