Relaxing and Healing Tissues
There are a variety of different treatment settings that use electrical currents to stimulate the tissues to relax, circulate and heal. Certain settings may be used to re-educate or contract the muscle, and others may be used to control pain either by overriding the body’s pain signal or by causing the release of your body’s own pain killers to control chronic pain.
Iontophoresis is a special way to deliver medication through the skin using an electrical current. Most often a cortisone based medication is used to decrease the inflammation and pain of a very localized injury to a tendon or ligament.
