Tecar therapy

Medical information reviewed by: ADINA MATEI, MD, Medical rehabilitation doctor

TECAR therapy

One of the most modern treatments used today is TECAR therapy. Proof of how advanced technology can be used in medicine, Capacitive and Resistive Energy Transfer (TECAR) is a non-invasive therapy and uses high-frequency currents that enter the tissue and turn into heat.

It heals osteoarticular diseases (pain in the shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee, leg, joint swelling, muscle pain) and musculoskeletal pain (in the muscles and tendons), and prevents injuries after recovery. It also accelerates the natural metabolic processes of tissue healing.

The sensation that the patient perceives during therapy is pleasant, warm, similar to massage. The effect is rapid - from the first session, the patient's pain is greatly reduced.

For what conditions and purposes is TECAR Therapy indicated?

  • Dislocations / fractures
  • Muscle tears
  • Pre- and post-operative treatment in ligamentoplasty, prostheses, and osteosynthesis
  • Postoperative treatment in arthroscopes
  • Bone or ligament injuries in inflammatory processes at the muscle-tendon junction
  • Post-traumatic conditions, in which the therapy has an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-edematous effect
  • Chronic conditions or post-traumatic sequelae
  • Prevention of traumatic events - reduction and prevention of sports injuries
  • Elimination of pain
On average, a treatment of 10 sessions is indicated daily. 

How does TECAR therapy work?

TECAR therapy is performed through a device that works using high-frequency currents, imperceptible to the patient, which enters the tissue and turns into heat. Using different frequencies, it is possible to act on the superficial and deep structures.

What is TECAR therapy? 

During therapy, the body uses its energy, activating the regeneration mechanisms of the tissues and muscles, having the effect of healing. This energy produces mechanical effects (better management of blood flow), chemical-biological (accelerating the metabolism of damaged cells), and thermal (heat production). The device works with two electrodes and a conductive cream as follows:
  • The negative electrode will be placed on the opposite side of the anatomical area to treat, forming the connection with the mobile electrode
  • The active electrode through which the current is transmitted
  • Conductive cream
Stimulating the energy inside the biological tissues activates the body's natural healing processes and has the benefits and advantages of an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. TECAR therapy can be used on its own or can be merged with other complementary therapies or exercises.
