Electrotherapy is the treatment of the body by electrical means. Small electric currents are applied to the body using a variety of treatment methods - the result is therapeutic changes within the tissues of the body. The aim of electrotherapy is to stimulate the body and assist the body's natural healing process. By reducing inflammation and promoting blood flow through the site of injury, pain can be reduced and damaged cells can be prompted to heal.
Abbey Physiotherapy has a range of modern electrotherapy equipment in its treatment rooms which is used as part of your treatment programme. Each piece of equipment has its own particular strengths. Used singly or in combinations they optimise the body's rate of healing.
