Fulcrum Sports Therapy offers a range of elctrotherapy treatments, including:
- Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (LIPUS)
- Micro Current
The effectiveness of these pain free treatments is well evidenced. In particular they are shown to speed up tissue and bone repair and offer genuinely benefits for general healing, making them ideal as supportive complimentary treatments.
Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound is of a fixed 1mhz intensity and is considered to be a low risk, cold treatment. It offers great benefits for skin, lymphatic drainage and pain reduction, by using sound waves, which cannot be heard by the human ear, that are directed into the body and are absorbed by different types of tissue at greater depths (Up to 3cms) and in places manual therapies cannot reach or are too tender to touch.
LIPUS Ultrasound promotes healthy skin tissue and healing, leaving treated areas looking refreshed and healthy. It does this by stimulating the flow of blood and nutrients and helps reduce swelling and the dark appearance that comes with bruising.
Micro Current enables greater flexibility during treatments, allowing a pain free treatment, treatment of two areas at once or mutiple treatments (one after the other) during injury rehabilitation.
