The Tecar Therapy occupied a role that is increasly important in the instrumental physiotherapy. This technology is actually widely used in the treatment for athletes, because it bring results very fast. Improvements can be seen during the first session. The name of this machine is the acronym of Transfert Electrical Capacitive And Resistive (T.E.C.A.R).
Tecar Therapy is a physical therapy that is part of the endogenous thermotherapy, able to significantly reduce recovery and rehabilitation time by stimulating the activation of all the body's natural repair processes. All this thanks to the application of radiofrequency current that causes a thermal reaction in the tissues that stimulates the body's natural healing response with immediate anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects on muscles, tendons, cartilage or bones ligaments. The two systems, capacitive and resistive, allow the operator to easily adjust the therapy according to the type of pathology. Capacitive transfer for tissues with high water content (muscles), resistive transfer for tissues with the highest resistance and low water content (bones, tendons, adipose tissues).
