Induction is a method of electrotherapy, the active factor of which is a high-frequency alternating magnetic field.
The action of the energy of this field causes the appearance of induced (inductive) eddy currents, the mechanical energy of which is transferred to heat. The vessels expand, the blood flow accelerates, blood pressure decreases, coronary blood circulation improves.
The anti-inflammatory and resorbing action of inductothermia is associated with heat generation and increased blood flow. There is also a decrease in muscle tone, which is important for spasm of smooth muscles. A decrease in the excitability of nerve receptors causes anesthetic and sedative effects.
The application of this procedure on the adrenal region stimulates their glucocorticoid function. With this method of treatment, an increase in the calcium content in the tissues and a bacteriostatic effect are observed.
Indications for use
Indications for inductothermy are subacute and chronic inflammatory diseases of the internal organs, pelvic organs, ENT organs, diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, peripheral and central nervous system.
The number of private contraindications include violations of the pain and temperature sensitivity of the skin, the presence of metal objects in the tissues in the affected area and acute purulent processes.
