The use of physical agents as an adjunct to other therapeutic interventions often expedites and enhances patient outcomes. This seminar teaches commonly used modalities and their applications for a variety of clinical conditions. Lecture will address the theoretical basis and efficacy of each modality, physical properties (parameters) of the devices, the body’s physiological response to their application, indications and contraindications, and application techniques. Case scenarios, demonstrations, and significant amounts of lab time following the modality’s presentation will allow participants to integrate the information for use with patients upon return to the clinic.
1. Identify the physical characteristics of ultrasound and electricity and how stimulus parameters are selected to evoke the desired clinical outcome.
2. Describe the physiological and neurophysiological changes that occur with the application of ultrasound and electrical modalities.
3. Explain the indications, theoretical rationale, and efficacy of ultrasound and the various electrical modalities.
4. Classify the contraindications, precautions, and safety rules for ultrasound and electrical modalities.
5. Discuss care of ultrasound and the electrical devices and supplies.
6. Demonstrate the appropriate choice and application of physical agent to meet a variety of patient treatment goals, including decreasing pain and edema, relieving muscle spasm, muscle re-education, strengthening, and tissue repair.
7. Assess the integration of each modality’s protocol within the context of the overall treatment plan for various patient conditions.
