Flashcards in Devices Deck (13):
1

Short Wave Diathermy

indications: inflammation/infections – bursitis, tendinitis, bronchitis, prostatitis, chronic sinusitis
CI: long-term use, areas of low vascularity

2

Sine Wave

Indications: LMN lesions (loss of muscle tone), spasms, nerve-related problems, denervation, ischemia
CI: over eye/brain hematoma, pacemaker CA

3

High voltage galvanism

Pain (neuralgia, sciatica, sprain/strain

4

Low voltage galvanism

Denervated muscle, decreased motion, pain, excess scarring

5

Iontophoresis

Low voltage galvanism + substance

6

Interferential Current

form of TENS
pain relief by releasing endorphins
increase circ, reduce inflamm
muscle stimulation to activate weak muscles
Further the pads are away from each other, deeper the penetration

7

Microcurrent

To increase ATP
wound healing, increase lymph flow
sprains, strains, contusions
chronic and acute pain

8

TENS for chronic

Endorphin release
1-15 Hz
lasts hours

9

TENS for acute

Enkephalin
80-140 Hz
Lasts only during tx

10

Infrared

Arthritis, chronic low back pain, Raynaud's, thrombophlebitis
relax skin before other therapies

11

UV Radiation

Acne, folliculitis, psoriasis, wounds, Rickets

12

LASER

Wounds, pain for sprains and strains, frozen shoulder, OA, ligament/tendon injury

13

US

Tendonitis, bursitis, nerve entrapment, OA, chronic sprains
