Diadynamic current electrotherapy is a medical spa procedure that uses variable frequency electric currents to treat various conditions and promote healing. This therapy is based on the principle of applying electric currents through electrodes placed on the skin in the affected areas.
Diadynamic currents are generated by a specially designed device and can vary in frequency and intensity. During the procedure, electrodes are placed on the skin around the treated area and connected to the electrotherapy machine. It generates diadynamic currents that are applied to the patient’s body tissues, having multiple therapeutic effects.
Diadynamic current electrotherapy has several benefits for human health. These include:
- Pain reduction: diadynamic currents act on pain receptors, blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Thus, this therapy can help relieve chronic or acute pain.
- Stimulate blood circulation: Diadynamic currents can stimulate vasodilation and blood flow in the treated area. This helps to improve oxygenation and nutrients in the tissues, as well as eliminating toxins.
- Reducing inflammation: Diadynamic currents can have an anti-inflammatory effect, reducing swelling and inflammation of tissues. It can be beneficial in inflammatory conditions such as arthritis or tendonitis.
- Stimulating the healing process: diadynamic current electrotherapy can promote tissue healing by accelerating cell metabolism and stimulating collagen production. It can be useful in case of muscle injuries, sprains or fractures.
The duration and frequency of the diadynamic electrotherapy sessions will be determined according to the doctor’s recommendations and the needs of each patient.
