Laser

Laser therapy is a clinically-proven treatment modality for managing pain, inflammation and for promoting tissue-repair in the musculoskeletal system.

Some of the conditions treated with laser therapy are:

  • Cervical spondylosis
  • Neck pain
  • Disc bulge
  • Shoulder arthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Olecranon bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Wrist tendinopathy
  • Groin pain
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Lumbar spondylosis
  • Low back pain
  • Knee arthritis
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Knee bursitis
  • Ankle sprain
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Temporomandibular pain, etc

Instrument-assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) is a technique that helps locate and treat soft tissue dysfunction. It is performed with ergonomically-designed instruments that allow the clinician to locate the fascial restrictions and allows him/her to treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure.

IASTM is supplemented with exercises and additional treatments (modalities) to bring about full restoration.

IASTM is usually used to treat: 

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Neck pain
  • Plantar fascitis
  • Rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Tibialis posterior tendinitis
  • Heel pain/Achilles tendinitis
  • DeQuervain’s syndrome
  • Post-surgical and traumatic scars
  • Myofascial pain and restrictions
  • Musculoskeletal imbalances
  • Chronic joint swelling associated with sprains/strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Non-acute bursitis
  • Back pain
  • Trigger finger
  • Hip pain (replacements)
  • Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
  • Shin splints
  • Chronic ankle sprains
  • Scars (surgical, traumatic), etc

Electrotherapy

Using specialised devices designed to deliver customised levels of electrical stimulation to your body’s nerves, muscles, or tendons, trained physiotherapists can harness the power of electrotherapy to treat injuries, promote healing, and offer pain relief.

Jaya Physio Clinics is equipped with the most advanced electrotherapy equipment like:

  1. Interferential Therapy (IFT)
  2. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
  3. Combination therapy
  4. Therapeutic ultrasound
  5. EMG
  6. Electrical stimulation

Cryocompression

We all know that “ice” is the first choice of treatment after injury, as it helps in reducing pain and inflammation. When ice (“cryo”)  is given along with compression, it is even more effective in addressing acute swelling and pain; hence, referred to as “cryocompression”.

Cryocompression promotes vasoconstriction and reduces blood flow, reduces inflammation and edema (swelling), decreases muscle spasms and metabolic demand, and safely relieves pain without narcotics. It is used immediately after acute injury/surgery, and as required thereafter.

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a gentle manual therapy technique that assesses the relationship between the body’s organs (e.g. bladder, bowel, uterus, etc) and other structures, like muscles, fascia, ligaments and joints.

The organs in our body have a certain range of movement that is normal, just like our joints. They need to move within a normal range, so we can function well.

The movement of an organ can be restricted by surgical scars, adhesions, infection, illness, poor posture or traumatic injury. A restriction prevents the normal “gliding and sliding” action of the organ over other structures within the body, creating an area of fixation. Our body learns to accommodate by moving around this area of tension, and over time, this repeated movement leads to chronic irritation and inflammation causing musculoskeletal, neural and visceral dysfunction.

Visceral Manipulation has been effective in the treatment of:

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Fibroids and cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Dyspareunia
  • Infertility
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Bladder urgency/frequency
  • Bladder incontinence
  • Prostatitis
  • Urinary and sexual dysfunction associated with an enlarged prostate
  • Referred penile and testicular pain
  • Constipation and bloating
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • GERD, acid reflux
  • Chronic spinal dysfunction
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Joint pain
  • Post operative scar tissue
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Post traumatic stress disorder, etc.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is the use of thin monofilament needles inserted through the skin and into the muscle to relax painful myofascial trigger points. It releases the deepest tissue, and thereby, allows movement and reduces pain. Dry needling also helps in peripheral nerve stimulation. It is effective in both acute and chronic pain conditions. 

Conditions commonly treated are:

  • Neck pain 
  • Back pain
  • Myofascial trigger points
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Frozen shoulder, etc.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy and sports medicine. Its main assets are quick pain-relief and mobility restoration. In addition to being a non-surgical therapy, there is no need for painkillers, thereby making it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications that cause acute or chronic pain, including:

  • Jumper’s knee/patellar tendonitis
  • Frozen shoulder,
  • Supraspinatus tendinopathy,
  • Plantar fasciitis,
  • Hip pain,
  • Tennis elbow,
  • Golfer’s elbow,
  • Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome,
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome,
  • Low back pain, etc.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy is FDA-cleared and has a high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs. It is a non-surgical, traction-based therapy for the relief of back- and leg pain/neck- and arm pain. 

During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum allows the material that has protruded or herniated to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, and permit healing to occur.

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves).

The treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the session. Our state of the art decompression table has the sEMG feedback module which digitally monitors patient comfort level.

Neurodynamics

We all know that the body’s joints move and the muscles contract and stretch. But did you know that nerve tissue also needs to move freely? If your neural tissue is impeded, it would result in pain or restriction of the nerve’s movement. 

“Neural Tension Treatment” would entail a series of neural tension tests which would identify:  

  1. The exact nerves that are facing adverse neural tension
  2. The location of the impediment itself.

With accurate assessment and treatment to the structure causing the adverse neural tension, a neurodynamics-trained physiotherapist would quickly be able to normalise your movement and provide nerve pain relief. 

Common examples of structures that can impede a nerve’s movement include: 

  • Back pain
  • Bulging disc,
  • Sciatica
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tennis elbow
  • Pinched nerve

Manipulation

“Articular manipulation” or “joint manipulation” is a technique where high velocity thrust is delivered to the joint in order to gain range, reduce pain and also to re-align the joint. Manipulations also help in breaking the knots in the joint (adhesions), which are the primary cause of joint stiffness. The most common manipulation techniques are: Maitland’s, Kaltenborn, Cyriax, etc.
