OCSI is a huge advocate of activity. After injury, compensatory patterns the body develops can prevent optimal movement patterns. As such, once the condition is on the correct road to recovery, movement patterns and muscle activation needs to be addressed. This supports passive treatment to help support the therapy you are receiving and prevent the reoccurrence of injury.
Modalities use different electrical current or ultrasound to provide treatment. Electrodes or an ultrasound wand are applied to the skin and settings are determined based on the nature of your condition and the goal of therapy such as muscle activation, decreasing inflammation, managing pain or to promote healing. IFC, TENS, EMS, Microcurrent, Electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound are the treatments available at OCSI.
