Hot packs are useful in that they increase blood flow to the area of injury. They also increase cellular metabolic rate and increase the inflammatory response and edema. Hot packs are applied for about 10-15 minutes depending on the condition. Heat is most effective as a relaxing and palliative modality for patients that have tight muscles or hypermyotonicity.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation:
Electrical muscle stimulation, also known as EMS, help to decrease pain through the release of endogenous pain suppression and the stimulation of neurotransmitters. In addition, it also relaxes muscle spasms and stimulates healing of muscle strains and helps with tissue regeneration. In addition, it also prevents muscular atrophy which is described as a decrease in the size of the muscle.

Cold laser is a low level laser therapy that helps repair damaged cells. It penetrates deeply into the skin and restores abnormal cellular functions. This therapy is effective for scar tissues, arthritis and joint pain, fractures, frozen shoulder, and tendonitis. The light has the ability to penetrate deep into the tissues which will help decrease the pain much sooner.
Soft Tissue Therapy:
Soft Tissue therapy is manipulation and mobilization of muscle and connective tissues in the body to further accelerate the patient’s healing process.
