Physical therapy or physiotherapy treatments is always an additional method in the complex therapy of serious diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, the human musculoskeletal system, superficial soft tissues and mucous membranes, postoperative and post-traumatic complications.

Restoration of the lost functional usefulness of a tissue injured during a trauma or inflammatory disease with the use of physiotherapy (physiotherapy) is an important measure of prevention of disability-leading lesions in various diseases of the neurological and neurosurgical type.

Elimination of swelling, inflammation, pain, restore range of motion in joints and muscles accelerated by the use of physiotherapy (physical therapy).

The most common diseases in organs requiring further physical therapy (physiotherapy):

Elimination of swelling, inflammation, pain, restore range of motion in joints and muscles greatly accelerated by the use of physical therapy (physiotherapy) in the form of its various techniques.

Analgesic effect of currents during physical therapy (physiotherapy) for various traumatic injuries of tissue and musculoskeletal system helps to reduce swelling and stagnation in the lesion.

Improved regional circulation, rhythmic contraction of the muscles and increase metabolic processes in the tissues, a positive effect on the process of resorption and are the basis of the expressed anti-inflammatory effect of physical therapy (physiotherapy).

The procedure for the assessment of nerve conduction and subsequent physical therapy (physiotherapeutic procedures) is a neurostimulation and a stimulation with neuritis, polyneuritis and neuropathy.

Physical therapy (physiotherapy) is assigned with chronic diseases with pain syndrome, joint contractures, severe muscular hypotrophy. Sinusoidal modulated currents (SMC) as a method of physical therapy (physiotherapy) are used to relieve hypertonicity of muscles, stimulation of muscles and nerves.

Another form of physical therapy (physiotherapy) is used for medicinal electrophoresis and phonophoresis. At the same time during physical therapy (physiotherapy) great importance is to the unidirectionality of the influence of currents and medications, increased analgesic and vasodilating effect.

The elimination of pain, tingling and restoration of sensitivity in the fingers in the treatment of neuritis of the median nerve in the case of carpal tunnel syndrome is accelerated by the use of UHF physiotherapy.

Physical therapy (physiotherapy) are also used for electrostimulation of nerves (restoring sensitivity) and muscle (stimulation of contractions).


Physiotherapy types

Physiotherapy types in our outpatient clinic:

  • sinusoidal modulated current (SMC)
  • galvanic current (GT)
  • electroanalgesia
  • darsonvalization
  • electrophoresis, phonophoresis
  • myostimulation
  • neurostimulation
  • infrared radiation (IT)
  • electromagnetic field of ultrahigh frequency (UHF)
  • diadinamotherapy (DDT)
  • multiwave lock system (MLS) laser therapy
Elimination of pain, paresthesia, tingling and restoration of sensitivity in the leg in the treatment of the sciatic nerve neuritis is accelerated by the use of physiotherapy (sinusoidal modulated current (SMC) physiotherapy).
Massage apparatus by electrostimulation (neuromuscular transcutaneous stimulation) delivering a low frequency current with very weak voltage. This action involves the contraction and the relaxation of the local muscle to prevent, treat and relieve aching legs, to help and stimulate the blood circulation, chronic pains, backache etc.

Infrared radiation is effectively applied in our clinic as a physical therapy (physiotherapy) for local warming therapy. Infrared lamp emits infrared rays that penetrate deeply under the skin. The result of this procedure, the skin is warmed, dilates blood vessels, stimulates blood flow.

Blood brings substances to restore and nourish body tissues and removes metabolic products more quickly. This means that physical therapy (physiotherapy) with use of the device of infrared therapy can reduce muscle spasm and ease muscle aches in a patient.

The use of infrared therapy in the treatment process can reduce muscle spasm and ease muscle pain.
MLS uses two therapeutic wavelengths: 808 nanometer wavelengths with anti-edemic and anti-inflammatory effect and 905 nanometer wavelengths with analgesic effect. Multiwave lock system (MLS) laser therapy reach deeper into tissues and nerves that are affected by pain and inflammation.


Indications for physiotherapy

Possible states for the application of infrared therapy:

  • application for sporadic or chronic muscle pains, dry muscles and joints
  • application for pain in the lumbar region (lumbago)
  • application at chill
  • preparations for application at another session, such as a massage
  • application for sprains and bruises
  • pain killing effect, for example in connection with rheumatic ailments
The use of infrared therapy in the treatment process can reduce muscle spasm and ease muscle pain.
