The currents that are applied in physiotherapy are of low frequency – the dynamic current, TENS, Trabert current , electrostimulation as well as the medium frequency currents, as it is the interferential current.
There are polars currents so that the application of them can be a bit unpleasant, the patient feeling a powerful sensation of sting or numbness.
TENS are currents of low frequency used in analgesic goal because have the capacity to stimulate selectively the thick nervous fibers.
The interferential currents determine the antialagic effects , to calm the pain, the mio relaxation effects and de contractures, excitomotor effect , vascular trophic effect, hyper merizant , resorbative. It is administrated by the physiotherapist and implies the be applied to the body of a amortization sponges which will create a light current to provoke a sting sensation of needles.
It represents the muscular stimulation with the help of the impulses by an electrical divice and are transmited with the help of special electrodes to the muscles that are stimulated which generate contractions to them. It can be used successfully to increase the muscular strength during the trainings and an efficient recovery for patients partially or totally mobilized and also an efficient method to recover the performance sportive.
Electrostimulation is recommended successfully with the goal of strengthen the muscles in case of ciphoses, scollosis and plat-footed.
It is a unique method of treatment which intensifies the manual modalities of the therapy ( lymphatic drainage manual massage)
Deep oscillation is a new instrument of physiotherapy which applies an intermittent electrostatic field with deep oscillations in order to stimulate the transport the interstitial liquid and its components and allow the tissue to regain it mobility and flexibility. The treatment is made with the help of available manually applicator.
Contraindications for deep oscillation: pacemaker; active cancer; infectious diseases; thrombosis and thrombophlebitis.
For hyperactive patients is reccommended a diet with out salt during the treatment.
