Tecartherapy vs. Ultrasound for Treatment of Degenerative Pain

A study at the University of Valencia on degenerative neck pain involving 100 patients was randomised into two groups of Tecar and Ultra-sound. It showed a statistically significant pain reduction in the Tecar group at days 1,4,5,6. In addition, there were greater limitations on flexion, extension and cervical rotation in the Ultrasound group. Therefore, there was a greater need for further physiotherapy support in the Ultrasound group as a result often 2 to 3 times greater than the Tecar group.
Study on Pain Relief and Return to Function in Active Athlete Population
A study of 116 active athletes showed a significant reduction in pain and significant improvement in recovery times when compared to standard recovery protocols, as well as significant improvements in return to function.
Tecar vs. TENS in Phantom Limb Pain
A 40 patient study was randomised into 2 groups of 20. Tecar showed immediate reduction in pain especially where VAS was at 10 pre-treatment. VAS is a pain scale, with 10 being the maximum pain and zero no pain. Tecar showed an earlier relief from pain when compared to TENS reaching earlier statistical significance. Tecartherapy has a therapeutic analgesic effect that is more significant and immediate in short term phantom limb pain when compared to TENS.
Tecar Study in a Single Centre across a Range of Pathologies A total of 117 patients were treated using Tecar with the following findings summarised as follows: 35 Osteo-Arthritis patients with 29 out of 35 showing good to excellent functional improvements. 24 Spinal Pathologies with 20 out of 24 showing good to excellent functional improvements. 43 Sciatica patients with 20 asymptomatic post the 5th treatment, a further 7 asymptomatic post the 8th treatment and a further 16 showing pain reduction. 15 Herniated Disc patients with 6/15 asymptomatic post 3 weeks and 4/15 showing slight pain.
Tecar in the Treatment of Chronic Osteo-Arthritis in the Elderly
217 OA patients in an open series over a 4 year period with pain and function as the key measures. 85% showed good to excellent overall results and 62% a significant improvement in patients who had chronic issues and were treated with other forms of electrotherapy.

Tecar. Its main benefits are:
Accelerates reduction in pain compared to other electrotherapies such as ultra-sound. Accelerates the natural healing mechanisms of the body reducing recovery time. Tecar activates the treated area by applying a biocompatible radiant energy which increases the cellular metabolic processes. So by stimulating the innate energy within biological tissues, it activates the body’s natural repair and anti-inflammatory processes.

TECARTERAPIA - TECARTHERAPY BRISTOL CHELTENHAM ENGLAND.



La TECARTERAPIA, è una forma di termoterapia endogena che incontra sempre maggiore consenso in campo medico e fisioterapico per la sua straordinaria efficacia nel trattamento di traumi e patologie dell'apparato muscolo-scheletrico.
Benchè la terapia basata sul calore sia conosciuta ed impiegata da molto tempo per il trattamento delle affezioni dolorose articolari e muscolari solo con l'avvento di questa nuova tecnologia, che riesce a generare calore all'interno dei tessuti, si sono fatti sostanziali passi in avanti in termini di efficacia e di risultati.




- aumento della circolazione sanguigna
- stimolazione del drenaggio linfatico
- aumento dell'ossigenazione dei tessuti
- maggior apporto di sostanze nutritizie
- eliminazione rapida di scorie e cataboliti
- accelerazione dei processi rigenerativi
- rilascio di endorfina e riduzione del dolore
