dry needling

Thedry needling is a semi-invasive technique that uses acupuncture needles to treat myofascial pain caused by trigger points. DNHS® is a dry needling technique whose main objective isreduce hypertone and spasticity of those patients who suffer from an injury to the central nervous system and thus improve their functionality. Both techniques can be performed on both adults and children.

It has been shown that DNHS® produces effects similar to botulinum toxin infiltration, without the need to infiltrate.

The DNHS® can help us in:

·      Reduction of spasticity and hypertone.

·      Activation of muscles that are inhibited.

·      Improve and maintain ranges of motion.

If you have questions about this technique or want more information, do not hesitate to contact us. Our team of physiotherapists will be happy to assess and analyze your case to adapt to the needs of each person.

 

Electrostimulation: Electrostimulation (EMS) consists of the application of electrical current, which produces muscle contractions similar to those produced by our brain, imitating the natural physiology of muscle contraction at the moment in which the motor nerve is stimulated. These currents can be modified depending on the objective or effect that we are looking for:

  • Effects on pain, vascularization.

  • Effect on muscle tone.

Whose objectives can be, among others:

  • Reduce pain.

  • Activate weak or inhibited muscles.

  • Help in processes such as swallowing by training the different muscles.

  • Improve ranges of motion and reduce spasticity.

  • Produce improvements in functionality.

 

At FIVAN we work with electrostimulation from the area of physiotherapy and speech therapy, carrying out intensive treatments and specific protocols according to the patient's needs, but also as a complementary tool within other therapies.

Therapeutic laser:

It is a type of non-invasive, painless and non-thermal therapy. The low-intensity laser is a device that provides a narrow beam of monochromatic and coherent light in the visible, infrared or ultraviolet range of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum.

When a therapeutic laser is applied, low energy intensity light is used that stimulates biomodulation, normalizing the altered region.  This light is absorbed by the tissue and produces a biochemical interaction that increases ATP reserves, improving oxygen consumption and normalization of soft tissue. In short, it generates changes in cellular metabolism.

Therapeutic effects of low level laser therapy:

• Analgesia.

• Anti-inflammatory.

• Improvement of edema.

• Circulatory. 

According to the above, the laser is then indicated for inflammatory processes, post-operative treatments, wounds, healing, bone regeneration, cartilage deterioration, arthritic processes, trauma, neuralgia, paralysis and muscle alterations.

At FIVAN we use this tool in both physiotherapy and speech therapy since in both specialties we treat soft, muscular and osteoarticular tissues of the muscular and skeletal system.
