TECAR therapy is mainly used by physiotherapists to promote rehabilitation or to prepare elite athletes and sportspeople for competitions and sporting events.
TECAR works by stimulating the body’s own physiological repair process by transferring high-frequency current through the tissues, oscillating between 300kHz and 1MHz, creating selective tissue hyperthermy. This process causes the blood to flow faster through the body, which means the muscles become more oxygenated. This oxygen brings healing properties to your body's natural systems.
TECAR is not only used by physiotherapists, but also by doctors as a complimentary treatment, used to enhance surgery. It can also be used for aesthetic purposes or skin tightening and body contouring. Furthermore, TECAR has also been used in veterinary medicine, to treat sports horses before and after races.
The benefits of TECAR
TECAR is a completely pain-free, non-invasive treatment that can be used by a range of people, to treat a range of ailments, aches and pains. TECAR has been known to accelerate pain reduction, especially in comparison to other electrotherapies available, such as ultrasound. Studies conducted over the last 30 years have shown that TECAR therapy’s effects will naturally stimulate tissue regeneration, reducing pain which can reduce recovery time following injuries or sporting events.
TECAR has been known to be beneficial for muscular, joint and lymph problems. It is also used extensively to treat issues such as traumatology and rheumatology.
TECAR therapy is also known to help general pain relief as it has natural anti-inflammatory effects. The technology can be used to treat acute or chronic conditions in the muscles and joints. The technology of TECAR can help break the circle of pain, inflammation and stiffness that many people suffer from. It can also help drain effusions, improving joint mobility in those who opt for this treatment.
