Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy is a special field within physical therapy. It helps activate by means of absolutely innocuous electric impulses or ultrasound the self-healing mechanisms of the body. Therefore, it is an efficient complementary treatment for most diseases and disorders.

According to the disorder the patient suffers from, the affected part of the body is exposed to different electrical stimulations. Depending on the chosen type of current, the electrotherapy can be used to relieve pain or to enhance the blood circulation and the metabolism. Muscle contractions due to an irritation of nerves or muscle fibres may cause muscle tension. The electric current, aimed at heating up the deeper lying tissue, also helps stimulate the body’s immune system.

In GZM Health Centre we only use high quality electrotherapy devices supplied by “Zimmer Medizintechnik” Company, a premium manufacturer.
