WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
PHYSICAL THERAPY IS PART OF THE PHYSICAL MEDICINE AND REHABILITATION AND CONSTITUTES THE SET OF METHODS IMPLEMENTED BY THE PHYSIOTHERAPIST, TO TREAT A NUMBER OF DISEASES RELATED TO A DISORDER OF MOTOR SKILLS, HIGHER CORTICAL FUNCTIONS, CARDIO-RESPIRATORY TRACT AND VISCERAL (MAINLY SPHINCTER MUSCLES). THE FIRST TYPE PHYSIOTHERAPY REHABILITATION TECHNIQUES WERE BORN AT THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY, INSPIRED BY THE PROGRESSIVE ADVANCEMENT OF NEUROLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE. CURRENTLY THERE are NUMEROUS SCHOOLS of PHYSIOTHERAPY, which NORMALLY are SPLIT on the BASIS of using: -PASSIVE PHYSIOTHERAPY TECHNIQUES -ACTIVE PHYSIOTHERAPY TECHNIQUES -techniques of NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF WAVE FORMS USED IN PHYSIOTHERAPY?
PHYSIOTHERAPY waveforms are divided into: -the MOTO-EXCITING CURRENTS for TONING NORMAL INNERVATED MUSCLES are THOSE RELATED to BOTH AESTHETIC and REHABILITATION of HEALTHY MUSCLES. -BIPHASIC RECTANGULAR CURRENT -CURRENT OF KOT -FARADIC CURRENT THE MOTO-EXCITING CURRENTS FOR DENERVATED MUSCLES KEEP ACTIVE THOSE MUSCLES THAT DUE TO AN INJURY OR A SERIOUS PATHOLOGY HAVE LOST CONNECTION WITH THE NERVE THAT CONTROLS THEM. STIMULATION OF THESE IMMOBILISED MUSCLES IS PREPARATORY TO A BETTER RECOVERY OF LIMB AFTER AN INTERVENTION, OR TO PREVENT A PROGRESSIVE ATROPHY OF THE SAME. - RECTANGULAR ALTERNATIVE (LARGE) - TRIANGULAR - EXPONENTIAL ANALGESIC CURRENTS ATTENUATE THE PAIN BY ACTING ON NEURAL STRUCTURES INVOLVED IN THE PERCEPTION AND TRANSMISSION OF STIMULI; THEY LESSEN PAIN SENSITIVITY BY REMOVING HALOGEN SUBSTANCES FROM THE AFFECTED AREA AND THE RELEASE OF ENDORPHINS. -T.E.N.S. -DIADYNAMIC -BIPOLAR INTERFERENTIAL IONOPHORETIC AND GALVANIC CURRENTS ARE APPLIED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER DRUGS IN THE FORM OF CREAMS OR OILS AND INCREASE THE ABSORPTION BY THE SKIN, THEREBY THEY HAVE THE FOLLOWING EFFECTS: ANALGESIC, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, MUSCLE RELAXANT, RE-CALCIFICANT, SCLEROTHERAPIC (CLOSELY RELATED TO THE TYPE OF DRUG USED, THE ACTUAL AMOUNT THAT GOES THROUGH THE SKIN, THE LENGTH OF THE APPLICATION AS WELL AS THE CONCENTRATION OF THE SOLUTION AND THE SIZE OF THE ELECTRODE SURFACES). -IONOPHORESIS
WHAT IS ELECTROTHERAPY?
