Thermotherapy/Hot Pack

Effect : Improve local blood flow, Relieve pain, Loosen up local muscle

Superficial tissue/Skin temperature is raised about 10 °C in 7 to 10 minutes and temperature of subcutaneous 1 cm is also raised about 3 °C in 15 minutes by hot pack. Therefore, chemical mediators ,such as histamine, are released, which result in local vasodilation and local blood flow increase two times than usual. Increased local blood flow discharge Bradykinin that is well known as important mediator of pain in muscle and joint, which result in pain relief. Furthermore, reducing activity of muscle spindle which control muscle contraction by hot pack make muscle loosen up temporarily.

Local tissue manipulation (including Range
of motion exercise/joint mobilization)

Effect : Effect : Relieve pain, Improve/maintain function, Recurrence prevention

Physiotherapist will assess the area of discomfort and dysfunction through interview, inspection and palpation. After that, we provide you with local tissue manipulation, which means structural and functional approach. Structural approach means physiotherapist assesses posture, motion and condition of muscle, joint and nerve. Based on it, we will treat distortion, muscle tension and so on. It includes active and passive Range Of Motion exercise (ROMex).

 

On the other hand, functional approach means physiotherapist will assess level of Activity of Daily Living (ADLs) and fundamental motor skills. Based on it, we will provide you with some technique and manipulation for improving and/or maintaining these levels. In other word, local tissue manipulation is for preparation to exert motor skills. Furthermore, physiotherapist will inform you about your condition and will instruct you on how to prevent recurrence of injury and discomfort in your daily life.
