Welcome to The Cape Hand Clinic - Electrotherapy Modalities e.g. Ultrasound

At our physiotherapy clinic in Cape Town, we are pleased to offer a range of advanced electrotherapy modalities, including Ultrasound. These modalities play a vital role in promoting healing, reducing pain, and enhancing recovery for our valued patients.

What is Electrotherapy?

Electrotherapy refers to the use of electrical energy as a therapeutic tool to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. It encompasses various modalities, such as Ultrasound, Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), and more. These modalities are safe, non-invasive, and highly effective in addressing a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Benefits of Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is a widely recognized electrotherapy modality that utilizes sound waves to deliver deep heating to targeted tissues. It promotes tissue relaxation, increases blood flow, and accelerates the healing process. Ultrasound is often used to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, improve tissue mobility, and promote tissue repair in conditions such as sports injuries, sprains, strains, and tendinitis.
