ENS (Trans Cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulations & Interferential Therapy) use modalities used to reduce pain and strengthen muscle fibres with the help of mild electrical stimulations. Reduces pain by preventing the pain signals entering the brain through pain gait theory IFT (Interferential Current) Used two medium frequency currents are used to interfere with each other to form a low frequency current, which helps to improve the muscle fiber strength and to reduce the pain.
Spinal & Peripheral Join Mobilizations (Mulligan Approach):
Like muscles the joints also may get tight or restricted, which may lead to pain and limited functions of the part. This type of conditions may require spinal or peripheral joint mobilizations. We use an internationally accepted spinal and peripheral joint mobilization called Mulligan Concept. The Principle of which is correction of positional fault in weight bearing position.
