Medicover performs physiotherapy and electrotherapy treatments. Electrotherapy has an important role in the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases. It replaces drug therapy in many cases, which is the primary goal overall. Low, medium, and high-frequency electromagnetic treatments are available. During treatment, drugs are introduced into the painful area with the help of electrical stimulation, or the electromagnetic waves are used directly to relieve pain, to improve circulation, for muscle relaxation and strengthening. Electrotherapy exhibits its effects locally without any side effects.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is the most wide-spread type of electrotherapy for pain relief in the world. The painkiller electric current pulses are used mainly for the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases (trigger point, soft tissue rheumatism, degenerative disorders), but can be used to relieve other types of pain, such as tumor-related pain or smooth muscle cramps
