amplipulse therapy – a method of therapeutic intervention of alternating current modulated by frequency, i.e. sinusoidal modulated current (SMC), applied to various areas of the patient body. The procedure helps to create the conditions for removal of pain syndrome and relaxation of tensed muscles. SMC also stimulates fat metabolism in the human body, activates functional state of sympatic-adrenal system, improves blood supply to brain, kidneys, and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Extensively used for electric stimulation.
diadynamic therapy – a method of therapeutic intervention with diadynamic alternating current of low frequency and low voltage. Diadynamic current has an analgesic effect, decreases swelling, congestive phenomena in the affected area, facilitates resolution, reduces muscle spasms, improves collateral blood circulation, has anti-inflammatory and neuro-stimulating effect – reduction of increased muscle tension, improved micro-stimulation and venous drainage, decrease of tissue swelling.
electrophoresis with direct, impulse current – a combination of current and medication introduced to the body via current. Electrophoresis is used for prevention and treatment of various diseases and syndromes: diseases of gastro-intestinal tract, lungs, kidneys and joints; neurological symptoms of spine osteochondrosis; nervous system diseases accompanied by pain syndrome; syndromes requiring electric stimulation of internal organs; treatment of phantom pain; urologic and gynecologic diseases; parodontium diseases.
electrostimulation of neuromuscular structures in the body, limbs – a method of physiotherapeutic treatment based on the use of electric current to restore muscles after traumas, significant loads. During electrostimulation electric impulse is sent to the particular area of muscle fiber using a point electrode. The response to such impulse is contraction of the stimulated muscle.
general, local galvanization Galvanization stimulates regulatory function of nervous and endocrine systems, normalizes secretory and motor function of digestive tract, stimulates trophic and energetic processes in the organism, improves body responsiveness, resistance to external exposure, in particular, increases protection function of skin. General galvanization increases the number of leucocytes in blood, slightly increases erythrocyte sedimentation reaction, improves haemodynamics, decreases the number of heart beats, boosts metabolism (especially carbohydrates and proteins).
interferential current therapy is a synergistic vibration in the human body resulting from overlaying (interference) of two independent high frequency current. Normally the current sent via one electrode has constant frequency, while the current in the other electrode has alternating frequency. The procedure mechanism consists in excitation of deep receptor tissue structures. The effect from such stimulation significantly depends on the current parameters. Thus, low frequencies (up to 50 Hz) cause excitation of neuromuscular structures. 50 – 100 Hz current improves tissue trophism, blood circulation, tones the muscles. Also, the technique has an alagesic effect, slight miorelaxing effect and can reduce the swelling of preineural tissues, normalize work of vegetative nervous system.
