Electrotherapy builds on the principle of nerve stimulation and muscle strain relaxation. It is used to treat muscle pain and to prevent swelling. Specific types and uses of electric energy depend on the patient´s diagnosis and state of health.
Electrotherapy uses the therapeutic effect of various forms of electrical energy, direct currents, various impulses, and currents with low or medium frequency. It has analgesic effects and improves blood circulation and soft tissue nourishment. This form of therapy also increases metabolism within tissues, and directly influences organ functions in the entire body.
