+ Basic equipment for the use of Physical Therapists Jessica Sun
+ *GOAL* The goal for these basic equipment's are for treatment sessions to decrease muscle tone/ muscle spasms, increase range of motion, increase the circulation in the body, promote tissue and fracture healing and most importantly, to decrease pain.(Help relieve pain for patients during each session.)
+ Ultrasound Therapy Sends deep penetrating sound waves to the source of the pain to immediately soothe and relax Efficiently heats muscle tissue to promote faster healing Increases circulation Reduces pain & inflammation Ultrasonic therapy is one of the most efficient, non-invasive, heat therapies approved for medical use.
Intelect TranSport Ultrasound $1, Found at: ultrasound?productId=6713#.Ux8T_9yzCag
+ ElectroStimulation Machine Pain Management Electrotherapy works by interrupting the signal for pain, keeping you from feeling it Activates the body to produce endorphins Healing Reduces swelling (edema) Increases blood flow Increases circulation of affected area
Chattanooga Intelect Legend 4-Channel Stimulation Therapy System $2, Found at: 47/chattanooga-intelect-legend-4-channel-stimulation- therapy-p-876
+ Spinal Traction For neck/lower back pain (cervical/lumbar traction) Pulls vertebrae apart from each other to create more space for nerves Relieve pressure on the cartilage disks between the bones or on the small spinal joints themselves Can stretch small spinal muscles Decrease the pain
Chattanooga - TTET-200 Electric Hi-Lo Traction Table $3, Found at: 65KGvi70CFahlOgod2G4Arw
+ Heat/Cold Packs Dilates the blood vessels of the muscles which increases the flow of oxygen/nutrients to the muscles Reduce pain in joints and relax sore muscles, ligaments, and tendons Applying heat decreases the transmissions of pain signals to the brain and partially relieve discomfort Decrease in stiffness and injury with an increase in flexibility and overall feeling of comfort. Reduce pain/swelling Slows down blood circulation, reducing inflammation, muscle spams and pain. Used for a swollen or bruised area Good use for sprains, strains, bumps, and bruises Heat TherapyCold Therapy
+ Hep2Go After each physical therapy session with treatment, every patient goes home with different exercises/stretches to prevent further injury and to strengthen the muscles. This software is for physical therapists to create and share home exercise programs for their patients for after their treatment to better strengthen targeted muscles and addressing any muscular imbalances that may exist. About 1,000 therapeutic exercises available!!!!
Basic Plan is free!! PRO Plan = $4.95 a month Found at:
+ COST!! Intelect TranSport Ultrasound $1, Chattanooga Intelect Legend 4-Channel Stimulation Therapy System $2, Chattanooga - TTET-200 Electric Hi-Lo Traction Table $3, Core Products Thermal Core Moist Heat Pack Heater THM-2510 $ Chattanooga Colpac Freezer Unit $ Hep2go Basic= free; PRO Plan= $4.95 a month All together = $8, including PRO Plan
+ *Conclusion* Everyone wants to live a care-free, happy and easy life. Depending on what type of pain the patient is experiencing, using any of these equipment’s alone or together would help you decrease the severity of the pain the patient is experiencing (after each treatment session) Following treatment, different stretches and exercises that will also given to the patient from the physical therapist will help the patient increase range of motion, strengthen the muscle in the area and decrease pain in the area.
