Our Tampa office incorporates various physical therapy modalities to assist you in your recovery. Modalities such as electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and ultrasound have been utilized by professions specializing in rehabilitation for many years. EMS, also known as interferential, provides a painless electrical current with the purpose to reduce pain and muscle spasms. The sensation one often describes is a tingling feeling with relief after the treatment. Ultrasound provides deep heat to promote tissue healing, reduce edema (swelling), soften scar tissue, reduce pain and decrease muscle spasms.
