The physiotherapy, also known as physiokinesitherapy or fkt, is a health profession that consists of the set of Manual and instrumental techniques and rehabilitative exercises aimed at recover the physical state of a patient following an injury, i.e. an event that has in some way damaged tissues (muscular, fascio-connective, bony, or nervous) or a particular pathology. The purpose of physical therapy is the rehabilitation of the patient, that is, the patient’s recovery of proper function of his or her body through functional exercises.
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.
The physical therapy pathways tend to be dynamic in which physiotherapy techniques can coexist depending on the nature of the trauma to be treated and the patient’s response, and this is the reason why, if deemed necessary, the physiotherapist may, in the same session, use two different techniques: the Manual physiotherapy and tecartherapy.
