HOD Message 

               Electrotherapy is a gentle and non-invasive modality that works by stimulating nerves and muscles through the surface of the skin.The department of Electrotherapy tends, to explore fundamental skills in application of electrotherapeutic modalities and knowledge of indications,
contraindications and physiological principles needed for appropriate patient care. Our mission is to help people from pain and get back to normal naturally by invasive method of pain relief . More emphasis on hands on practicing in the labs giving excellent opportunity for the students to sharpen their clinical knowledge under the guidance of experienced faculty. The lab also ensures enough number of equipment’s to the students to practice. It includes topics such as Electrical stimulation, T.E.N.S., lontophoresis, Ultrasound/ Phonophoresis, Diathermy and Electro diagnostic testing etc. Electrotherapy lab is well equipped with modern equipments like LASER, Ultrasonic therapy, Interferential Therapy, etc.,
