PHYSIOTHERAPEUTIC METHODS OF RECOVERY
LOW-FREQUENCY MAGNETIC THERAPY
An instrumental physiotherapeutic method of recovery based on effects of magnetic field on the body surface or on specific body parts. Provides increased blood flow, stimulates haematopoiesis, improves the central nervous system tone.
Performed according to the indications as post-workout sessions of up to 20 minutes.
PRESSURE THERAPY (LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE STIMULATING MASSAGE)
An instrumental physiotherapeutic method based on mechanical effects on the skeletal muscles and upper and lower limb vessel walls (so-called “pants” and “sleeves”). Improves the muscle tone, removes lactic acid and other metabolic slag, stimulates lymph circulation.
Performed as post-workout sessions of up to 20 minutes.
HYPOTHERMIC (COLD) PROCEDURES
Exposure of the body to low temperatures. The key effect is based on improvement of the vessel wall tone and acceleration of the peripheral circulation. Stimulation of immune system of the body and prevention of infections.
HYPERTHERMIC (HEAT) PROCEDURES
Exposure to high temperatures. The key therapeutic effect is improvement of vascular and muscle spasm. Removal of toxic metabolic products post loads.
Aromatherapy – effects of aromatic substances through inhalation at a heated state to restore the working condition and prevent stress.
MESODIENCEPHALIC MODULATION (MDM)
An instrumental physiotherapeutic method based on effects of low electric current on specific areas of brain.
Performed as post-workout sessions of up to 20 minutes at in-patient conditions.
Used to accelerate recovery based on biochemistry and morphology parameter deviations.
Commonly used in sports for the following indications:
– treatment of stress, depression and anxiety states;
– prevention of immune system disorders;
– cardiovascular system overload;
– improvement of hormonal balance at highly intensive load areas;
– metabolism improvement under loads (including persons with diabetes).
HYPO- AND HYPERBARIC EFFECTS
Hardware and machine physiotherapy method based on low (hypo) or high (hyper) oxygen level in the inhaled air. Accelerated recovery after loads associated with low oxygen level (load-induced hypoxia). Conducted in the form of post-load sessions, and during workout (hypoxic machines).
