Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound is used with the aim of influencing sequelae of intervertebral disc degeneration (reduction of muscle tone and associated tension pain as well as increased perfusion), and treating insertion tendinosis. As a result of the pain relief, applicability of exercise therapy is optimised with subsequent function improvement.

Microwave therapy

Microwave therapy

Microwave therapy is used physiotherapeutically as an adjuvant treatment and is implemented as a therapy option in the DGOOC S2k "Guideline for conservative and rehabilitative care in disc herniation with radicular symptoms". It is applied with the aim of increasing perfusion and metabolism.

Traction therapy

Traction therapy

Device-supported traction with additional microwave therapy is used physiotherapeutically as an adjuvant treatment and is implemented as a therapy option in the DGOOC S2k "Guideline for conservative and rehabilitative care in disc herniation with radicular symptoms". The therapy can effect significant reduction of the disc herniation and alleviation of the pain symptoms, especially in case of pronounced disc herniation.
