Physiotherapy is a treatment that involves using advanced electrical nerve stimulation therapy for quick pain relief from joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Ultrasound therapy may also be used to reduce inflammation and reduce swelling by dissolving scar tissue and adhesions for acute pain. Once you can tolerate the pain level it is important that you stretch out the tight muscles and do active exercises to strengthen the injured muscle area. Home exercises will be advised. Studies have shown great results treating musculoskeletal conditions by physiotherapy exercises with a combination of chiropractic care to restore physical function of the body and prevent from re-injuries.
