Within the framework of physiotherapy sessions, various physiotherapy devices such as laser, ultrasound, TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) are also available to our patients, in addition to manual therapy.

These treatments are in majority pain-free, and their use can help to overcome many different problems. The device chosen by our specialists always depends on the patient's individual condition and the parameters of the treatment are adjusted accordingly.


What is ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a mechanical energy that uses the beneficial effects of high frequency sound waves. The device requires a so-called mediator, which helps the sound waves to enter the body. This medium is usually a water-based gel, but it can also be supplemented with a cream containing an active ingredient to increase the effectiveness of the ultrasound.

What are the known effects?

A good choice for relaxing tight muscles, reducing pain and oedema.

Recommended for:

  • Muscle tightness

  • Joint pain

  • Back pain

  • Tennis elbow, golf elbow

  • Inflammation of the plantar fascia

  • Various inflammatory processes

For other conditions or pains, consult your physiotherapist to find the right therapy for you.

How does the ultrasound treatment work?

During the treatment, the therapist sets the correct parameters on the treatment machine and applies the medium and any other gel containing the active ingredient. He/she then starts the treatment with a treatment head of the right size for the area of concern, the duration of which varies depending on the extent of the area affected. The treatment is essentially painless.







What is laser treatment?

Laser treatment is an effective complement to therapy for musculoskeletal complaints. The treatment involves the application of low energy infrared light to the affected area. During the process, the patient basically feels no pain, heat or vibration that could cause discomfort. Our clinic uses state-of-the-art, high-performance machines.

What is TENS therapy?

TENS is a complementary therapy that is effective for both acute and chronic conditions. It is a small, easy-to-use device that uses electrodes to deliver electrical impulses to the human body to help it heal as quickly as possible. It is easy to use, so it is readily available from a doctor's recommendation, through our practice, and can be taught at home by our physiotherapists.

What are its known effects?

Its benefits include pain relief and electrically stimulating the nerves.

When is TENS treatment recommended?

  • Back pain

  • Muscle pain

  • Treatment of symptoms caused by nerves under pressure due to tunnel syndromes (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome)

  • Treatment of inflammatory lesions (bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis)

For other conditions or pains, consult your physiotherapist to find the right therapy.


How does TENS treatment work?

During TENS treatment, the physiotherapist will apply (and teach you how to apply) electrodes according to your complaint. If iontophoresis treatment is required, he will also apply the active ingredient to the affected area. The most suitable programme is selected from the programmes on the machine, and the therapist then adjusts the current intensity according to the patient's perception of the current. The treatment is basically painless, the current may cause a tingling sensation and minimal redness in the treated area.
