BTL electrotherapy: principle of action, application, advantages and contraindications
Electrotherapy is one of the functional sections of hardware physiotherapy. BTL electrotherapy devices are distinguished by their quality and modern design. This is modern equipment that meets international standards.
The principle of the apparatus
BTL electrotherapy is carried out using a device that generates constant or pulsed currents of various frequencies. They act on tissues causing the following effects:
healing reactions are triggered;
the body recovers faster after injuries;
improves tissue nutrition.
The device generates more than 200 types of currents, for example:
Electrotherapy treatment is performed at various sound frequencies. Low-frequency physiotherapy is based on the effects of low-voltage current, high-frequency - on the use of high-frequency alternating current.
Application of electrotherapy
Devices generating high-frequency and low-frequency current are used in various medical fields:
to reduce pain after fractures, bruises, as well as with radiculitis, osteochondrosis;
for the treatment of somatic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary organs, heart, blood vessels;
to remove end products of metabolism from cells;
in cosmetology, for example, to remove age spots, for the purpose of rejuvenation, etc.
First of all, myostimulation is carried out to treat diseases of the musculoskeletal system. In addition, currents are effective in pathologies of the ENT organs, skin, dental, and nervous diseases.
Benefits of electrotherapy
The main advantages of electrotherapy over other methods of physiotherapy include:
reduction of acute and chronic pain;
stabilization of the autonomic nervous system;
ease of use of the device;
high level of comfort;
reduction of the recovery period;
stimulation of the work of muscle fibers.
Trabert currents are medium currents that help to eliminate pain. Currents are indicated for chronic diseases of the spine and joints.
TENS currents cause muscles to tremble and vibrate, which promotes relaxation. This type of impact can be compared to massage. Currents stimulate muscles, improve blood circulation, wound healing.
Electrophoresis is one of the types of current-assisted treatment. In this case, drugs are used that are injected deeper into the tissue by a few centimeters than with conventional application.
Amplipulse is the gentle effect of currents on the human body. When exposed, neither heat nor tingling sensation is felt. The method is widely used in gynecology, for diseases of the male genital organs. Treatment for joint diseases gives a good effect.
Contraindications to electrotherapy
Treatment with currents is not carried out if there are the following changes in health:
hypertension 3 degrees;
intolerance to currents;
Electrotherapy at the Vertebra Clinic of Vertebrology and Neuro-orthopedics helps restore the health of the spine and joints. The procedures are carried out with the participation of modern European equipment and qualified doctors.

The physiotherapy apparatus "BTL-5818SLM" is able to generate a full range of low- and mid-frequency currents, and their various modifications. It is equipped with the most modern features, which, together with everything else, represent the latest achievements in the field of world electrotherapy.
By influencing electrotherapy on the human body, one can achieve diverse effects, both local and general. Local changes are formed directly in the place of overlapping overlays. In the field of application, an improvement in metabolism and an increase in repair processes are immediately noted. Electrotherapy has an antispastic effect on spasmodic areas of the muscle and blood vessels, while improving microcirculation and lowering the sensitivity of receptors (the above effect by itself also determines pain relief). The applied types of currents eliminate stagnant and inflammatory phenomena in tissues, help to reduce their swelling and accelerate the resorption of scars, adhesions and infiltrates.
