Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Laser Therapy do?

Laser therapy emits low level laser light to accelerate and promote healing, relieve pain of damaged tissue, and help to reduce inflammation. Laser therapy also helps with the collagen production in the body, which forms connective tissue. Collagen is important for our skin, bones, muscles, tendons, and overall body function.

How will Interferential Current (IFC) help?

Electrotherapy focuses on relieving pain, increasing blood flow, reducing swelling, and improving the healing process. IFC can help with the range of motion and restore mobility of muscles of injured areas.

Why Does Moist Heat help?

Using a moist heat pack helps target deep into the tissues, as well as increasing circulation around the injured area. This type of heat helps loosen tight muscles and improve mobility, therefore helping the body to heal faster.

What is a therapeutic Ultrasound?

Ultrasounding an affected area uses ultrasonic waves and tiny vibrations to improve pain and increase blood flow and circulation. Ultrasound therapy helps promote the healing of tissues and swelling of an affected area.

What is Patient Education?

At All Injury Management our team works hard to help our patients understand their own recovery process. We thrive everyday to teach proper techniques of exercise, as well educating patients on risks and benefits of our services.

Why is physical exercise important?

We offer a variety of ways for the body to move; like cardio equipment, free weights, cable machines and more! Physical exercise helps rebuild lost muscle and regain strength from an injury. Exercise helps with our endurance, as we safely build strength after an injury, the faster the healing process becomes.
