Electrotherapy is used when seeking to reduce aches in joints, muscles, or spine, increase muscular tone, peripheral circulation, soothe muscle spasms, regenerate damaged nerves, increase sensitivity of neurotic cells, reduce inflammatory process. Electrotherapy helps soothing cough and inflammation, caused by airway disease.

Ultrasound therapy is applied when contraction of inflammatory and non-inflammatory joint disease is present as well as after ligament strain and for treatment of ligament inflammation. It is also used after gynaecological, orthopaedic and other surgeries, since it accelerates the healing of scars and broken bones and soothes local inflammation process.

This therapy also heals diseases of peripheral vessels and motional support apparatus. Laser treatment is used to heal mammary gland and sweat gland inflammations.

Magnetic field (Bemer) therapy is a way of treatment when human organism is affected by law frequency alternating magnetic field. It is applied in cases of disorder of peripheral circulation and osteoporosis; it accelerates healing of broken bones, reduces swelling after traumas, eases neuropathic pain, and activates immunity. It is widely applied when treating insufficiency of venous circulation, lymphostasis, neurological, skin and other diseases.

Microwave therapy is electromagnetic vibration of decimeter range. Decimeter waves penetrate into tissues (9-11 centimeters) and cause strong anti-inflammatory effect and, thus, reduce pain and spasms. Decimeter microwaves broaden vessels, stimulate central nervous system, and improve nutrition of tissues. Microwave therapy has a positive impact on treatment of sinusitis, ear inflammations, bronchitis, prostate inflammations, also joint, peripheral nervous system, ginaecological, urologic diseases.

Manual therapy is a way of manual treatment that recreates the correct biomechanics (physiological state) of the whole joint(-s) or vertebra manually and restores freedom of movements.  Movement is a powerful biological stimulant that becomes a healing one if applied purposefully, measured, adapted to individual state of the patient and his/her joint(-s) biomechanics.
