Physical therapy

Physical therapy is used for therapeutic and preventive reasons.

At our physical therapy room, we use electrotherapy, light therapy, heat therapy, ultrasound and massage methods to treat:

  • back pain, joint pain, bone and muscle pain;
  • complications and consequences of bone fractures, dislocations, ligament strains, bruises and other types of trauma;
  • consequences of neurological diseases, for instance, stroke, etc.;
  • cardiovascular diseases;
  • cicatrices and scar tissue;
  • lung diseases (bronchitis, bronchial asthma, lung inflammation);
  • chronic diseases of gastrointestinal tract, ulcers;
  • diseases of leg blood vessels (dilated veins, vein inflammation);
  • lymphostasis;
  • diseases of ears, nose and throat;
  • urinary incontinence;
  • etc.

As a result of physical therapy procedures:

  • pain is reduced;
  • oedema is reduced;
  • inflammationis reduced;
  • absorption processes in the tissue are stimulated;
  • metabolism is stimulated;
  • movements are restored after trauma;
  • immunity of the body is increased.

Contraindications of physical therapy (when it must not be used):

  • psychiatric diseases
  • pulmonary tuberculosis in acute phase
  • arterial hypertension of II-III grade
  • severe atherosclerosis
  • acute phase of an infection (including sexually transmitted infections)
  • chronic heart failure of III-IV class
  • oncology
  • benign tumours (uterine myoma, mastopathy, thyroid nodules)
  • febrile temperature
  • bleeding of various aetiology
  • metal bodies within the area affected by physical therapy, cardiac pacemakers
  • cachexia
  • pregnancy

Extended description of equipment in physical therapy:

Amplipulse (MSMS) analgesic, neurostimulating, spasmolythic effect: myalgia, radiculopathy and pain of other origin, hypotonic muscles, diseases of internal organs (gastric atony, biliary dyskinesia, atonic and spasmolythic constipation), urinary incontinence of a neurogenic nature.

Darsonvalization circulation improving effect, improves tissue metabolism, trophic: skin diseases, loss of hair, sensory disorders (hypo-, hyper- esthesia), mild analgesia, increases muscle tone (uterine prolapse of I degree, urinary incontinence caused by sphincter weakness), Raynauld’s disease of 1st and 2nd stage, venous insufficiency, varicose veins, haemorrhoids.

Ultra high frequency (UHF) treats inflammation, oedema: acute otitis, maxillary sinusitis, pyoderma, boils, hidradenitis, trophic ulcers, post-injection and post-surgical infiltrates, encephalitis, inflammatory and traumatic neuritis, causalgia, neuralgia, cystitis, urethritis, prostatitis, myositis, epicondilitis, tendovaginitis, arthritis, bone fractures, polyarthritis. Long-term therapy is prohibited, because it stimulates proliferation (adhesions).

Magnetic therapy anti-oedematous, hypotensive effect - used in cases of chronic processes: thrombophlebitis, venous insufficiency, post-traumatic oedemas, bruises, neuritis, plexititis, radiculopathies, degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

UVA locally: rhinitis, stomatitis, otitides, boils, achalasias. General: psoriasis, pyoderma.

Ultrasound increases metabolism, enzyme secretion: in cases of chronic diseases (degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system, torpid bronchitis, neuralgias, osteophytes).

Galvanisation (medicinal electrophoresis) has the effect of injected medicinal products.
