What Methods Are Used?
Sound waves passed through the injury site at either 1000000 or 3000000 times per second to promote healing.
The use of ice as a modality of treatment.
The use of various forms of heat to promote healing.
Individually designed programmes to promote healing, strength and flexibility.
The use of weights and other devices to promote strength and flexibility during and after injury.
All injuries should be treated with ice immediately after they occur but for no more than 10 minutes at a time. Heat should never be used in the first 48 hours as this can make swelling worse and more importantly increase internal bleeding if it is present.
Heat includes hot baths and showers. Ice must never be applied directly to the skin. It should always be wrapped in a clean tea towel or something similar, even if it is a packet of peas from the freezer as ice can burn the skin or cause the tissue to die if it is left in contact for to long.
