For instance, the strengthening of the muscles supporting the knee will reduce the strain on the knee joint, reduce pain and prevent further injury. Regular exercises can also help restore the strength of the back and a gradual return to everyday activities. • Traction – This technique is effective to treat shoulder dislocation, fractures, muscle spasms and joint disarticulation. Force is applied to the injured part for stabilizing movements of the bone. • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve (TEN) Stimulation – This treatment involves passage of low voltage electric current to the affected part of the body for suppressing pain. Acute pain related to joint disorders, herniated discs or fractures can be alleviated using this technique.                                                                       1­718­769­2521
