Physical therapy

Galvanisation

This procedure involves constant application of electrical current generated by means of two electrodes. Galvanisation is used in such conditions as muscular atrophies, neurological disorders, chronic neuritis, flaccid paralysis, peripheral circulation disorders and injuries of joints, muscles and tendons.

EMDA Iontophoresis

This is a procedure used in electrotherapy. It uses direct current to apply ionised medicine to the affected part of the body through the skin. Iontophoresis is mainly used in the treatment of degenerative diseases and peripheral circulation disorders. It is also useful in the elimination of unsightly scars and dilated blood vessels. Another application of iontophoresis is the treatment of hyperhidrosis.


Four-cell bath

An electrotherapeutic procedure in which the upper and lower limbs are submerged in water in separate vessels (cells) and direct current is passed through them. This procedure is used in flaccid paralysis, neuralgias, pain syndromes in degenerative and rheumatic diseases, functional disorders of the autonomic nervous system and peripheral circulation disorders.

Electrostimulation

In this procedure, low-frequency current is used to trigger repeated contractions of muscles by means of electrodes attached to the body, stimulating the required parts. Electrostimulation reduces fatty tissue, improves skin elasticity and reduces muscle tension and pain.

Electro-puncture

Painless, non-invasive and very effective method, often referred to as ‘needleless acupuncture’.  The procedure consists in stimulation of reflex points located on the human body by means of electrical impulses.  Electro-puncture is effective in the treatment of headaches, neuralgias, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, diabetes, shingles, skin lesions, spinal pains, sciatica, obesity and paraparesis.

Tonolyse

An electrotherapeutic procedure in which muscles are subject to with regular alternate electrostimulation; it is applied in the treatment of spastic muscles. It is recommended to patients who have undergone cerebral stroke, spinal cord injury or suffer from multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy.

Diadynamic current therapy

Low-frequency currents lead to the production of vessel dilating substances in the tissues.  As a result, post-traumatic oedemas and peripheral circulation disorders are reduced. Diadynamic currents are used in pain management therapy, osteoarthritis, radicular syndrome, Raynaud’s disease, peripheral nerve paralysis or paresis, as well as in the recovery from bone and joint injuries.

Kotz currents

Training of healthy muscles by means of electrostimulation with medium-frequency current. Kotz currents are used both in rehabilitation and biological regeneration and sports to supplement strength or endurance training of muscles.

Nemec currents

Medium-frequency currents. They have analgetic effects and improve the blood supply to vessels.  Their application is recommended when acute pain fades away. Nemec currents are used to support the treatment of osteoarthritis of the limbs, spinal pain syndromes, discopathies, muscular atrophies due to inactiveness, post-traumatic and post-operative conditions of muscles, soft tissue rheumatism and neuralgias. 

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)

Medium and high-frequency currents with a strong analgetic effect.  They make the pain fade away by electrostimulation of the nerves. TENS is used in acute and chronic pain syndromes of muscles, spine, joints and in neuralgias.

Träbert currents

In this procedure, muscles are caused to vibrate, which relaxes them. It is otherwise known as a stimulation-current massage.  Träbert currents stimulate muscles, relieve pain, improve circulation and support treatment of hard-to-heal wounds.

Ultrasounds

In this method, ultrasound waves are used to provide a gentle massage of tissues. Ultrasounds have both analgetic and anti-inflammatory effects.  They reduce muscle tension, dilate blood vessels and accelerate metabolism. The procedure is recommended in neuralgias, pain syndromes of the spine and joints, calcaneal spurs and bunions, post-amputation pains and Dupuytren’s contracture.

High Energy Laser Therapy

This state-of-the-art therapy uses a high-energy laser whose degree of penetration enables effective stimulation and treatment of every possible area of the body. The procedure is recommended in spinal pains, osteoarthritis, discopathies, neck pains, dislocated ankle joints, sciatica and muscle strain injuries.

Scanning laser therapy

High-precision exposure of tissues to laser light. It helps to treat spinal pains, osteoarthritis, chronic neuritis, post-operative scars and muscle contractures.

Diathermy

A physical therapy procedure which consists in local heating of tissues in a high-frequency electric or magnetic field. Diathermy relaxes muscles and relieves pain.  It is particularly recommended to patients suffering from neuralgias, muscle injuries, chronic inflammatory conditions, osteoarthritis, spondylosis and in the treatment of sinusitis.

Terapuls

In this procedure, high-frequency electromagnetic pulses are generated using a special device. The procedure is recommended in degenerative changes, frostbite, arthritis, laryngological affections and chronic sinusitis.

Magnetic stimulation

Non-invasive treatment using low-frequency magnetic pulses. In this procedure, magnetic field is applied to the whole body or locally. This method ensures rapid regeneration after physical exertion, restores vitality, cleanses the body, improves metabolism, supports the endocrine system and prevents osteoporosis.

Magnetic therapy

Efficient treatment method, using low-frequency magnetic pulses. This method is recommended in inflammatory conditions.  Magnetic therapy is also effective in the treatment of injuries, rheumatic diseases, post-operative conditions, respiratory tract diseases, cardiovascular and heart diseases.

Cryotherapy

In this procedure liquid nitrogen vapours are directed at the affected area of the body. Cryotherapy reduces body temperature, improves joint mobility and eliminates swelling and inflammations. Cryotherapy supports treatment of rheumatic diseases and has an analgetic effect.
