Therapy with PSORIAMED®
Psoriasis therapy with stimulation current is a scientifically approved treatment concept developed under supervision of Prof. Dr. Hermann DERTINGER at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. The special interference currents (IFC) smoothly overcome the resistance barriers of the skin without additionally irritating or damaging the affected regions, thus acting on the functionally disturbed areas.
The high anti-psoriatic efficiency of IFC is based on both the normalisation of the segmentation (hyperproliferation) of keratinocytes and its anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect. PSORIAMED® therapy functions transmitting of adequate information for cellular “self-help“, and is performed in short treatments with low current density. Stimulation current therapy can be applied on all localisations of psoriasis that can be reached well with an electrode application. Treatments under water and different types of special electrodes are available for therapy of the different areas mostly affected.
In clinical studies, it has proven to be very efficient - even for patients resistant to former therapies. Approx. 90% of patients respond to this conservative therapy, which is free of side-effects, with a complete remission or a significant improvement of their case (PHILIPP ET AL. 2000). While conventional psoriasis therapies bring considerable side-effects with them, which make repeated or longer treatments a problem, electrotherapy with PSORIAMED® is free of side-effects or discomfort. All the advantages of interference current therapy should not make you forget that psoriasis as a hereditary disposition disease cannot be healed permanently by any sort of treatment. Merely an existing affection can be treated. The treatment has to be repeated after new attacks, thus making electrotherapy especially practical because it has no side-effects. In case of widespread affection or the distinctively arthritic type of psoriasis, systemic treatment should be preferred.
