Services Details

ultrasound therapy

Any ultrasonic procedure that uses ultrasound for therapeutic benefit is termed as Ultrasound therapy. This procedures involves HIFU, lithotripsy, targeted ultrasound drug delivery, trans-dermal ultrasound drug delivery, etc. It sometimes uses focused ultrasound (FUS) or unfocused ultrasound.

Ultrasound may be used for the treatment of ligament sprains, muscle strains, tendonitis, joint inflammation, plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, facet irritation, impingement syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and scar tissue adhesion.

interferential therapy

The basic principle of Interferential Therapy (IFT) is to utilise the significant physiological effects of low frequency (<250pps) electrical stimulation of nerves without the associated painful and somewhat unpleasant side effects sometimes associated with low frequency stimulation. Recently, numerous ‘portable’ interferential devices have become easily available. Despite their size, they are perfectly capable of delivering ‘proper’ interferential therapy, though some have limited functionality and ability for the practitioner to ‘set’ all parameters. Most multifunction stimulators include all interferential modes, so the practitioner has several machine types to select from

fractured patients

A bone can be completely fractured or partially fractured in many ways (crosswise, lengthwise, in multiple pieces). The complexity of a fracture usually depends on the force with which the bone broke. If its breaking point has been minor, then the bone may crack rather than break all the way through. Whereas, if it broke with a major force such as in an accident, the bone may shatter. If the bone breaks in a way that it comes out through the skin, or a wound enters down to the broken bone, the fracture is called an “open” fracture. This kind of fracture is serious as because once the skin is broken, both the wound and the bone can get infected.

All kinds of treatment of broken bones follow one basic rule: the broken pieces must be put back into their position and should not be moved out of place until they are healed. In most of the cases, the doctor will put the broken parts of a bone back to their original position. Performing a surgery is sometimes required to cure a fracture. The kind of treatment needed depends on the seriousness of the break, whether it is “open” or “closed,” and the specific bone involved.

short wave diathermy

Diathermy is mostly used for muscle relaxation, and as a procedure of heating tissue electromagnetically or ultrasonically for therapeutic purposes in medicine. It is used in physical therapy and occupational therapy to deliver the right amount of heat directly to pathologic injury in the deeper tissues of the body.

Short wave diathermy machines use two condenser plates which are placed on either side of the body part that is to be treated. The second way of applying is by induction coils that are flexible and can be shaped into fitting the part of the body under treatment. As the high-frequency waves goes through the body tissues between the condensers or the coils, they are turned into heat. The degree of heat and depth of penetration depend in part on the absorptive and resistance properties of the tissues that the waves encounter.

tens

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS or TNS) involves the use of electric current, that is produced by a device to activate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. TENS basically covers the entire range of transcutaneously applied currents used for nerve activation, although the term is often used with a more restrictive intention, mainly to describe the kind of pulses produced by portable stimulators used to treat pain.

TENS devices are used as a non-invasive nerve stimulation intended to decrease both acute and chronic pain. They are also used in non-odontogenic orofacial pain relief. Moreover, TENS and ultra low frequency-TENS (ULF-TENS) are commonly employed in diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD).

muscle stimulator

Muscle stimulation or electric muscle stimulation uses electric impulses to evoke the muscle contraction. These stimulators are used to relieve pain, reduce spasms and edema, increase the activation of weak muscles and help in the healing process.

It is used as a tool for training, therapeutic, and cosmetic purposes. In medicine, this is used for rehabilitation purposes, for example in physical therapy it is used in the prevention of disused muscle atrophy which can take place after any musculoskeletal injuries, such as damage to bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.

speech therapy

Speech therapy is the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders, cognition, voice disorders, and swallowing disorders. Speech, language, and swallowing disorders result from a variety of causes, such as a stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, developmental delay, a cleft palate, cerebral palsy, or emotional issues.

Speech services usually begin with the screening of the communication and swallowing disorders. It continues with the examination and diagnosis, intervention and treatment, and provision counseling and other services for these disorders. The services are provided in the areas like cognitive aspects of communication, speech, language, swallowing or other upper aerodigestive functions such as infant feeding and aeromechanical events.

chest physiotherapy

Chest physiotherapy (CPT) is the treatment usually done by physiotherapists and respiratory therapists, by improving the breath by indirectly removing the mucus from the breathing passages of a patient. It is used to mobilize or loose secretions in the lungs and respiratory tract. This is especially helpful for patients who have large amount of secretions or ineffective cough. It is for those with Cystic fibrosis, Bronchiectasis, Lung abscess, Neuromuscular diseases and Pneumonia.

Chest physiotherapy consists of external mechanical measures, such as chest percussion, postural drainage, vibration, to improve accumulation and empty the airway for secretions, diaphragmatic breathing with pursed-lips, coughing and controlled coughing.

I.G

Galvanic vestibular stimulation is the process of sending specific electric messages to a nerve in the ear that maintains balance. There are two main groups of receptors in the vestibular system: the three semi-circular canals, and the two otolith organs (the utricle and the saccule). This technology has been investigated for both military and commercial purposes. It is being investigated for a variety of applications, including biomedical, pilot training, and entertainment.

kids

Yoga is answer as most children have become inactive and obsessed with TV, mobiles, gadgets. Children have high pressure on studies, school homework, tuition and hence spend very less time in games and out door activities. Most children suffer from weight loss or weight gain. Due to high competition nowadays in early age children get victim of pressure, stress and depression. Parents in urban areas have become busy and are not able to spend quality time with children. Family is going nuclear and hence children are getting lonely. Yoga program reduces kids’ aggressive behavior, social withdrawal, and hyperactivity.

Therapeutic Yoga

Therapeutic Yoga combines restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, breathwork, hands-on healing, and guided meditation techniques in such a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress.

Diet Councelling

A process by which a health professional with special training in nutrition helps people make healthy food choices and form healthy eating habits. … Also called nutritional counseling.
