This study is a multicentre study conducted on 116 athletes with acute and chronic musculoskeletal and tendinous pathologies, who were administered procedures with TECAR ® therapy, which is a capacitive and/or resistive energy transfer therapy. The objective of the study was to measure the reduction of pain with VAS and to reduce motor recovery time . The experiment was conducted under the management of Professor Carlo Tranquilli in Rome, Gian Paolo Ganzit in Torino, Pasquale Bergamo in Reggio… 

Acute Effects of Tecar Therapy on Skin Temperature, Ankle Mobility and Hyperalgesia in Myofascial Pain Syndrome in Professional Basketball Players: A Pilot Study

Diathermy can induce changes in the absolute temperature of the medial gastrocnemius muscle as well as deep thermotherapy based on the application of electric currents.

The effectiveness of Capacitive Resistive Diathermy ( Tecartherapy ® ) in acute and chronic musculoskeletal lesions and pathologies

Capacitive resistive Diathermy Tecartherapy® is able to treat knee, shoulder, hip, ankle, spinal column, hand, muscle injuries rapidly, and efficiently, in addition to painful inflammatory, osteoarticular and muscular disorders (arthrosis, lumbago, sciatica).

Immediate Effects of High-frequency Diathermy on Muscle Architecture and Flexibility in Subjects With Gastrocnemius Tightness

High-frequency therapy is immediately effective for improving the gastrocnemius muscle’s architectural properties and functional factors in subjects with GCM tightness.

Comparison between capacitive and resistive electronic transfer therapy and high-intensity laser therapy in pain conditions related to musculoskeletal disorders

An overview of the efficient results of CRet therapy and HILT in managing pain associated with musculoskeletal disorders found in the available literature showed that both therapies are powerful tools for pain reduction.

Effects of capacitive and resistive electronic transfer therapy in musculoskeletal diseases - a results overview of recent clinical trials

This therapy has favourable effects in pain reduction, improvement of muscles and joints mobility, and oedema reduction, and its positive effects may be attributed to its capability to increase tissue temperature and improve blood circulation.
