Treatment Modalities that can be used during your appointment with a Physiotherapist or Athletic Therapist:
Ultrasound - sounds waves are applied to the tissues at surface level and travels deeper. The sound waves cause vibrations in the tissue, which can create a mild or deep heating effect which is useful for soft tissue problems.
IFC/TENS electrical current - pads are applied to an area of the body with a mild electrical current running between the pads. This can help cause desensitization of the area, for managing pain or muscle spasm.
Normatec compression sleeves, massage guns, and vibrating foam rollers - all great recovery tools for stiffness and muscle spasm, for use before or after exercise. Sign up for times to use these fantastic tools during your time at LFC.
Surface EMG muscle activity biofeedback - watch your muscle contraction function in action during an exercise, to see if there is dysfunction or lack of proper muscle balance present. This is a great way to make sure you are engaging your muscles properly and in the right fashion, getting the most out of your training while avoiding injury risk.
Blood Flow Restriction - an excellent rehabilitation tool to build strength under low load (20-30% of 1RM. This is done by strapping a cuff around a limb to restrict blood flow, and completing low load exercise sets and reps guided by a Physiotherapist or Athletic Therapist
