 physiotherapy Newcastle techniques

 Some of the main techniques of physiotherapy are:
  • Therapeutic massage: the mobilization of soft tissue can help relax the muscles and reduce swelling in certain areas. It is an effective treatment to relieve the pain associated with sports injuries. Massage also promotes blood and lymphatic circulation and reduces inflammation of the tissues around the joints.
  • Electrical stimulation: the physiotherapy Newcastle delivers an electrical current to the affected area using electrodes attached to the skin to relieve pain. The electrodes shorten the muscles. This technique can be used with laser and ultrasound therapy.
  • Cryotherapy and thermotherapy: the application of heat or cold can be useful in the event of muscular stiffness. Thermotherapy includes the application of warm compresses and cryotherapy may include the application of ice packs or a massage with ice.
