The MIE H-Wave machine is a unique electrotherapy instrument which combines muscular and neurological stimulation. It allows fast and efficient rehabilitation treatment to soft tissue injuries. High frequency treatment provides instant pain relief whereas low frequency muscle stimulation reduces swelling, improves blood and lymphatic flow, therefore encourages efficient healing.
While traditional treatments restricted movement to injured muscles, today we know that keeping muscles moving and improving circulation reduce pain and speed healing. Kinisio taping areas have the following benefits:
Support the muscle - Proper taping improves the muscle's ability to contract even when it's weakened, reduces a feeling of pain and fatigue, and protects the muscle from cramping, over-extension and over-contraction.
Removes congestion - Kinesiology tape improves blood and lymphatic circulation and reduces inflammation and excess chemical buildup in the tissue. This process is facilitated by the tape gently lifting the outer connective tissue away from the damaged muscle fibres, thus allowing a better flow of blood and nutrients to the site.
Correcting joint problems – corrects muscle function that have a direct effect on joint range of motion.
