    I think it is one of the best physiotherapy in Jakarta (at least better than Physio M*****l C****c). Going there for 2x already but can feel the difference from day 1. The dry needle technique from Bu Ika is really help me to reduce my neck stiffness. Still need going there to relieve pain on my arms. She is able to find out the problem although in my case, there might be more than one root causes but still better than not finding anything. Love how they apply the technology as part of their service. We can see our exercises that need to be done on the app. It is really helpful (although it needs some improvement). The receiptionist is wonderful too. Meet 2 different people and both are great at service. Love on how they treat us and offer us a drink https://goo.gl/maps/J6uxowjwGSxupbBD8

    I have known Gail Craig for over three years now and I continue to put my care in her hands for the following reasons. She is very knowledgeable about the whole body and how it gets injured and starts to heal. She doesn’t just look at one part of your body, she looks at the balance of your body. I know that she is providing good information because it makes sense to me as a nurse.

Thermotherapy & Cryotherapy

Thermotherapy

Thermotherapy is the use of heat to treat symptoms of acute or chronic pain, especially those related to muscle tension or spasm. Thermotherapy widens blood vessels and increases blood flow to the skin. It relaxes superficial muscles, decreases muscle spasm and reduces stiffness of joints. The hot packs are applied either before or after the treatment. You can even use hot water bottles/microwave applicable hot packs for self-treatment at home. Put the hot pack on the painful area and cover it with a towel. You can keep it for 20-30 min and repeat several times a day.

Common conditions where heat therapy is applied:

  • Neck- and back pain
  • Tensed muscles
  • Muscle- and joint stiffness
  • Chronic pain

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy simply means the use of cold as a therapy. Applying cold to the area reduces the amount of fluid flowing into the tissues and also slows the release of chemicals that cause pain and inflammation. Cold also decreases the activity of cells in order to reduce the amount of swelling and internal bleeding at the injury site which means that it slows down the inflammation reaction. In the acute stage of an injury it gives relief to the pain and reduces the swelling. A cold pack or ice massage is usually applied after the treatment or used as home treatment.

Common conditions where cold therapy is applied:

  • Ankle sprain
  • Twisted knee
  • Painful shoulder
  • Acute muscle strain (24-48 h)

If you have an acute (sports) injury you should apply immediate ice to the affected area. Don’t apply the ice directly to the skin. Put a thin towel in between the cold pack and the skin. The application should last for 15-20 min and can be repeated every 3 hours.
