Tecartherapy, as know as diatherm, it´s a technique that use a current (radiofrequency) generated from inside the body to accelerate the natural organism recovery.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It´s a manual technique that takes advantage of the increase in temperature in localized areas. It uses two systems, the resistive and the capacitive. The resistive system concentrates on those tissues with greater resistance such as bones, joints or tendons, as well as on fibrotic areas, while the capacitive system focuses on the subcutaneous areas.
No, the patient perceives this energy at the corporal level as a pleasant and even relaxing heat. The treatment with this technique drive the current to a very localized part of the body and at totally painless frequencies.
WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS?
Combining the massage of the physiotherapist with this technology can effectively treat injuries of the musculoskeletal system such as:
- muscle tear
- ankle sprain
- low back pain
WHAT EFFECTS DOES IT HAVE?
- Reduces pain and inflammation
- Reduces recovery time significantly
- Increase range of motion
It´s a latest technology that used as an analgesic treatment, anti-edema, anti-inflammatory and relaxing muscle.
