The number of treatments sessions will vary depending on the problem and individual. You may need only a few visits or you may need weeks or months of care. After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
We recommend that you wear loose comfortable clothing. If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine, you may be asked to undress. We still assure to make you comfortable whatever will the situation be.
After an injury or surgery, your body initiates a biological response to try and remove or heal damaged cells. This response is called inflammation, which is a defense mechanism in the body. Pain and swelling are the uncomfortable symptoms of inflammation, but the good news is that they show that the body is trying to heal itself. Although inflammation is a good indicator of the start of the healing process, it can persist longer than needed and consequently cause more harm than benefit.
That’s where cold therapy comes into play. Applying ice, cold gel packs, a motorized cold therapy system or a motorized cold and compression system can help reduce inflammation, pain, stiffness and swelling and help you recover more quickly. These cold therapy systems have also been shown to reduce the need for narcotic pain medications that can be addictive.
You will definitely not get a cold. In fact, under such intense cold, the temperature of the body increases. The cryotherapy stimulates the immune system and makes you less susceptible to colds.
Oftentimes people go to therapy only two or three times a week. The responsibility for improvement falls on the individual, too. The stretching and strengthening exercises are really something that has to be done almost daily. You’re not going to get the progress or improvement you need just relying on going to your therapy visits, so you have to exercise at home. And, by the way, we can always tell if someone is being good about doing his or her home exercise program or not.
I think that everyone, to an extent, will experience a certain level of improvement. That’s if the patient is putting forth the effort that they can, and, of course, the therapy team is doing everything they can. But even though you’ve done everything you can, not everyone gets significantly better. That’s a conversation physical therapists may have with people.
Most people will not experience any pain during their assessment, but you might feel some discomfort. It’s important to tell your physiotherapist if and when anything feels uncomfortable. This will give them more insight into the problem and help them devise your treatment plan.
Laser therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, there are fewer side effects or risks, and it is quick and convenient — pain relief is often immediate. Studies have shown that laser therapy is equal to — or even more effective — than other forms of physical therapy
For many people, there is little or no sensation during treatment, and there is no pain. You may feel mild, soothing warmth. Laser treatment is relaxing — some people even fall asleep! On the other hand, it sometimes occurs that pain can increase or begin 6-24 hours after a treatment session. Pain may occur because the laser light begins the healing process. This type of pain is more likely to arise if the health problems being treated are chronic in nature. The pain usually subsides after a few days but can, in rare cases, last longer.
ESWT can effectively treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Complaints involving attachment points for tendons and ligaments in major joints such as the plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, shoulder, elbow and knee are common areas for ESWT treatment. Contact us to discuss your individual condition.
ESWT forces your body to create new tissue cells in the damaged area. Expect gradual healing to take place over days, weeks or months. Though not typical, some have mild soreness or bruising after treatment. Some people experience no more pain from day one. As it took time to create the injury, healing also takes time. Total healing of the area can take up to one year.
The best thing about ESWT is that unlike surgery, you avoid getting worse before getting better. You do not need to plan lengthy time off from work or your life for painful post-procedure recovery.
Sometimes the treatment is a bit painful, but most people can stand these few intense minutes without medication. If you are in pain during the treatment please notify your medical practitioner as there are some adjustments that can be made to reduce the discomfort, however, having some pain during the treatment illustrates that shockwaves are having a positive effect.
