Specialized Techniques Bring Pain Relief and Faster Healing

Physiotherapies are physical therapy modalities used to speed healing of injuries. They can be used to loosen tight muscles, break up and help scar tissue heal faster or prevent scar tissue and adhesions from forming, as well as improve vascularization and microcirculation to damaged or injured tissues. These types of therapies are often utilized by physical therapists and chiropractors trained in physical therapy.

Modalities used in physiotherapy may include electrical muscle stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, therapeutic laser, trigger point therapy, massage and massage techniques such as active release or myofascial release, as well as other soft tissue techniques, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) and other types of muscle-stretching techniques for joint mobilization.

Physiotherapies are often combined with chiropractic adjustments to help patients with acute pain, spasm and stubborn chronically tight muscles. Healing time for damaged or torn muscles or sprained ligaments and joints can be significantly improved with the addition of these types of modalities, which also add a level of comfort and relief to patient care.

Dr. Christine Hoch, owner of Fort Myers Chiropractic Studio, located at 8971 Daniels Center Dr., Ste. 304, in Fort Myers, offers physiotherapy. For more information, call 239-243-8735 or visit FortMyersChiroStudio.com.
