At Dunn Physical Therapy we pride ourselves in having the most up-to-date, evidence based treatment programs, with cutting edge treatment modalities to accompany. Whenever possible, we work closely with other members of your healthcare team to develop a multidisciplinary approach to your treatment and care. Many of the modalities that we offer as standard are not offered as comprehensively in any other programs in the greater Louisville area. Some of these modalities include:
Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN)
Guided Imaging Ultrasound
Surface Electrode Biofeedback
Balloon Expulsion Training (BET)
Behavioral training tool that assesses the pressure or force that is produced by the pelvic floor when muscle activation is performed.
Graduated weight program to assist in progressive pelvic floor strengthening.
Intra-vaginal/Intra-rectal Electrical Stimulation
Tool used for pelvic floor muscle re-education through the use of an intra-vaginal or intra-rectal sensor. Noted to be a very beneficial intervention for incontinence and pelvic pain.
Therapeutic Ultrasound (US)
Not to be confused with Guided Imaging Ultrasound, Therapeutic Ultrasound is the use of sound waves to stimulate soft tissues and has been a standard in the world of physical therapy since the 1950s. Therapeutic Ultrasound can assist in the treatment of muscle spasm or decreased blood flow; it can promote healing and help to decrease inflammation as well.
The use of electrical currents to assist in various physiologic processes through nerve or muscle stimulation. Some uses include: increasing strength and preventing disuse atrophy, stimulating sensory nerves to reduce pain, and stimulating or altering the healing process of injured tissue. There are many different types/frequencies/settings that can be used based on your goal. Some of these include high voltage, low voltage, biphasic current, Russian, TENS and Interferential current.
The use of electrical current to drive ions beneficial to the healing process through the skin into the healing connective tissues.
