  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis).
  • Injured ligaments, muscle strain (pulled muscles), bursitis, epicondylitis.
  • Stiff joints needing mobilisation.

 

Results:

  • Increase of the temperature, of the flow of blood and lymph.

  • Relief from stiffness of joints, pain and decrease of muscle spasms.
  • Decrease of inflammatory infiltrates and edemas.
