Rehabilitation from an injury or procedure seems like it can take forever. If you’ve been dealing with a long-term injury that doesn’t want to heal, you’re probably sick of pain. Probably also sick of being benched and sick of physical therapists “pushing” you around. Physical therapists offer you critical rehabilitation services – but what if they could offer you more?
For instance, if you’ve had a serious injury, surgery, or a stroke, or you’re in chronic pain, odds are that your doctor has sent you to a rehabilitation program.
This rehabilitation therapy happens in a controlled, medical environment to help your body heal while you
- get your strength and flexibility back,
- relearn skills, or
- find new ways to do activities that may now be difficult.
Types of Rehabilitation
The three main types of rehabilitation therapy are occupational, physical, and speech. In this article, though, we’ll focus on physical rehabilitation therapy.
Rehabilitation Services that Physical Therapists Offer
A physical therapist starts by assessing your mobility, balance, heartbeat, posture, and how well you can walk or climb steps. From there, they create a plan. The plan will not only ease symptoms but also help you regain functions or mobility.
Common rehabilitation therapies include:
- Stretches and exercises designed to relieve pain, improve mobility, or regain strength
- Massage therapy
- Heat or cold therapy to ease muscle pain and spasms
- Practicing with canes, crutches, walkers, or wheelchairs
- Balance and gait retraining
- Pain management
- Cardiovascular strengthening
As a result, you will slowly improve. But there’s a service that most rehabilitation programs may not currently offer. Moreover, it’s a service that can exponentially speed up your recovery. It’s called Electro-Equiscope. Intellbio is the only distributor of the Electro-Equiscope.
What Can Equiscope Benefit?
Need Some Science to Back it Up?
As an example of some evidence we’ve accumulated, a German study looked at 78 inpatients who’d had a total knee replacement (TKA). They were receiving normal rehab therapy.
Firstly, the researchers randomly split them into two groups. One group received an extra sham protocol. The other received additional micro-electric current protocol. Both had similar scores for their functioning at the start of the trial.
Secondly, they found that, after three months, the microcurrent group’s total function score was much higher than the control group’s.
These results suggested that rehabilitation therapists should use microcurrent therapy early on as a part of the usual rehabilitation protocol after TKA.
Since then, thousands of such patients have used it successfully.
5 Ways Electro-Equiscope Improves Your Rehabilitation
1 It’s convenient
Equiscope therapy is a full medical support suite “in a box”. It’s easy for professional practitioners to use it daily – in various venues or even in your home.
2 There’s no guessing
In addition, the Equiscope is made with unmatched accuracy and responsiveness. No guessing, just superior clinical results when controlling acute and chronic pain in rehabilitation services.
3. It’s painless
No more physical “pushing and forcing”. The Equiscope detects abnormal tissue response by sending a painless, minute, electrical current through your skin. This current then intelligently adjusts its output back into your cells to repair them quickly and painlessly.
4 The Equiscope delivers rapid results
The technology offers rapid pain relief. This is the new standard in electro-neural and myo stimulation. It’s also safe, tested, and registered as a Class II medical device.
5 Equiscope therapy is affordable
This form of rehabilitation therapy is an affordable choice for you. Your clinic may not accept insurance at this time. But results from Equiscope therapy will always repay your investment many times over.
Whether you’re in need of inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation services, Equiscope can help you get your active life back again. Faster. Find a practitioner near you!
