Our clinic has the latest therapeutic rehabilitation technology in the form of the Chatanooga Intelect Neo Therapy system, which is the new standard in physical medicine modalities. The Intelect Neo offers the full range of electro-therapy modalities including: offering laser (LLLT), ultrasound, TENS and EMS & biofeedback.

Therapeutic ultrasound has three primary benefits:
- The first is the speeding up of the healing process from the increase in blood flow in the treated area.
- The second is the decrease in pain from the reduction of swelling and edema.
- The third is the gentle massage of muscles tendons and/ or ligaments in the treated area because no strain is added and any scar tissue is softened.
