Physiotherapy treatment

Exposure to heat, electrical impulse, laser, magnetic field in urology is used to normalize the functioning of the organs of the urinary system, restore their function.

How exactly does physiotherapy treatment affect a person:

  • dilates small blood vessels;
  • accelerates blood flow;
  • improves gas exchange;
  • reduces swelling, inflammation;

Physiotherapy is often an adjunct to medical or surgical treatment to speed up recovery. Urologists note that the positive effect is most noticeable in the treatment of patients with prostatitis.

Therapies

The following methods of exposure are used in urology:

  • magnetotherapy - due to the influence of a magnetic field, the movement of potassium and sodium ions changes, blood vessels expand, excess fluid flows out and edema is eliminated;
  • low-frequency laser irradiation - has a local effect on the inflammation focus, sanitizing it;
  • intravenous laser blood irradiation or ILBI - enhances immunity in inflammatory diseases;
  • amplipulse therapy - reduces pain, inflammation, improves blood flow in case of prostatitis, urolithiasis;
  • UHF - the use of a high-frequency electromagnetic field, recommended for endocrine infertility, impotence, to normalize sexual function;
  • high-frequency magnetotherapy or inductothermy - a magnetic field of high or very high frequency is used, which accelerates blood circulation, improves gas exchange and cell nutrition;
  • electrophoresis - delivers drugs directly to the problem area, the most common indication is chronic prostatitis;
  • electrical stimulation - short impulse currents activate the nerves, causing muscle contraction;
  • dorsonvalization - the patient is exposed to currents of high frequency, but low strength, this improves the functioning of the nervous system, blood vessels.

The most commonly prescribed procedures are based on the influence of a laser, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. Their effectiveness is beyond doubt, their use is prescribed in the standards and protocols for the treatment of urological patients.
