Electrotherapy utilises electric currents of various frequencies, intensities, and polarities for therapy. The general effect is analgesic (pain reduction), myorelaxant (reduces muscle tension), anti-edematous (anti-swelling), hyperemic (improves blood circulation), and improves nutrition of the tissues. It often even substitutes painkillers with its analgesic (pain reduction) effects.

Electrotherapy is suitable for:

  • treating the painful symptoms of the locomotor system
  • relaxing excess muscle tension
  • improves neuromuscular stimulation
  • improves blood circulation to the tissues, elimination of metabolites, especially of lactic acid
  • accelerates the lymphatic drainage, which reduces swelling

    Electrotherapy is not suitable for gravely and acutely ill persons.
