ALEXANDROS BLETSAS PHYSIOTHERAPY CENTER
Physiotherapy devices with analgesic and anti-inflammatory action.
- Physiotherapy devices with analgesic and anti-inflammatory action.
- With thermal and mechanical properties.
- Ultrasound waves are widely used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
Ultrasound application produces two primary results:
Ultrasound waves heat up certain targeted areas to a high degree and in great depth. Tissues high in collagen, such as articular capsules, scar tissue, tendons and fascia, heat up to a greater degree.
- Reduction of muscle spasm.
- Acceleration of ATP production, the cells' energy currency.
- The cyclic AMP (cAMP) derived from ATP is a very important secondary messenger that takes part in a number of intracellular signal transduction pathways.
- More energy = faster recovery.
- Separation of collagen fibers, increased stretching ability of connective tissue, shrunken articular capsule and tendons.
- Reduction of adhesions and scar tissue.
- Increased cell membrane permeability to ions.
- Effect on protein synthesis and acceleration of wound healing.
- "Gentle massage", reduction of edema.
A technique applied alongside ultrasound waves to infuse molecules of chemical compounds for anti-inflammatory and analgesic action in the inflamed tissues.
- Cervical spine syndrome.
- Lower back pain, sciatica, intervertebral disc herniation.
- Shoulder periarthritis, tendinopathy (tendinitis).
- Muscle and tendon injuries, sprains.
- Hip and knee osteoarthritis.
- Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, muscle and tendon problems/dysfunctions.
