Three physical therapy techniques at Excel in St. Peters, MO

  1. Manual therapyManual therapy techniques are methods that involve the use of your physical therapist’s hands. He or she can use a variety of methods, such as joint mobilization or strain-counterstrain techniques, to help reduce your pain and improve your range of motion.

    There are different forms of manual therapy that are used for different types of pain and injury. Your physical therapist will be able to determine what kind of manual therapy is right for you.


  1. UltrasoundUltrasound is a treatment that can improve blood flow and reduce swelling and inflammation deep beneath the skin. In this treatment, your physical therapist uses a handheld device that produces ultrasound waves. These waves create heat that helps reduce pain and promote recovery.


  1. Electrical stimulation Electrical stimulation may sound like a form of torture, but it’s actually a reliable treatment method for pain and injuries. Your physical therapist will connect an electric charge emitting device to the injured area of your body. This device will release controlled bursts of energy that will cause your muscles to contract and release. This helps improve muscle strength during recovery, which can help make recovery faster and reduce pain.
