Managing and Curing Your Pain

Interferential Current Therapy (IFC)
Do you experience your back as a hard uneven surface with lowered muscular elasticity reduced neck and shoulder range of motion and highly painful trigger-points? Alternately, you may suffer from sciatic nerve inflammation or some other neuromuscular pain. You probably will not find any better therapeutic solution for these conditions than 3D Interferential Current Therapy (IFC). The innovative methodology of IFC provides a rhythmical shift in interferential field causing a significant anti-inflammatory effect by penetrating into a very deep cellular level. This state-of-the-art equipment provides a great number of specific therapeutic programs that are selected for different purposes, among these are sedation therapy, myokinetic activation, pain reduction, stimulation of blood circulation, stabilization of the vegetative nervous system, and local anesthesia. Acute patients are actually able to feel results just after their initial treatment!

Furthermore, certain cases of partial muscle paralysis or muscle degenerations and reduced join functioning have actually been cured with use of the interferential current therapy making it one of the most effective electrotherapy at the present time. Interferential current therapy (IFC) has the potential to restore muscles contracted over long periods of time, as well as inflamed ligaments damaged by long-term squeeze of the peripheral nerves. IFC stimulation is not only a revolution in the treatment of chronic pain but our therapists, at the Art of Life community health centre, believe that this effective therapeutic stimulation is the best method to pain relief in the treatment of a spinal cord injury or a neuromuscular affliction.

Far Infra Red (FIR)
Another therapeutic technology offered by our therapists is called Far Infra Red (FIR). This modern healing technology was developed by Japanese scientists and it is based on the ancient principles of the IR rays’ absorption by our body providing natural (somebody could say ecological) relief from long-term pain. Knowing whether a problem is in a chronic back or neck pain, migraine, rheumatoid join pain, a complicated or improper-healed bone fracture, fibromyalgia, a discomfort of eczema or psoriasis, all of these problems can be treated with our FIR medical equipment.

Radial Shock Wave Treatment (RSWT)
And last but not least, if you suffer from salt deposits and tendon calcifications, if you have painful spurs in your joints or a frozen shoulder or, if you experience a painful “trigger point” reaction, you will no longer need a surgery procedure to correct these problems. There is an innovative therapeutic technology, providing a non-invasive, outpatient alternative to surgery, called Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT). The medical application of RSWT for the treatment of the trigger points provides amazing results. This effective technology utilizing high-energy, short wavelength sound waves, called shockwaves, was invented by Swiss engineers for fast and effective post-traumatic rehabilitation of Olympic athletes. The RSWT therapy has been used in Switzerland with great success for more than 10 years, and recently, the RSWT treatment has been introduced at the Art of Life Community Health Centre for the cure of our patients. With taking advantage of the Radial Shock Wave therapy any of these problems could be cured for only three sessions of five to ten minutes each.

Studies of the Radial Shock Wave Therapy show:
  • The success rate of this treatment is up to 80%, greater than of surgery.
  • Most patients feel no pain during the treatment, and practically complete pain relief is observed within eight to ten days after the treatment.
  • RSWT therapy does not require the use of anesthesia during the procedure.
As we mentioned before, this technology is based on utilizing high-energy acoustic waves and is similar to a non-invasive method which currently being used in urology practice for breaking up kidney stones. However, the use of the ultrasonic wave in the radial direction makes the procedure much more comfortable.

The Radial Shock Wave Therapy works both mechanically and chemically, and it allows the human body to use its own healing mechanism by stimulating a process of regeneration of new and healthy cells and evacuation of the sick cells in the affected areas of the body. As a result, the RSWT therapy has been known to help speed up the healing process tremendously.
The Swiss DolorClast® medical device is one of the many other options available to our doctors and therapists to diagnose and help you to cure the root of your pain.
