Tecar Therapy

TECAR therapy is a combination of contact diathermy and electrotherapy, applying electromagnetic energy to biological tissue. The electromagnetic frequency applied originates from the radiofrequency spectrum. The therapeutic wavelength spectrum ranges from 300 KHz to 1.2 MHZ. 

TECAR therapy induces vasodilation through heat, which leads to an increase of the exchange of substances, resulting in drainage of the inflamed area and an influx of reparative cells. TECAR therapy also helps with pain reduction through its stimulation of endorphin production.

 

TECAR therapy is most frequently used to treat: 

  • Bruises and sprains

  • Post-surgery rehabilitation

  • Sports traumas

  • Muscle and tendon disorders

  • Neuropathies

  • Scar tissue

  • Spine and peripheral joint disorders

  • Vascular and lymphatic system disorders

  • Orthopaedic disorders of the peripheral nervous system

  • Acute and chronic pain
