At Re-live Orthopaedic Physiotherapy &Wellness Clinic we provide individualized services ,focusing on your needs & goal.
We start with an initial assessment by a orthopaedician /physiotherapist & develop a treatment plan supporting your objectives in rehabilitation & recovery.
To guide you through to complete health we may include the following tools:
1. Short Wave Diathermy (SWD) (15 minutes)
Used at frequency of 27.12MHz with a wave length of 11m is a modality that provides as deep a form of heat as any available to the Physiotherapist. This is particularly valuable for lesions of deeply placed structures & muscles which cannot be easily reached through other forms of electrotherapy.eg: hip joint /shoulder joint.
2. Inter Ferential Therapy (IFT)- (15minutes)
This is a form of electrical treatment in which two medium frequency currents are used to produce a low frequency effect.
IFT produces interference(Treatment)in patient's tissues , applied to an area where treatment is required ,crossing two medium frequencies to create a beat frequency to achieve the desired effect.
3. Ultra Sound (10 minutes)
Ultrasound is a sound frequency well above the hearing limits. It includes a therapeutic frequency in the region of 1 Mhz or 3Mhz.
The frequency of ultrasound used in Physiotherapy is at therapeutic level, causing a vibratory micro massage like effect at the tissue level.
4. Moist Heat (20-25 minutes)
This consist of silicate gel enclosed in a cotton fabric container. This gel will absorb large quantities of water ,which when hot , provides a considerable store of heat energy. They are heated by being placed in a special tank of water warmed to 75 -80 degree centigrade. by an electric heater controlled by a thermostat.
5. Electrical Stimulation (20 minutes)
This treatment involves usage of two types of current.
Fardiac Currrent is a short duration interrupted direct current with a frequency of 50-100Hz and pulse duration 0.1-1ms. This type of current can produce contraction of muscles which have good nerve supply usually helping in re-education of muscle individual or as a group.
Galvanic Current is a direct current applied constantly at the area for the desired time set usually 10-20 mins.
6. Trans Cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)(15 minutes)
Tens is the application of a pulsed rectangular wave via surface electrode on the patient skin.
7. Cold Therapy (Cryotherapy) (20-30 minutes)
This treatment includes conduction of heat from skin to the ice, in order to melt it. Most common method of application of cold to the body is ice therapy. Often the skin temperature is reduced to 10 degree centigrade.
8. Paraffinwax Therapy (20 minutes)
This therapy includes applying conducted heat with the help of molten wax usually maintained at a temperature of 40-44 degree centigrade .This method of heating the tissue has the advantage of being the most convenient way of applying conducted heat to the extremities. As the wax solidifies on the part of the body where it is applied it releases its energy as latent heat which is then conducted into tissues thus helping in healing.
9. Traction: (15 minutes)
This includes application of mechanical force to the body in a way that separates the joint surfaces and elongates the surrounding soft tissues. Two types of traction
