Treatments offered include:


  • Therapeutic Ultrasound: Ultrasonic therapy aimed to help promote recovery, especially in musculotendinous injuries
  • Interferential: Low-frequency electrical stimulation that can be very helpful for pain management
  • Additional Therapies: Cold laser therapy, diathermy, therapeutic/functional exercise

  • Muscle Energy Stretching: This stretching technique helps retrain hypertonic muscles
