Treatments in the field of physiotherapy

Polarized light treatment has an analgesic, stimulating the immune system effect, it acts curative and anti-inflammatory.

• treatment of pain
• wound healing
• stimulation of the immune system
• acceleration of metabolic processes
• improvement of the general appearance of the skin
• strengthening the skin tension
• optimization of moisturisers and skin care preparations

• increase production of collagen


Viofor (magnetic stimulation)
Magnetic stimulation - alleviates pain, accelerates tissue healing time after injuries, swellings. Many MS patients react positively to magneto stimulation. It strengthens the immune system, helps in the treatment of osteoporosis and asthma. It causes the normalization of membrane potential, increase of enzymatic activity, stimulates nutrition and cell growth and regulates the intracellular processes leading to recovery of the organism. It has analgesic, recovery, relaxation, anti spastic effects and reduces the deficit and oxygen debt.

Pulsatronic (tonolysis, stimulation)
Electrostimulator is used to stimulate motor weakness and flaccid paralysis: paralysis of peroneal, radial, facial nerve. The procedure is performed also by using tonolysis to stimulate the spastic paralysis in the rehabilitation of the patients after strokes, brain neurosurgical procedures in multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.

These are interference currents, passed through two pairs of electrodes that produce two current circuits. As a result of the interference, the effect is localized in the central part of the disease process.

The effect of the treatment depends on the type of drug, added to the galvanic current – it may have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxants effect or local treatment of osteoporosis. We also use natural medicinal materials, such as sulphide and mud formulations.

• scars, scar contractures
• difficult synostosis
• neuralgia
• syndrome of sciatica
• inflammation of the joints
• inflammation of the skin and soft tissue

• allergy to the drug

Laser therapy
The strength of a coherent monochromatic light beam of high energy density reaches the deeper tissues. It has a regenerating, analgesics, healing effect, it stimulates the activity of tissue oxidation. Laser radiation dosage is individual, depending on the disease. Each time the doctor determines the amount of energy and time of treatment.

• wounds and ulcers
• chronic inflammations
• difficult synostosis
• osteoarthritis
• back pain
• inflammation of tendons, fascia
• Peripheral nerve neuralgia

• cancer

These are sound waves with frequencies higher than the audible range. They have a mechanical, heat and chemical action. They have analgesic effect, reduce muscle tension, inhibit inflammatory processes. They work particularly well in the treatment of enthesopathy e.g. heel spurs.

• pains in joints and spine
• neuralgia
• contractures
• scars
• calcaneal spurs
• painful syndrome of the shoulder, elbow
• sciatica 

• pregnancy
• cancer
• state after pacemaker implantation
• The presence of metallic implants in the area of the treatment
• acute inflammatory processes
• wasted organism

The treatment with the use of variable magnetic field of low frequency accelerates healing, bone union, tissue regeneration after injury, it improves blood circulation, has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and soothing effect. It improves peripheral circulation.

• delayed bone union
• peripheral circulatory disorders
• hard to heal wounds and ulcers
• osteoarthritis
• joint pains
• Multiple Sclerosis

• pregnancy
• cancer
• cardiac pacemakers
• Serious infections
• Acute coronary insufficiency

Galvanic currents
This is the electric treatment which uses a constant current. During the current flow we consciously feel the gentle tingle and stinging, which, with the rate growth can go on to burn. The skin under the electrodes comes to a short-term constriction and then dilation of blood vessels. Congestion, which means a more intense galvanic erythema at the cathode, smaller at the anode, may slightly occur around the electrodes. Vessels of deeper muscles are also enlarged, which results from the irritation of the autonomic nervous system receptors in the skin. The treatment increases blood circulation, increases the excitability of the neuromuscular system, reduces muscle tension, reduces swelling, speeds up the process of wound healing, stimulates the bone growth and alleviates pain connected with the operation of anodes for hydrogen ions and potassium.

• neuralgia
• polyneuropathies
• Chronic inflammation of the nerves, plexuses and nerve roots
• osteoarthritis of the spine
• discopathy
• osteoporosis
• flaccid paralysis
• peripheral circulatory disorders

Nemec currents 
Interferential currents are currents of medium frequency (4000Hz) modulated in amplitude at low frequency. The interference therapy involves the simultaneous application of  currents of two independent circuits, which are slightly different frequency to patient‘s body.
As a result of the overlap of the currents in the tissue of the patient (interference), a new type of current appears, whose action is located in the central part of the disease process. The impulses generated in the tissues, under the influence of interference, exert an analgesic effect, stimulate the contraction of skeletal muscles, affect the autonomic nervous system by reducing sympathetic nerve tension, dilate blood vessels, improve micro circulation and enhance tissue nutrition.

• locomotor pain syndromes-acute and chronic
• Muscle atrophy and paresis
• retraining and strengthening muscles
• muscle contractures
• reflex increase in muscle tone (such as in osteoarthritis of the spine)
• reduction of swelling
• stimulation and improvement of superficial and deep circulation
• post-traumatic disorders and inflammatory soft tissue
• improvement of the functioning of organs in the abdomen, especially urinary incontinence

Trabert currents
It is a unidirectional current (unipolar) with an average frequency of about 143 Hz. Rectangular pulses with a duration of 2 milliseconds and 5 milliseconds during a break at a flow 15 - 25 mA are applied. This current has a strong analgesic effect, it reduces skeletal muscle tension, improves the blood flow. Segmental stimulation inhibits the sympathetic nervous system, it relaxes muscles, diminishes pain conduction.

• muscle pain
• increased muscle tone
• back pain in osteoarthritis and dyscopathy
• degenerative changes in joints
• inflammation of the periarticular
• post-traumatic and post-operative movement in the system
• neuralgia
• peripheral circulatory disorders

Kotz currents
Intermittent stimulation of AC with a frequency of 2500 Hz modulated to 50 Hz. The result of motorized excitatory currents is accurate inducing of deeper contractions of muscle fibres. Kotz currents act on voltage-dependent calcium channels, stimulating the opening of channels and the sending of calcium cations to the place of the connection of muscle to nerve synapses. The presence of Ca initiates the opening of the chemical acetylcholine channel, which enters the nerve endings. Acetylcholine attaches to a protein in muscle cells, enters the centre and contributes to the depolarization of muscle cells. The result of this chain of reactions is the excitation and contraction of muscle fibers. As Kotz currents belong to the low-frequency stimulation currents, they provide better performance in muscle strengthening, deeper penetration and are better tolerated.

• muscular atrophy
• reflex muscle tightness
• Post-traumatic and postoperative myocardial dysfunction
• "electrotraining" blood vessels
• Muscle electrogymnatics

Microwave diathermy
The treatment of mild thermotherapy used in diseases of the sinuses, neuralgies and joint pain.

TENS currents
TENS impulse current (Transcutaneus Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is composed of rectangular, symmetric or asymmetric, bipolar impulses. The pulse duration is short, but the amplitude is relatively high. The pulse frequency is in the range from several to tens of hertz. TENS is an excellent treatment of pain of various etiologies, including pain associated with cancer. Selective stimulation has analgesic effect, it improved local blood circulation and is also used to treat hard to heal wounds, swellings and hematomas. TENS can also be an indication from the potentially painful treatment or redressing  stretching of contracture tissues.
