Modalities available at Kauvery Institute Of Orthopedics and Neurosciences

Ultrasonic Therapy

  • It speeds up of the healing process by increasing blood flow in the treated area.
  • Also helps to decrease pain by reducing edema or swelling.
  • It can be used to treat injured ligaments, tendons, fascia, joint capsule and scar tissue.

Interferential Therapy (IFT)

Used for pain management and reduction of muscle spasm.

Mechanical Spinal Traction

  • It is indicated in the management of spinal pain when decompression of nervous, vascular or articular structures is sought.
  • Reduces the intervertebral disc herniation( cervical/ lumbar)
  • Relaxes the spinal muscles.

Electrical Stimulation

  • Intervention through the application of electricity – electrical stimulation of individual muscles is a means of providing exercise to muscles that the patient is unable to contract voluntarily.
  • It is used to activate muscle by stimulating an intact or partially intact peripheral nerve.
  • Can be used for bell's palsy, facial nerve palsy or any other peripheral nerve injuries and to regain the muscle action.

Continous Passive Motion (CPM)

  • It is a device which continuously moves the affected joint without any assistance.
  • It is used following surgery focussing on passive range of motion and to restore mobility.
  • It improves recovery and prevents adhesions, joint stiffness or contractures.

Wax Bath

  • A moist heat is applied to ease the pain and stiffness of osteoarthritis
  • Helps loosen up the joint before exercises or joint mobilization.

Manual Therapy

Manipulation/ mobilization is used to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain; increasing range of motion, reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation, inducing relaxation, improving contractile and non- contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and or stability, facilitating movement and improving function.

Therapeutic Exercise

A broad range of activities intended to improve strength, range of motion, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness and to increase a person's functional capacity.

Home Exercise Programs

Individual home programs are written, taught and monitored closely by the therapist through the duration of one's therapy with progressive modifications that are based on the individual needs, progress and established goals.
