ELECTROTHERAPY is the application of electric currents for therapeutic purposes. We use different kinds of currents, and the choice depends on their impact and effect we wish to achieve. Following currents have therapeutic properties:


  • galvanic
  • electrophoresis (drug delivery)
  • TENS
  • (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
  • diadynamic (DD)


  • interference current (four pole and bipolar)

High-frequency current

  • SWD (shortwave diathermy)


neuralgia, neuritis, peripheral lesions and paralysis (accelerates nerve nutrition and recovery), periarthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, enthesopathy (inflammation of soft tissues around the joints), osteoarthritis, arthritis (painful knees, hips, wrists, hands), cervical and lumbar syndrome, post-traumatic swelling and bruising, distortion (injure of the soft tissue).


skin defects at the site of application, eczema, moles, dermatitis, metal in the tissue, febrile conditions, acute purulent processes, bleeding, tendency to bleeding, cardiac pacemaker, decompensation of heart, lung, kidney and liver.
