The Tecartherapy, also known as Tecar (Resistive Capacitive Energy Transfer or Resistive Capacitive Therapy), is probably the best known of physiotherapy electromedical treatments. Through the application of electromagnetic waves, this treatment aims to reduce inflammation so that it can act first on pain by increasing the microcirculation of blood vessels, their vasodilation, and also promoting an increase in internal temperature. Given its beneficial effects, it is also used for physio-aesthetic treatments.
Having over the years made it possible to visibly shorten patients’ recovery time, this treatment, initially used to recover patients from injuries, has actually become the preferred treatment for treating age-related conditions or disorders related to patients’ various work activities.
Tecartherapy sessions do not have any particular contraindications; side effects arise, for the most part, from improper use of the machine.
Treatment cannot be given during pregnancy or by patients with pacemakers.
