Our Equipment

A quick review and explanation of some of our tools and what we use them for

LymphaTouch

LymphaTouch, thanks to the combination of negative pressure and high frequency mechanical vibration, determines:

  • an expansion of the interstitial spaces, with consequent elongation of the anchoring filaments of the lymphatic capillaries and expansion of the endothelial openings of the capillaries themselves, aimed at increasing lymphatic motility and tissue drainage;
  • a mechanical deformation of the connective bands, due to the traction effect, capable of causing elasticization of the collagen and connective fibers in conditions of retraction and thickening.

Treatment principle

LymphaTouch uses the principle of negative pressure suction to achieve different treatment goals by accurately setting the negative pressure value, pulse time and vibration of the treatment area. LymphaTouch pulls the skin through negative pressure suction, which pulls the anchor wire connected to the capillary lymphatics and the skin, expands the endothelial cell space of the capillary lymphatics, promotes the interstitial fluid into the capillary lymphatics, and further returns through the anterior collecting lymphatic and collecting lymphatic.

LymphaTouch is an innovative medical device based on the combined action of negative pressure and high-frequency mechanical vibration to improve lymphatic flow in the treated area making rehabilitation therapy faster and more efficient.

LymphaTouch is a myofascial decompression therapy device precisely controlling negative pressure to increase lymphatic drainage, break down scar restrictions and release tight fascia.

LymphaTouch is a valid therapeutic solution for the treatment of acute trauma such as ankle sprains, contusion trauma, hematomas and tendon pathologies. Treatment reduces swelling and pain efficiently and can shorten recovery time from an injury.

LymphaTouch is indicated for the treatment of:

  • pre and post-operative swelling,
  • scars,
  • lymphedema,
  • acute injuries,
  • fascial restrictions,
  • muscle recovery treatments,
  • pain management and joint function,

Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy is used by physiotherapists to provide pain relief, and promote healing for bones and muscles. In our Physiotherapy Centre we put emphasis on different methods of electrotherapy to complement our manual approach such as:

Interferential Therapy

This involves the passing of two currents through the tissues. Where the currents intersect, a new current is set up. These currents can activate the pain gate mechanism to help with pain-relief, or can work directly on nerve fibres causing endorphin release. If you are suffering from severe pain we may use this type of electrotherapy to be able to achieve the maximum benefits from our manual therapy. These currents can also cause muscle contraction which in turn will cause a local increase in fluid flow and exchange.

Ultrasound

These high frequency sound waves are used to treat injuries to muscles, tendons and soft tissues. The sound waves pass through the skin causing the tissues in the affected area to vibrate. This helps to improve blood flow to the injured site and increase the breakdown of scar tissue, helping to decrease pain and encourage the healing process.

What Does a physiotherapist do ?

Continuous passive motion (CPM)

Continuous passive motion (CPM) devices are used during the first phase of rehabilitation following a soft tissue surgical procedure or trauma.

USES :

  • CPM is carried out by a CPM device , which constantly moves the joint through a controlled range of motion; the exact range is dependent upon the joint , but in most cases the range of motion is increased over time
  • Control post-operative pain, reduce inflammation, provide passive motion in a specific plane of movement, and protect the healing repair of tissue.
  • CPM is used following various types of reconstructive joint surgery such as knee replacement or ACL reconstruction.

M6 Robotic MLS Therapy Laser

The M6 Robotic MLS Therapy Laser is a robotized multi-target device designed to treat patients suffering from pathologies affecting a wide area, and which performs automatic applications. The distinctive feature of the M6 is it’s innovative multi-target functioning. Thanks to the features of the exclusive MLS multi-iodic optical group, a wide area is treated instantaneously helping to produce an immediate response of the treated tissues. The results are better and faster than with the scanning modality of traditional laser therapy products.

  • M6 enables the automatic delivery of MLS® Laser Therapy: the robotized head uniformly covers the entire target area and highlights multi-targets.
  • Treatment times are carefully calibrated to deliver the best possible energy dose to the tissue being treated.
  • The wide range of movements enables the M6 to be adapted to the chosen course of treatment, allowing the patient to be treated in various positions, either sitting, lying down or at a distance, without risk of contamination.
  • The multi-target application mode with bustrophedic (bi-directional) scanning, allows large areas of tissue to be treated rapidly and uniformly.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is successfully used for the treatment of muscle/ tendon tissue and tendon insertions. Shockwaves are high energy sound impulses. The energy released in the treatment area improves the metabolism and blood circulation; thereby stimulating the body’s self-healing repair mechanism. Shockwave has many advantages, such as it’s short treatment time per session. Moreover, it has a high percentage of successful treatments after only a few sessions and it makes medication and/ or surgery superfluous. The effectiveness of shockwave therapy is sufficiently proven by scientific research.

CONDITIONS FOR SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

  • Calcified shoulder and other painful conditions in shoulder tendons.
  • Elbow pain: Golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow
  • Pain in and around the hip joint: Trochanteric tendinitis / trochanteric bursitis, sometimes in connection with an incipient degenerative joint disease.
  • Knee pain like jumper’s knee, runner’s knee and Osgood Schlatter’s Disease, a functional pain when athletes heavily stress their knees.
  • Achilles tendinitis, pain in the Achilles tendon when physically active.
  • Heel spurs / Plantar fasciitis which develops as an abnormal growth in the heel bone due to calcium deposits that form when the plantar fascia pulls away from the heel.

EFFECTS OF SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

  • Reversal of Chronic Inflammation.
  • Stimulation of collagen production.
  • Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts.
  • Dispersion of pain mediator.
  • Release of trigger point .

Heat Therapy

Heat therapy is a method of drawing the blood to the targeted tissue which increases the blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to those areas. It can also be useful in removing waste from cells. It also aids in relieving pain, improving range of motion, and even helping muscles to relax.

There are several different forms of heat including heat compresses and chemical packs. It is important to make sure you always wrap the packs in a towel to reduce the risk of burns.

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)

This is a very safe method of electrotherapy which we use in the clinic, and loan for home. It provides pain relief by blocking nerve signals carrying pain messages to the brain. TENS also stimulates the production of endorphins – our natural pain relieving hormones

Cold Therapy

Cold therapy is often used to reduce inflammation, pain, and muscle spasms. The different types of cold packs include ice cubes, iced towels, frozen vegetables, and of course commercially available cold packs. Normally the duration for cold therapy is no more than 15 minutes.

CRYO T-SHOCK

CRYO T-SHOCK is a revolutionary device, awarded at Gicare Exhibition in Paris, as well as for the technological and therapeutic innovations introduced in the field of Rehabilitation. CRYO T-SHOCK offers the cryogenic and thermal performances individually or alternately, to create thermal shocks from cold and warm conditions – provoking therapeutic benefits that only the application of cold cannot provoke.

CRYO T-SHOCK is capable to deliver cold energy up to -18°C and warm energy up to 41°C. Exchanges between cold and warm are very fast and this is one of the most important features for obtaining proper therapeutic results.

Often, effects can be seen and felt immediately. Patient’s attitudes after each session are extremely impressive.

Magnetic Fields
