(Capacitive Resistive Electric Transfer)
Popular in Italy since 1996 (I have been using it since that very same year) TECAR therapy is an electro-medical treatment used to reduce pain, to speed up recovery time in case of post-traumatic injuries (even if ACUTE) and in case of chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
“Chronic musculoskeletal pain” is pain which is recurrent in certain periods and while doing particular activities or which is persistent and ongoing over time.
In case of post-traumatic injuries TECAR therapy can be useful from the very first days of rehabilitation up to the most advanced stage of the process.
The electromagnetic field created between the “return plate” (neutral electrode) and the active electrode (capacitive and/or resistive) helps stimulate the electric charges already INSIDE THE BODY so as to convey them to the most painful and/or inflammed area. This allows for greater blood flow resulting from vasodilation and greater lymphatic drainage.
This way the body itself uses its own energy and activates “reparative” and anti-inflammatory processes intrinsic to biological tissues.
TECAR therapy, unlike many others, allows to easily reach the deepest layers of body tissues because it uses the electric charges already inside the body and NOT exclusively energy provided from the outside.
– Muscle tears
– Groin pain
– Neck pain (myo-tensive neck pain, whiplash)
– Back pain
– Low back pain
– Carpal tunnel syndrome
– Tension headache
– Plantar fasciitis
– Shoulder rotator cuff inflammation
– Pain reduction
– Inflammation reduction
– Joint range recovery
– Scar treatment
– Adhesion treatment
– Lymphatic drainage
Treatment with TECAR devices thins out mucus and reduces inflammation by decreasing the typical symptoms of sinusitis.
– Tissue drainage action
– Functional stimulation of peripheral circulation
In addition to all the previously mentioned cases that can also occur in the sports field, treatments:
Can be preventive
improve tissue oxygenation and rebalance metabolic activity
Can be pre-event
Better tissue oxygenation thus positively enhancing performance.
Can be post-event
quickly reduce muscle fatigue by draining and eliminating catabolic substances.
– Oedema drainage
– Reabsorption of hematomas
– Tissue healing
– Skin smoothing
– Wrinkle softening
– Firming up neck and décolleté
– Double chin reduction
– Toning up buttocks, thighs, stomach and breasts
– Firming up arms
– Skin smoothing
– Improving skin flexibility and elasticity
– Reduction of fatty nodules and skin fibrosis.
– Pacemakers or other electronic devices
– Injured skin
– Cancer pathologies in progress or cured (as a precaution only about 6 to 7 years after declared healing).
– Children under the age of 11 (precaution).
