Thermo Therapy

Thermo therapy is an area of physiotherapy that is primarily used to increase the speed and intensity of the blood circulation. The increase in blood circulation is achieved by alternating the application of very hot and cold water. The resulting contraction and extension of the blood vessels significantly increases the circulation.

This method is used principally to release muscle tension and to aid the healing of tendon injuries. The tendon tissue is generally characterized by low blood circulation which is why the healing process of tendon injuries is a long one. The regular application of thermo therapy can considerably accelerate the recovery from these injuries.
