Electrotherapy is an umbrella term covering various treatment techniques in which electricity is used for treatment purposes. Electrotherapy is proven to decrease inflammation and facilitate the healing process when applied directly to the affected area. Our physiotherapists at Liverpool Physio use electrotherapy as one of many treatment options in order to provide a comprehensive and personalised rehabilitation plan.

The Use of Electrotherapy in Physiotherapy

Electrotherapy is used in conjunction with other treatments to achieve the best results. Electrotherapy can be delivered in many ways depending on the patient and what your physiotherapist sees appropriate based on their assessment.

Electrotherapy works by using electricity to deliver pain relief. Examples of different forms of Electrotherapy can be administered in different forms such as:
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
  • Ultrasound
  • Pulsed Shortwave Therapy
