Acronym of capacitive and resistive energy transfer, tecar therapy is an innovative treatment that finds application in the physiotherapy and rehabilitative veterinary field for the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases.
This physical therapy is a form of thermotherapy, i.e. a method that generates heat within the body tissues for therapeutic purposes. It is considered as an endogenous thermotherapy, as the heat is not irradiated from the outside, but is produced directly inside the tissues through the application of a high frequency variable electric field.

ADVANTAGES:

– FAST TO APPLY
EASY TO USE
– NON-TOXIC
– NON-INVASIVE
– PAINLESS
– RAPID REDUCTION OF PAIN AND EDEMA

By means of handpieces or electrodes, tecar brings the energy directly to the treated part where the therapeutic action is needed.
This therapy can be performed in two different ways, depending on which the energy transfer and the biological effects will be completely different.

CAPACITIVE METHOD

It allows to treat superficial tissues, focusing the action on skin, connective tissues, blood circulation and lymphatic system.
The current is applied to the body through two electrodes: an isolated electrode (active) and a non-isolated counter electrode, placed opposite each other.

Within the treated area, a movement of electric charges is generated, focusing mainly on the tissues in the area below the active electrode, where the most intense therapeutic action takes place.

RESISTIVE METHOD

It is performed with a non-isolated electrode and allows to focus the current action on tissues that are more resistant to electrical charges, such as bones, cartilages, tendons, ligaments, aponeurotic bands and fibrotic tissues.
The treatment technique uses two non-isolated electrodes (active electrode and counter electrode).
The therapeutic action occurs between the two electrodes, because the flow of current, which generates heat, travels homogeneously along this channel.

THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS

Biostimulation

The biostimulating activity promotes tissue repair and metabolism thanks to the increase in nutrients and oxygen, to the modulation of cell proliferation and differentiation, as well as to the activation of cellular functions.

Anti-inflammatory and anti-edema

The anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effects occur through the production of deep heat that favors vasodilation, lymphatic drainage and cellular wash-out.
