Electrotherapy

 

TENS - Trancutaneous electrical nerve stimulation

It means the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for producing analgesia (reducing pain).


Iontophoresis

It is a technique using a small electric charge to deliver a medicine or other chemical through the skin. The effect of the treatment can be local or general: pain in the muscles, overstrain, alleviating arthritis, accelerates the adsorption of hematomas and softens the scars.
It’s an antiphlogistic and pain-killing treatment during which we use different kind of electrical currents and well-controlled current impulses.  It can be use effective in case of chronic pain syndromes, myalgia and certain kind of neuralgias.


Selective stimulus current

The stimulus current used during the treatment induces a strong but painless contraction of the certain muscle or muscle group. The aim is to prevent the decrease of the muscle strength or recovery of the weakened and paretic muscle.
