MORE INFO ABOUT PHYSICAL THERAPY.
Physical therapy involves the interaction between therapist, patients or clients, other health care professionals, families, care givers, and communities in a process where movement potential is assessed and diagnosed and goals are agreed upon. Physical therapy is performed by a therapist and sometimes services are provided by a physical therapist assistant (PTA) acting under their direction. Physical therapists and occupational therapists often work together in conjunction to provide treatment for patients.
PTs are healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions, illnesses, or injuries that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities as well as they would like in their daily lives.
Physical therapy has many specialties including sports, wound care, EMG, cardiopulmonary, geriatrics, neurologic, orthopaedic and pediatrics. PTs practice in many settings, such as outpatient clinics or offices, health and wellness clinics, rehabilitation hospitals facilities, skilled nursing facilities, extended care facilities, private homes, education and research centers, schools, hospices, industrial and this workplaces or other occupational environments, fitness centers and sports training facilities.
Education qualifications vary greatly by country. The span of education ranges from some countries having little formal education to others having doctoral degrees and post doctoral residencies and fellowships.
MORE INFO ON KT TAPE.
Elastic therapeutic tape is an elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive that is used for treating athletic injuries and a variety of physical disorders.
Elastic therapeutic tape is an elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive that is used for treating athletic injuries and a variety of physical disorders. Application is in three general shapes or techniques. An “I” shape is used for small or linear places, for example an I-shaped piece of tape will be applied to the teres minor or rhomboid minor. A “Y” shape is used for larger muscles, like the deltoid. The “X” shape is used for large and long muscles, such as the biceps femoris.
Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations the physical therapist can recruit the appropriate muscle fibers. Contracting the muscle via electrical stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscle. The physical therapist can change the current setting to allow for a forceful or gentle muscle contraction. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area that assists in healing.
Class III & IV Laser Therapy
FDA approved Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy or Phototherapy, has been widely used by health care professionals for over thirty-five years. In addition, this therapy has been the subject of numerous studies with over 3,500 scientific papers published worldwide.
Cold Laser Therapy is treatment that produces a beam of light in which high energies can be concentrated to a specific area. This laser light has unique physical properties, which no other ordinary light has. The unique properties of coherence and monochromaticity are the key to why laser light is so effective compared to other kinds of light in pain reduction and healing.
How it Works
Cold Laser Therapy can strengthen and heal damaged cells. Using photochemical processes, laser light inserts bio-photons into damaged cells. The cells begin to produce energy (ATP), which improves their function, assists their division, strengthens the body’s immune system, and causes the secretion of various hormones. The tissues are healed, and pain disappears. If damaged cells have died, the bio-photons help the division of neighboring cells, generating new tissues, and thus bring about healing.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
- Promotes healing in many conditions by penetrating the skin, increasing the ATP and activating enzymes in targeted cells.
- Activates a growth factor response within the cells and tissues as a result of increased ATP and protein synthesis.
- Improves cell proliferation.
- Provides pain relief as a result of increased endorphin release.
- Strengthens the immune system response via increasing levels of lymphocyte activity

WHAT TO EXPECT.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
Depending on the condition being treated your therapy may be administer through either a contact or non-contact hand piece. The contact hand piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand piece due to it’s ability to displace tissue through a laser-massage technique.
Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
