Direct current and low and medium frequency pulsed currents are used for treatment. Among electrotherapeutic treatments, we distinguish electrostimulation, which involves inducing muscle contraction using pulsed currents.
It is used in the relief of pain of various origins: chronic muscle pain, neuralgia, degenerative joint changes, spinal pain syndromes, post-traumatic pain, post-operative pain, phantom pain after amputations, migraine pain, root pain, menstrual pain.
It has analgesic effects, reduces muscle tension, and improves circulation.
It is mainly used for motor stimulation. Such a current can induce rapid and significant strength gains in the stimulated muscle.
They have analgesic effects, stimulate skeletal muscles to contract, reduce sympathetic nerve tension, improve circulation and tissue nutrition.
A treatment involving the application of low-frequency currents, in the form of "pulsed currents." The treatment takes advantage of a number of their therapeutic properties: reducing muscle tension, relieving pain, local tissue congestion, and increasing muscle mass.
It is used in the treatment of neuralgia, chronic nerve inflammation, peripheral circulation disorders, obstructed bone adhesions, and pain syndromes of degenerative spine disease.
It is a treatment involving the introduction of a drug through the skin into deeper tissues by the force of an electric field. It is recommended as an analgesic treatment for osteoarthritis, RA, AS, psoriatic arthritis, gout, after injuries to soft tissues and the osteoarticular system, osteoporosis, and strain syndromes.
An electrotherapeutic procedure designed to induce a controlled contraction of a muscle or group of muscles. Typical indications for electrostimulation are muscle atrophy after joint immobilization, after paralysis. The treatment is also widely used in neurological diseases when the conduction of nerve impulses to muscles is impaired.
A method of electrostimulation whose main function is to restore the physiological balance of excitation of muscle fibers. It is used in dysfunctions of the central nervous system, where there is spastic paralysis of the muscles. Alternation of flexor and extensor muscles forced by the flow of current leads, in effect, to the restoration of the reflex mechanism and restoration of the physiological balance of paralyzed muscles. Indications for the procedure include conditions after brain injury and stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, torticollis of functional origin.
A referral is required for the treatments.
