Our Brantford Pain Relief clinic offers the following services to help you:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an effective method of pain relief that uses sterile needles inserted into certain parts of the body.  It can help reduce, inflammation allowing the area of pain to heal quicker.

Cupping

Cupping is a technique used to increase blood flow by placing cups on the body that create suction.  This method of treatment can help relax tense muscles and relieve pain.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound Therapy is a common modality used by physiotherapists to help relieve pain and treat muscle injuries. It works by sending sound waves that vibrate the injured tissue. Ultrasound waves can help relieve pain by increasing blood flow, reducing swelling and by gently massaging the injured tissue. It is very safe and can be used on any body part.

TENS

A TENS machine is a device that emits a low voltage electric current that can be used for pain relief. It stimulates the nerves of the affected area and causes your body to release pain-relieving biochemicals called endorphins. It is very safe and can be used to treat acute of chronic pain.

IFC

Interferential Current (IFC) is another common modality used by physiotherapists to assist a patient with pain relief. It also uses electric currents to penetrate deep into the tissues under your skin. These electric currents help accelerate the healing process by reducing swelling and stimulating tissue healing.
