What is Tecar therapy?
Tecar therapy is a treatment method that is performed by the Tecar device and is widely used to treat many diseases.
Tecartherapy is a non-surgical method for the treatment of bone, soft tissue, musculoskeletal and joint diseases.
This method is one of the common non-invasive treatment methods in physiotherapy.
At the beginning of the introduction of the Tecar device in the field of physiotherapy, this method was only used for sports injuries, but with the passage of time, the Tecar device was also used in the treatment of other diseases and musculoskeletal injuries that can be treated in physiotherapy.
The word tecar is made from Capacitive and Resistive Transfer Energy and means to stimulate the process of physiological restoration and speed up the restoration time.
Tecar is also known by the word RF in physiotherapy, and RF stands for radio frequency and means the use of radio frequency waves in treatment.
The Tecar device in physiotherapy is an evolved and more advanced type of diathermy treatment that causes energy to be transferred to deeper areas of the body.
Tecartherapy is a type of device with radio frequency waves (spectrum of electromagnetic waves) which causes energy transfer in body tissues with two capacitive and resistance methods.
With takara therapy, the electromagnetic current generated during the treatment with the device causes energy to be transferred to the body’s tissues, and as a result, helps to regenerate them a lot.
If this work is done accurately and correctly, it will cause a different recovery of the lesion in the depth of the tissue, stimulation of blood lymph flow, ligaments, tendons, muscle and connective tissue and bone.
When the electromagnetic current hits the tissues, it causes a controlled increase in heat locally in the tissue, which causes the improvement of blood flow and hyperemia in the tissue, the release of pain-relieving hormones, tissue repair, and the reduction of edema and swelling.
The use of the Tecar device in physiotherapy causes the blood flow to accelerate directly by raising the local temperature and indirectly leads to an increase in oxygen in the treated tissues and stimulates the body’s immune system and accelerates the healing process. The healing process of the tissues.
Note that the thermal and non-thermal effects in this method are actually produced in the tissue itself and no current or radiation is radiated to the tissue.
This method is endogenous thermotherapy, which can significantly reduce the patient’s recovery and rehabilitation time by activating the body’s natural physiological processes.
It is worth mentioning that most therapeutic components do not have the power to penetrate the deep layers of the body because factors such as skin, muscle sheaths, subcutaneous fat, etc. are obstacles to the penetration of waves and currents.
But thekarotherapy has the unique feature of being able to cross the barrier of the mentioned factors and reach the depth of the target tissue.
This feature can help patients to get rid of the most profound joint and muscle injuries.
Tecar therapy shows its remarkable effects even after one session and the patient improves significantly after one treatment session.
Also, this method helps a lot in the recovery process of patients who have torn ligaments, neck pain, leg pain and other problems.
This therapeutic method, like other therapeutic modalities in physiotherapy such as: shockwave therapy, Ultrasound therapy, magnet therapy, laser therapy, etc., helps a lot in the treatment and rehabilitation of injured people.