ELECTROSTIMULATION PRODUCES A MUSCLE CONTRACTION BY APPLYING AN ELECTRIC PULSE; THIS IS BECAUSE BETWEEN THE ELECTRODES APPLIED, AN ELECTRICAL FIELD IS FORMED WHICH REACHING THE NEUROMOTRIC PLATES CAUSES A CONTRACTION OF THE MUSCLE SUBJECTED TO STIMULATION. SINCE the '70 is USED SUCCESSFULLY IN SPORTS, for the EXCELLENT RESULTS IT PRODUCES AS A'Comrade' OF ATHLETES' TRAINING. TODAY IT is APPLIED EFFECTIVELY IN the FIELD of aesthetic medicine and physiotherapy. EVERY MEDICAL DEVICE PROGRAMS ARE CREATED USING PROPER WAVEFORM MODULATION, SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE EFFECT OF THE WAVEFORMS TO FIND OUT WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR US. IN SPORTS, AESTHETICS AND ANTALGIC ELECTRO-STIMULATION DEVICES YOU WILL FIND THE FOLLOWING WAVEFORMS: - BIPHASIC RECTANGULAR: MOTO-EXCITING CURRENT FOR NORMAL INNERVATED MUSCLES ARE THOSE AIMED AT TONING BOTH AESTHETIC AND REHABILITATION OF HEALTHY MUSCLES. - T.E.N.S.: ANALGESIC CURRENTS ATTENUATE THE PAIN BY ACTING ON NEURAL STRUCTURES INVOLVED IN THE PERCEPTION AND TRANSMISSION OF STIMULI. - IONOPHORESIS: IONOPHORETIC AND GALVANIC CURRENTS ARE APPLIED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER DRUGS IN THE FORM OF CREAMS OR OILS AND INCREASE THE ABSORPTION BY THE SKIN.
WHAT IS MAGNETOTHERAPY?
MAGNETOTHERAPY IS A FORM OF PHYSIOTHERAPY THAT, USING THE INTERACTION OF MAGNETIC FIELDS WITH THE BODY, STIMULATES THE BLOOD CIRCULATION IN THE TREATED AREA, GENERATING A GREATER INFLUX OF NUTRIENTS THAT INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR SELF-HEALING OF OUR ORGANISM, TISSUE REGENERATION AND OSTEOGENESIS. MAGNETOTHERAPY PROMOTES AN ACCELERATION OF ALL REPAIRERS PHENOMENE WITH DISTINCT BIORIGENERANTE ACTION, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTION. ANTIPHLOGISTIC ACTION CARRIED OUT BY MAGNETOTHERAPY ACTIVATES THE CELL MEMBRANE REPOLARIZATION PROCESS IN ORDER TO RECHARGE AND REGENERATE CELLS DEVOID OF VITAL ENERGY AND BRING THEM BACK SO THE STATE OF WELL-BEING.
WHAT IS MAGNETOTHERAPY AT HIGH FREQUENCY?
HIGH FREQUENCY MAGNETOTHERAPY, ALSO KNOWN AS RADIO FREQUENCY magnetotherapy, is BASED on the emission of RADIO WAVES in frequencies between 18 and 900 MHZ IN SHORT PULSES. CLINICAL STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT THESE RADIO WAVES HAVE THE ABILITY TO ENHANCE THE IMMUNE RESPONSE OF SINGLE CELLS, THUS HELPING THEM TO FIND AN APPROPRIATE BALANCE. ALSO HIGH FREQUENCY MAGNETOTHERAPY BY THINNING THE BLOOD, IMPROVING CIRCULATION, AND STILL ACTS CUSHIONING INFLAMMATIONS, HOWSOEVER CAUSED. IT IS OBVIOUS, HOWEVER, THAT IF THE CAUSE IS STILL UNDERWAY (FOR EXAMPLE, A BACTERIAL INFECTION, OR A SLIPPED DISC, ETC), MAGNETIC THERAPY MAY NOT ELIMINATE THE CAUSE BUT ONLY NUANCING. RADIO WAVES GENERATED BY THE EQUIPMENT PENETRATE DEEP INTO TISSUES, ALLOWING YOU TO TREAT EVEN THE INTERNAL ORGANS. THE ELECTRO-MAGNETOTHERAPY AND MAGNETOTHERAPY HAVE SIMILAR APPLICATIONS AND PURPOSES, EXCEPT THAT THE FORMER IS MORE SUITABLE FOR THE TREATMENT OF SOFT TISSUE (MUSCLE, NERVE, BLOOD, ETC.), WHILE THE SECOND HAS MORE APPLICATIONS ON HARD TISSUES (BONES, CALCIFICATION, OSTEOPOROSIS, ARTHRITIS, DELAYS ETC) AND THEIR DISEASES.
