Course Description

16 Contact hours

Incorporating thermal and electrical modalities as an adjunct to a treatment plan can enhance patient outcomes.  This comprehensive course will emphasize the application and theory behind the use of both thermal and electrical modalities as they apply to a variety of patient diagnoses.  The course will be based on current evidence and will develop critical thinking skills to enable practitioners to select and use thermal and electrical modalities as they apply to current practice.  

Topics covered are:  principles and methods of application for a variety of superficial heat and cold modalities, Ultrasound, and Electrical modalities: Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), Iontophoresis, Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES), and High Volt Pulsed Stimulation, and Biofeedback. It will include evaluation principles, indications, precautions and contraindications, with a brief review of upper quarter  anatomy pertaining to the use of  physical agent modalities. Ethics, documentation and economics of physical agent modalities will be discussed. 

Through lecture, demonstration, considerable lab practice, and numerous case studies participants will be able to apply the information learned and skills practiced directly to their practice settings.
