The Treatment Back to top

First of all you will be given a consultation and the physiotherapist will carry out some simple tests to find out what the problem is, if the pain is in the arm all the muscles in that area will be tested for strength and mobility. When the cause and the problem area have been diagnosed, the physiotherapist will recommend a course of treatment usually this consists of electrotherapy and strengthening exercises, depending on the type of injury you may have to visit the physiotherapist up to 3 times a week for several weeks or months after  the treatment is finished and you have made a full recovery you will not need to return.


Physiotherapists use electrotherapy to treat disorders relating to the muscles and/or bone

Some of the main electrotherapy methods are listed below:

  • Shortwave diathermy - produces an electromagnetic field which generates heat within tissues. This helps healing, reduces swelling and offers pain relief. It is useful for treating soft tissue injuries, slow healing wounds, sinusitis and conditions affecting the pelvic area.

  • Ultrasound - involves using high frequency sound waves to treat injuries to muscles, tendons and other soft tissues. It is thought to stimulate blood circulation and cell activity, accelerating the healing process and providing pain relief.

  • Laser - is used to produce a concentrated beam of light radiation. Treatment stimulates tissue healing and reduces pain, inflammation and swelling. It is often used for skin conditions and soft tissue injuries and to heal open wounds.

  • TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) - produces pain relief by blocking pain messages to the brain.
