Tecar therapy is an advanced therapeutic technique used in medicine, rehabilitation and sports medicine to relieve pain, improve function and accelerate the healing process. This therapy uses high-frequency electromagnetic waves to stimulate tissue regeneration and improve blood circulation. The working principle of Tecar therapy is that electromagnetic energy is transferred to the tissue through specialized applicators, which generate heat deep in the tissue. There are two types of applicators: capacitive and resistive. Capacitive applicators are used for superficial tissues, while resistive applicators are used for deeper tissues. This combination allows the therapy to work at different tissue depths. Tecar therapy is used to treat various conditions, including sports injuries such as sprains, strains of muscles and tendons, as well as for rehabilitation after surgery or injuries. It is also used to relieve pain in conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis, fibromyalgia and back pain.

The success of treatment with Tecar therapy may vary depending on the specific condition and individual response of the patient, however, many patients notice improvements already after the first session. The duration of treatment can be different, from several weeks to several months, depending on the severity of the condition and reaction to therapy. The main benefits of Tecar therapy include rapid pain relief, reduction of inflammation, acceleration of the healing process, increase of range of motion and improvement of muscle function. Also, this therapy is painless and non-invasive, making it a popular choice for many patients.

Tecar therapy can be used for a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Sports injuries: Like sprains, muscle and tendon strains, ligament tears, tennis elbow, and the like.
  • Orthopedic conditions: such as arthritis, arthrosis, bursitis, tendinitis, and back pain. Neurological conditions: such as neuritis, neuropathy, and peripheral neuropathies.
  • Postoperative rehabilitation: after surgery on muscles, tendons, ligaments or bones to speed up the healing process and improve function.
  • Degenerative conditions: such as degenerative joint or muscle diseases.
  • Rehabilitation after injury: such as injuries from car accidents, falls or sports injuries.

Tecar therapy can be tailored to different patient needs and used as part of a treatment plan in combination with other therapies or modalities.

Electrotherapy is one of the therapeutic techniques used in physical therapy. It uses low-frequency, low-intensity electrical current to stimulate nerve and muscle structures in the body. This technique is widely used in various medical conditions.

One of the main goals of electrotherapy is to reduce pain. Through the use of electrical impulses, electrotherapy can reduce various types of pain, including acute and chronic pain. It can also be beneficial in reducing swelling and inflammation, improving circulation and speeding up the healing process.

Electrotherapy also has a significant application in improving muscle function. Through electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), electrotherapy directly activates muscles, helping to preserve and improve muscle strength and function. This technique is often used in rehabilitation after muscle injuries or surgeries.

In addition, electrotherapy can also be used to improve nerve function. Electrical impulses stimulate nerve fibers, improving the flow of information between the nervous system and muscles. It is especially useful in conditions such as peripheral neuropathy or nerve injuries.

Electrotherapy can be used for the following conditions and disorders:

  • Pain, including acute and chronic pain – headaches, muscle and joint pain, neuropathic pain and other types of pain conditions.
  • Muscle disorders – after muscle injuries, muscle weakness, muscle imbalance, muscular dystrophy and other similar conditions.
  • Neurological disorders – peripheral neuropathy, paresis or paralysis after a stroke, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders.
  • Swelling and inflammation – electrical impulses help improve circulation, reduce swelling and speed up the healing process for injuries, surgeries or inflammatory conditions.
  • Rheumatological disorders – arthritis, fibromyalgia and spondylosis.

These are just some examples of conditions in which electrotherapy can be applied. It is important that the therapy is carried out under the supervision of an expert physiotherapist or medical staff in order to select the appropriate technique and set the correct electrical stimulation parameters for each patient and their specific condition.

In the Chirofizikal clinic, electrotherapy is applied as part of a holistic approach to treatment and rehabilitation. Electrotherapy is one of the key therapeutic techniques we use to help our patients improve their health and recovery. Our team of expert physiotherapists carefully approaches each patient, assesses their individual needs and adjusts a therapeutic plan that includes electrotherapy.

We guide patients through the process of electrotherapy, providing them with comfort, safety and attention during the treatment. By regularly and correctly using electrotherapy, together with other therapeutic modalities, we work to achieve optimal results for our patients and their well-being.

At the Chirofizikal office, electrotherapy is an integrated part of our comprehensive approach to treatment, providing patients with the opportunity to make significant improvements in their health. We believe in the power of electrotherapy as an effective therapeutic tool and work wholeheartedly to achieve the best results for every patient who comes to us.
