Electrotherapy is used by physiotherapists to treat disorders relating to the muscles and/or bone. Some of the main methods are:
Ultrasound. This uses high frequency sound waves to treat injuries to muscles, tendons and other soft tissues. It can stimulate blood circulation and cell activity, accelerating the healing process and providing pain relief.
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). This works by providing pain relief by blocking pain messages to the brain
