WHAT IS DIATHERMY
REDUCTION OF PAIN:
Iontophoresis with spa seaweeds:
A particularly effective treatment, unique to the Terme Luigiane, it utilizes spa algae, nitrogen fixing, sulfur-rich, having all water-soluble vitamins and proteins, it can be used as medication in substitution of anti-inflammatory drugs and it allows for excellent therapeutic analgesic, anti-inflammatory, decontracting results. It is reasonable to think that this medicament, by being sulfur rich, also allows for a anti-rheumatic action, by balancing the sulfur deficit of the cartilage, which most likely represents the primary cause of degenerative arthritis. This treatment avoids some side effects, caused by the notoriously anti-inflammatory drugs, such as dyspepsia, stomach pain, nausea, headache, general and local allergic reactions, etc.
Iontophoresis with medication
Arthrosis, consequences of joint distortions, surgical and post-traumatic edema, post-traumatic pains, bruises.
Electrotherapy diadynamic TENS
Neck pain and cervicobrachialgia, lower back pain and lumbosciatica, particularly indicated in chronic pain.
Painful affections in the presence of metallic fixation devices (prosthesis, osteosynthesis) that contraindicate the use of analgesic polarized current.
Electrical stimulation: faradic currents, rectangular currents pulses, Kotz microcurrents.
Post-traumatic and post-surgical muscle atrophy after plaster casts use.
Electrical stimulation: exponential currents and triangular currents.
Muscle atrophy in peripheral paralysis cause by lesions of the lower motor neuron (lesion of the nerves, ulnar, radial, etc.)
Coxartrosi, gonartrosi, rizartrosi spondiloartrosi, ritardi di consolidazione, esiti algici di traumi muscolari (tendinei e articolari), algodistrofie.
Coxarthrosis, gonarthrosis, spondylosis rhizarthrosis, nonunions, algic outcomes of muscle trauma (of the tendon and/or joint), algoneurodystrophy (RSD).
Back pain with predominant disc etiology.
Consequences of articular traumas, muscle injury (distractions, strains, tears), tendinitis, bursitis, skin ulcers, edema and muscle hematomas, keloids, insertional tendinopathy (epicondylitis, groin, etc.)
Post-traumatic and degenerative periarthritis of the shoulder, epicondylitis, post-traumatic joint stiffness, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, muscle contractures, consequences of joint distortions, small joints arthritis (hands and feet).
Muscle contractures, myalgia (muscle pain), neck pain and cervicobrachialgia, back pain, adherent scars, muscular atrophy.
