HYPERBARIC CHAMBER – “better health, one breath at a time”
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen at an ambient pressure higher than atmospheric pressure (more than 1 ATM). Increased pressure conditions contribute to a bigger quantity of oxygen dissolving in blood and an increased quantity of oxygen being transported to our cells. Under normal pressure conditions, 97% of oxygen binds to hemoglobin in red blood cells, thus giving blood its red colour. In the hyperbaric chamber where pressure conditions are higher, oxygen dissolves in the plasma (blood’s colourless liquid medium). Oxygen-enriched plasma transports a significantly larger quantity of oxygen to the final destination – the cells. The outcome is a wide variety of positive impacts on our body.
SHOCK-WAVE THERAPY – “when healing comes to a halt, we can activate it again”
Shock-wave therapy works by delivering extracorporeal acoustic impulses to different structures in the body in a non-invasive way. The energy impulses penetrate about 4-7cm into the body, causing microtraumas that decrease the sensitivity of pain receptors and increase local circulation. This can accelerate healing processes in the treated tendons, muscles or bone tissues, or it can stimulate resorption processes of calcium deposits in tendons, bursas and muscles.
ZAMAR – “exercise for your blood vessels”
The therapeutic effects of heat have been known for a long time – today, they are paired with technology as well. Cryotherapy, thermotherapy and compression therapy cause the contraction and expansion of blood vessels with the use of intermittent temperature alterations (0-45°C). The attained vasoconstriction and vasodilatation, along with constant or intermittent compression, accelerate the processes of tissue repair and shorten the duration of acute or subacute healing phases caused by an injury or surgery.
ULTRASOUND THERAPY, ELECTROTHERAPY, MAGNETOTHERAPY – “the application of physics at the service of medicine”
These types of equipment are part of common and well-known practices of physical therapy and have proved their effectiveness for different procedures of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
