ELECTROTHERAPY

It represents the use of numerous modalities of electric current that are obtained using modern electronic devices for therapeutic purposes. Electrotherapy causes blood vessels to dilate and increases blood and lymph circulation. In that way, the inflammatory process is reduced and it helps to remove the factors that lead to pain and swelling.

 

It accelerates the regeneration of peripheral nerves and osteogenesis (healing) in bone fractures.

 

It is most often used in treatment:

 

  • SPORTS INJURIES
  • ARTHROSIS AND ARTHRITIS
  • SPINNING AND DISTORTION OF JOINTS
  • LIGAMENT AND MUSCLE INJURY
  • NERVE PROBLEMS
  • PAIN IN THE LUMBAR AND NECK OF THE SPINE
  • SICK SHOULDER AND ELBOW

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT LOOK LIKE?

 

 

The physiotherapist places therapeutic electrodes on painful and injured places. Depending on the size of the painful region, two to six electrodes are usually placed. Then the electrical device is turned on and the appropriate and correct therapeutic frequency and amplitude are set. The patient feels pleasant sensations and tingling, and no discomfort and pain. After only a few treatments, there is an improvement, reduction of pain and swelling.
