:

Electric impulses are used to treat several musculoskeletal diseases and neurological diseases. The procedure uses the stimulating effect of mixed electric currents of various intensity. Electric impulses applied to a certain parts of body increase congestion of the treated part, especially painful big joints. It has significant analgesic effect, i.e. it relieves pain and relaxes and strengthens muscles at the same time.

Procedures

Diadynamic

Electrotherapy procedure that uses the stimulating effect of mixed electric currents (galvanic, faradic or others). The procedure increase congestion of the treated part, especially painful big joints. It has analgesic effects.

Therapeutic effects:

  • Pain relief
  • Inflammation relief
  • Relaxation and strengthening of muscles

Recommended for:

  • Musculoskeletal diseases (spinal and joint pain)
  • Neurological diseases

Duration of procedure: according to medical prescription

Medical prescription needed: yes

Interferential currents

Interferential currents are used to treat musculoskeletal system. Alternated currents with medium frequency are applied by a device to stimulate neural and muscular tissue. They are applied on back, upper and lower limbs, urine bladder.

Therapeutic effects:

  • Pain relief
  • Relaxation of muscles
  • Improvement of tissue congestion
  • Stimulation of muscles

Recommended for:

  • Pain of neurological origin
  • Inflammatory rheumatic changes
  • Diseases of spine, joints of upper and lower limbs

Duration of procedure: according to medical prescription

Medical prescription needed: yes

Diathermy

Diathermy is a form of use of high-frequency currents for deep heating of tissues. The basic effect of the high-frequency currents is heat generation deep in tissues.

Therapeutic effects:

  • Dilatation of veins increases congestion
  • Nutrition of tissues is improved
  • Local and general immunity is improved
  • Heat has sedative effects and reduces pain

Recommended for:

  • Musculoskeletal diseases (e.g. chronic inflammatory and degenerative conditions of joints, conditions after injuries)
  • Nervous diseases (e.g. spine)
  • Urological diseases (chronic conditions of kidney inflammation)
  • Gynaecologic diseases (e.g. conditions after inflammations)
  • Skin diseases (e.g. purulent skin diseases, erysipelas)
  • Internal diseases (chronic inflammations of airways, asthma)

Duration of procedure: according to medical prescription

Medical prescription needed: yes

Magnetic therapy

It uses the healing effect of permanent or pulsing magnetic fields that multiply permeability of cellular membranes. Metabolism is improved, as well as congestion and oxidization of the body parts, to which the magnetic field is applied. A client is lying on a magnetic mat or has his/ her limbs in a magnetic applicator.

Therapeutic effects:

  • It relieves and eliminates pain
  • It dilates veins
  • It has anti-inflammatory effect
  • It has healing effect
  • It supports metabolism

Recommended for:

  • Conditions after injuries
  • Chronic, inflammatory and degenerative musculoskeletal conditions
  • Pain of neural origin (neuralgia) etc.

Duration of procedure: according to medical prescription

Medical prescription needed: yes

Ultra sound therapy

Ultra sound device generates ultra sound waves that penetrate deep in tissues and vibrate cells. Tissue converts mechanical energy into thermal energy, temperature deep in muscular tissues increases, and the micro-massage effect occurs at the cellular level, too. Intensity and therapeutic doses are adjusted according to indications. A physiotherapist applies the ultra sound therapy by circling the head of the device directly on the treated spot.

Therapeutic effects:

  • Pain relief
  • Cramp relief
  • Improvement of congestion
  • Improvement of nutrition and regeneration ability of tissues
  • Significant relaxation of muscles

Recommended for:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic inflammatory joint diseases
  • Pain of neural origin (neuralgia)
  • Neuritis
  • Gynaecological problems and many other diseases

Duration of procedure: 5-10 min. /according to medical prescription/

Medical prescription needed: yes

Bioptron

Bioptron belongs to light therapy procedures that use favourable features of natural daylight without ultra-violet radiation and the potential harmful effects. It is applied directly to skin to support regeneration abilities of organism. It helps activate the inherent healing potential of a body. It is used locally under the supervision of a physiotherapist.

Therapeutic effects:

  • Relaxation and pain relief (throat, head, injuries, rheumatic pain)
  • It improves healing of wounds
  • It strengthens muscles

Recommended for:

  • Vertebrogenic pain syndrome
  • Skin diseases
  • Inflammatory processes
  • Rheumatic pain
  • After fractures
  • Overstrained muscles, etc.

Duration of procedure: according to medical prescription

Medical prescription needed: yes

Solux

Solux is a method that applies infra-red light locally to make the thermal effect increase immunity of a body. The irradiation has various Therapeutic effects. It is mostly used for chronic airways diseases (asthma, allergies, bronchitis, etc.)

Therapeutic effects:

  • Warming and heating of tissues
  • It relieves pain and swelling

Recommended for:

  • Vertebrogenic pain syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Arthrosis
  • Skin diseases
  • Inflammations
  • Asthma, bronchitis

Duration of procedure: according to medical prescription

Medical prescription needed: yes

Laser treatment

Laser creates light with unusual characteristics. The laser ray can concentrate huge energy on a small area. The principle of laser is based on physical knowledge to generate light that does not occur in nature. The laser treatment can be used for many purposes, in the spa it is used as non-invasive method.
