Physical Therapy is the treatment of injuries or disease by means of exercise, massage, and hot or cold therapy units. MFI carries an assortment of physical therapy supplies, machines, and treatment units to better equip caregivers.
Exercise tools available through MFI Medical include exercise balls, yoga mats, pilates tools, and balance boards. These tools enhance a patient’s therapy repertoire, working the muscles and joints and improving coordination in a gentle way.
Positioning pillows are often utilized along with exercise equipment or on therapy tables as supplemental tools for therapists. Some pillows are shaped as wedges, which combine the softness of a pillow with hard angles in order to position limbs as needed. Back and neck pillows can also be utilized while laying down or sleeping, to keep patients with neck or back injuries comfortable and stable.
When physical therapists need an extra hand, or want to apply treatment to a specific area of the patient’s body, a traction table can provide better access to that area. Traction tables are split into sections, with each section being adjustable in order to position the patient as needed.
When working the muscles of the body, massage can be an excellent way to relax sore muscles. MFI carries many tools of the trade, including massage balls, portable tables, various applicators, lotions, and massage machines for deep tissue work.
Electrical Muscle Stimulators
Electrical muscle stimulators are devices that provide controlled electrical currents to electrodes placed on the human body. These electrical currents can stimulate muscles and nerve endings, helping to decrease or even eliminate pain. These stimulators come in various sizes, from larger in-office devices to portable, handheld TENS units for patients.
Hot and Cold Therapy
Using temperature-controlled accessories is a common method to soothe sore muscles or relieve pain. Chattanooga offers versatile HotPacs in various shapes and sizes to fit the odd angles of the body. ICE20 goes the extra mile and combines cold packs with wraps to keep the cold temperature targeted to a certain area of the body.
Diathermy machines are another method of heat therapy that target deep muscle tissues with heat, using electromagnetic currents. The deep penetration allows tense muscles to relax, and is best for physical therapy patients who need more than surface-level heat packs.
