Physical Medicine Modalities

Modalities are any physical agents that are applied to produce therapeutic changes to biologic tissues. These can include thermal, acoustic, light, mechanical, or electric energy. Physical Medicine Modalities are used to enable healing and reduce both inflammation and musculoskeletal pain. They can also improve circulation and deliver medication in accordance with other procedures.
