TECAR therapy is a form of endogenous thermotherapy (it heals your body by creating heat inside it) based on radio waves. It is also known as "capacitive and resistive electrical transfer". There is a wide range of applications:
Endogenous thermotherapy is based on the principle of capacitive and resistive energy transfer (Capacitive - Resistive Diathermia) and has an action in the essence of biological tissues, activating the body's natural mechanisms for healing and anti-inflammatory processes.
Tecar therapy is a physical therapy that is part of endogenous therapy, capable of significantly reducing the recovery and rehabilitation period by stimulating the activation of the body's natural healing processes.
All this thanks to the application of the radio frequency current, which causes a thermal reaction in the tissues, which stimulates the body's natural healing response with an immediate anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect on muscles, tendons, cartilage or bone ligaments.
Both systems, Capacitive and Resistive, allow the therapist to easily adapt the therapy according to the type of pathology.
Capacitive transfer for high water content tissues (muscles);
The resistive transfer is for tissues with high resistance and low water content (bones, tendons, adipose tissue).
TECAR therapy plays a role that is increasingly important in instrumental physiotherapy. This technology is actually widely used in athletics because it brings fast results. Improvements can be during the first procedure.
The name of this machine is an acronym from Transfer Electric Capacitive and Resist - T. E.C. A. R.
The procedure is not painful. The feeling is very pleasant. The effect comes quickly.
