electrotherapy

 electrotherapy  involves medical treatment based on the action of electric currents as therapeutic agents for certain diseases. Stimulating current allows the skin to be treated with electrodes. The device is connected by means of voltage wires with small electrodes that are placed on the skin, at the level of the painful area.  ​​  Depending on the type of current, the shape and duration of the pulse, the duration of the pause, the frequency and the intensity, the stimulation current can have significant effects in:

  • Reduction until the disappearance of pathological muscle and joint pain.

  • Recovering, improving and maintaining mobility lost due to diseases of various etiologies and reintegration into normal physical activity.

  • Improving muscle strength and tone.

  • Low frequency stimulation  promotes the production of endorphins, which are part of our natural pain system.