WHAT IS T.E.N.S. THERAPY?
TENS (TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRICAL NERVE STIMULATION) DEVICE FOR PAIN THERAPY IS USEFUL IN SITUATIONS INVOLVING PAIN (RHEUMATIC CHARACTER ONES AND POSTOPERATIVE ONES). PAIN IS AN INDIVIDUAL PHENOMENON, NOT STANDARDIZED, SO DEAL WITH IT BY ALL MEANS THAT PROGRESS AND TECHNOLOGY MAKE AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE. TRANSCUTANEOUS NERVE STIMULATION IS RUNNING A DIRECT EFFECT ON PERIPHERAL NERVES, WHEREBY: -STIFLES PAIN IMPULSE; -INCREASE THE PRODUCTION OF ENDORPHINS THROUGH LIGHT TWITCHES ARRIVE TO SOOTHE THE PAIN.
WHAT IS IONOPHORESIS?
IONOPHORESIS IS A TECHNIQUE OF LOCALIZED DRUG MEDICATION, AS IT ALLOWS YOU TO CONCENTRATE ON A SMALL AREA A LARGE AMOUNT OF MEDICINE BOTH IN THE SUPERFICIAL LAYERS OF THE SKIN, AND IN DEPTH. THE FLOW OF ELECTRIC CURRENT THAT WE INTRODUCE INTO THE HUMAN BODY TURNED OUT TO BE A GREAT SYSTEM FOR TRANSPORT MEDICINAL SUBSTANCES, WHICH TRANSFORMED INTO IONS, WITH THEIR POSITIVE CHARGES, ARE PART OF THE CURRENT FLOW OF OTHER IONS PENETRATING THROUGH THE SKIN SURFACE IN THE INTIMACY OF BODY TISSUES. APPLICATIONS:TREATMENT OF JOINT PAIN, CERVICAL, LUMBAGO, TENDONITIS, SPRAINS AND INFLAMMATION, WHICH CAN RELIEVE OBTAINING A RELAXING EFFECT.
WHAT IS ULTRASOUND THERAPY?
ULTRASOUND THERAPY IS A THERAPEUTIC PHYSIOTHERAPY TECHNIQUE THAT USES THE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS PRODUCED BY ULTRASOUND. IT IS A SURFACE MASSAGE TECHNIQUE DESIGNED TO TRANSMIT MECHANICAL VIBRATIONS FROM A PIEZOELECTRIC HEAD (FROM THE GREEK PIEZO = PRESS) TO BODY TISSUES. THE USE IS PARTICULARLY SUITABLE FOR ARTOPATIE, BRUISES, CALCIFICATIONS, PERIARTHRITIS, SPRAINS, AESTHETICS (CELLULITE), TENDINITIS, EPICONDYLITIS, CONTRACTIONS.
WHAT IS PRESSURE THERAPY?
PRESSURE THERAPY EQUIPMENT EXERCES A POSITIVE PRESSURE, USED FOR THE TREATMENT OF VENOUS AND LYMPHATIC DISORDERS. THE PRESS THERAPY IS NO LONGER A TOOL, BUT IT HAS BECOME A MAIN METHOD IN TREATMENTS THAT TEND TO SOLVE AND IMPROVE THE VENOLINPHATIC STASIS AND THE CONSEQUENTIAL DEBILITATING CONDITION. USING PRESSURE THERAPY IS FREQUENT IN SURGERY, PHLEBOLOGY, AESTHETIC MEDICINE, REHABILITATION AND PLASTIC SURGERY. SEQUENTIAL PRESSURE THERAPY DEVICE PERFORMS A PROGRESSIVE AND HOMOGENEOUS PRESSURE FROM THE PERIPHERY OF THE LIMB UP TO ITS BASE, OR VICE VERSA FOR A PROXIMAL PRESSURE.
