PHYSIOTHERAPY: the application of physiotherapy modalities is often the starting point with patient care
at NSTC. Combining MOIST HEATING PACKS with ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION provides
a significant level of pain relief and muscle relaxation. This is a very helpful precursor to therapeutic massage,
because is relaxes the patient and causes the muscles and other soft tissues to become warmer and
more supple and therefore more receptive to the hands-on therapeutic massage.

ULTRASOUND is another commonly used physiotherapy modality at NSTC. It is important because it has the
ability to decrease swelling in an inflamed joint or irritated tissue. It is often used after a deep, therapeutic
massage to help facilitate further mobilization and removal of inflammatory waste products.

ICE is often recommended at home and is sometimes used in the office for its pain relieving and
anti-inflammatory action.

IONTOPHORESIS is a physiotherapy modality that uses an electric current to drive a topical anti-inflammatory
medicine into an irritated soft tissue or inflamed joint. A special sponge-type electrode is soaked with the
medicine and placed over the affected area.
