Photo and Electrotherapy Treatments What is it? Photo & Electrotherapy have a well established role within physiotherapy practice. Photo & Electrotherapy are mainly used in physiotherapy for relaxation of muscle spasms, increase of local blood circulation, maintaining and increasing range of motion, management of chronic and intractable pain, post-traumatic acute pain, post surgical acute pain,wound healing,reduced swelling ,anti-inflammatory effect. If you can't exercise or have difficulty with daily activities such as climbing stairs, dressing, shopping caused by: -Injury -Joint Pain  -Sore Muscles then Photo & Electrotherapy is the best option for you to start with physiotherapy treatments. How Does It Work? A small electrical device delivers electrical impulses across the skin. The device is connected by wires to sticky pad electrodes,which are placed on the skin in the area of the pain. This allows a small, low-intensity electric charge to be passed across the area.Electrotherapy uses electrical signals to interfere with the transmission of neural pain signals into the brain. It effectively slows down or distracts the message from the nerve to the brain. From a physiotherapy point of view, affecting one’s ‘Pain Gate’, whether in an acute or chronic pain episode, is crucial area of treatment and electrotherapy is a very useful resource where conventional medicines are not as affective. Electrotherapy can also involve the use of this electric current to speed tissue healing where tissue damage has also occurred. At LUMINA PHYSIOTHERAPY TRALEE we use electrotherapy and rehabilitation to effectively relieve pain and restore function. Ultrasound therapy is a treatment modality we use to speed up healing in various muscle and tissue injuries.  It involves applying a probe directly to the skin allowing ultrasonic waves to access injured tissues such as ligament, tendon, fascia, joint capsule and scar tissue.  At LUMINA PHYSIOTHERAPY TRALEE we use Ultrasounds to promote healing and enhance the quality of repair in injured tissues.  We use ultrasound effectively with ankle/knee/shoulder ligament injuries, tennis/golfer’s elbow and tenosynovitis of the wrist.
