Conductive creams for instrumental physical therapy in sport
For an effective diathermy treatment, the use of a conductive cream is strongly recommended. Conductive creams have a high conductive power and guarantee optimal performance in therapy. By facilitating the penetration of the current into the tissue, it minimises electrical contact resistance while facilitating both the mouvement of the electrode on the skin and the action of the therapy.
Conductive diathermy cream is a cream specifically made to be used with tecar equipment. Its high conduction capacity is guaranteed by the presence of mineral salts that promote and prolong the effects of therapy.
Frequently asked questions
How is conductive cream for tecar therapy used?
Tecar therapy (or diathermy) stimulates energy production within the treated tissues by activating anti-inflammatory and reparative processes. Thanks to it, metabolic activity and vascular and lymphatic circulation increase, which contributes to better oxygenation of the tissues and reabsorption of oedemas. Conductive creams help prolong the effects of the therapy due to its conductive power. They are usually applied on the treated area in 1mm layer.
