Electrophoresis is based on the impact of direct current and drugs on the body. During electrophoresis and using drugs, drug ions are administered into the body through the skin or mucous membrane. Drug ions introduced into the body first accumulate in the skin. Then they are gradually absorbed and get into the general blood circulation. Drug ions operate both locally and in the entire body.
Amplipulss therapy is recommended in case of ENT diseases, neuroses, hypertensive disease, diseases of the peripheral nervous system (intercostal neuralgia, radiculitis, etc.), diseases of digestive organs and lungs, excessive hand sweating, etc.
Also known as IFT, interferential electrotherapy uses low-frequency electrical stimulation to stimulate muscles, increase blood flow, and reduce pain. IFT is sometimes used for patients who dislike the sensation of TENS electrotherapy.
The effects of this therapeutic procedure are as follows
-Analgetsko dejstvo (smanjuje bol)
-Analgesic effect (reduces pain)
-Antiedematous (reduces swelling)
-Anti-inflammatory (reduces inflammation)
-Speeds up tissue regeneration (improves oxygen supply to tissues)
-Promotes osteogenesis (bone healing after fracture)
Interferential therapy can be used for the following conditions/symptoms: distortions, dislocations, fractures, contractures; arthrosis of peripheral joints, cervical and lumbar syndrome; rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis; bursitis, tendinitis, enthesitis, epicondylitis, myofascial pain; neuralgia, neuritis, etc.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation - TENS
One of the most common electrotherapy treatments, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) makes use of small devices which deliver pulses of electrical stimulation. The goal of the TENS machine is to stimulate sensory nerves to achieve pain relief and is often used for both nerve pain and chronic pain conditions.
Indications for the use of TENS: it is recommended in the control of acute, chronic, and neurogenic pain, neuralgia, radiculopathy, arthrosis, arthritis, subluxation, sports injuries, etc.
