 Electric impulses are used in the treatment of several diseases of the locomotive organs and neurological diseases. The electrotherapy procedure utilizes the irritating effect of mixed electric currents of varying intensity. Irritation by electrical impulses at specific parts of the body results in blood flow to the treated part of the body, mainly painful large joints. It has markedly analgesic effects, ie it relieves pain and at the same time relaxes and strengthens muscles.
 

Procedures

Diadynamics

Electrotreatment procedure that uses the irritating effect of mixed electrical currents (galvanic, faradic or other). It achieves blood flow to the treated part of the body, mainly painful large joints. It has analgesic effects.

Therapeutic effects:

  • pain relief
  • inhibition of inflammation
  • muscle relaxation and strengthening

Recommended for:

  • locomotive diseases (joint and spine pain)
  • neurological diseases

The procedure lasts: as prescribed by a doctor

Prescription required: yes

Interference currents

Interference currents are used in the treatment of locomotive organs. These are alternating, medium-frequency currents, which are applied by the device, irritating the nerve-muscle tissue. They are applied to the back, upper and lower limbs, bladder muscle.

Therapeutic effects:

  • pain relief
  • muscle relaxation
  • improving tissue perfusion
  • muscle stimulation

Recommended for:

  • pain of nervous origin
  • inflammatory rheumatic changes
  • in diseases of the spine, joints of the upper and lower limbs

The procedure lasts: as prescribed by a doctor

Prescription required: yes

Diathermy

Diathermy is a form of utilizing high-frequency currents for deep tissue overheating. The basic effect of the high-frequency current when passing through the tissue is the generation of heat at the depth of the tissue.

Therapeutic effects:

  • vascular enlargement increases blood flow
  • tissue nutrition is improved
  • local and overall defenses increase
  • heat acts sedative and relieves pain

Recommended for:

  • musculoskeletal disorders (eg chronic inflammatory and degenerative joint diseases, post-traumatic conditions)
  • nervous diseases (eg spine)
  • urological diseases (chronic conditions of kidney inflammation)
  • gynecological diseases (eg inflammatory conditions)
  • skin diseases (eg purulent skin, rose disease)
  • internal diseases (chronic airway inflammation, asthma)

The procedure lasts: as prescribed by a doctor

Prescription required: yes

Magnetotherapy

It utilizes the therapeutic effect of permanent or pulsating magnetic fields, which by their action increases the permeability of cell membranes many times. There is increased metabolism, markedly increased blood flow and oxygenation of body parts to which the pulsed magnetic field is applied. The client lies on a magnetic mat or has his limbs inserted into a magnetic applicator.

Therapeutic effects:

  • reduces and eliminates pain
  • causes dilation of blood vessels
  • has an anti-inflammatory effect
  • has a healing effect
  • promotes metabolism

Recommended for:

  • post-traumatic conditions
  • chronic, inflammatory and degenerative conditions of the musculoskeletal system
  • pains of nervous origin (neuralgia)

The procedure lasts: as prescribed by a doctor

Prescription required: yes

Ultrasound therapy

The ultrasonic device generates ultrasonic waves that penetrate deep into the tissues where they vibrate the cells. The tissue converts mechanical energy into thermal energy, thus locally raising the temperature of the underlying tissues, such as muscles and the micromassage effect at the cellular level. Regarding the indications, it is applied at different intensities and therapeutic doses. Ultrasound is applied by a physiotherapist in circular movements, using the head, directly to the affected area.

Therapeutic effects:

  • pain relief
  • release of cramps
  • improving blood flow
  • improving nutrition and tissue regeneration capacity
  • strong muscle relaxation

Recommended for:

  • osteoarthritis
  • chronic inflammatory diseases of the joints
  • pains of neural origin (neuralgia)
  • neuritis
  • gynecological problems and many other diseases

The procedure lasts: 5-10 min. / according to doctor's prescription /

Prescription required: yes

Bioptron

Bioptron is one of the light healing procedures that takes advantage of the beneficial properties of natural sunlight without ultraviolet radiation and possible harmful effects. It is applied directly to the skin and supports the regenerative abilities of the body. It helps the body activate its own self-healing potential. It is used topically under the supervision of a physiotherapist.

Therapeutic effects:

  • relieving and relieving pain (throat, head, trauma, rheumatic pain)
  • improves wound healing
  • strengthens muscles

Recommended for:

  • vertebrogenic pain syndrome
  • skin diseases
  • inflammatory processes
  • rheumatic pain
  • after fractures
  • overloaded muscles and the like.

The procedure lasts: as prescribed by a doctor

Prescription required: yes

Solux

Solux is a method in which infrared light is applied locally by means of the device, which by its thermal action increases the body's immunity. Various therapeutic effects can be achieved by irradiation. It is mainly used in chronic respiratory diseases (asthma, allergy, bronchitis, etc.).

Therapeutic effects:

  • tissue overheating and heating
  • relieves pain and swelling

Recommended for:

  • vertebrogenic pain syndrome
  • arthritis
  • arthrosis
  • skin diseases
  • inflammation
  • asthma, bronchitis

The procedure lasts: as prescribed by a doctor

Prescription required: yes
