Physiotherapy for hypertension – electrophoresis for hypertension

The impact of these methods is aimed at the production of biologically active compounds, which are necessary for the relaxation of blood vessels, improve blood flow. Due to this, blood circulation is normalized, the load on the heart muscle is reduced.

After treatment, the patient will notice a decrease in heart rate, blood pressure, and a weakening of pain in the heart.

Physiotherapy offers several options for treating the disease:

  • galvanization;
  • electrophoresis;
  • low-frequency magnetotherapy;
  • ultra high frequency therapy (UHF);
  • infrared radiation.

During galvanization, a weak current discharge affects the brain hypertonic. Electrodes (special small plates of metal) are placed on the back of the head, eye sockets or whiskey of a person. The procedure lasts less than 20 minutes, and sessions should be repeated every day for 2 weeks.

Another effective technique for hypertension is electrophoresis. It is carried out with antihypertensive drugs, for example, Aminazine, Obzidan. Drugs are injected through the patient’s skin using an electric current.

Electrophoresis involves the use of the same equipment as in galvanization. The only difference is that under the electrodes it is necessary to place pads made of cotton cloth soaked with medicines. Electrophoresis is well suited for patients of any age.

Electrophoresis has several advantages:

  1. the possibility of introducing small, but quite effective dosages of drugs;
  2. active substances accumulate, creating a depot for prolonged action;
  3. the possibility of creating an increased concentration of the drug without saturating the blood and other body flu >If you use electrophoresis in parallel with other methods of therapy, you can get a stable result and positive dynamics of the disease. Electrophoresis does not affect the functioning of the digestive tract, cannot be the cause of an overdose of the medication used.

The use of an alternating magnetic field is based on low-frequency magnetotherapy. The procedure is necessary to accelerate the chemical reactions of the body. With hypertension, electromagnetic inductors should be installed on the back of the head, which will excite the vascular centers in the brain. As a result, you can achieve:

  • blood flow improvement;
  • heart rate reduction.

Another type of electrotherapy will be ultrasound therapy, which involves the use of pulsed alternating current. Therapy will reduce the likelihood of blood clots, improve metabolic processes in the vessels, and expand their lumen.

Disc electrodes should be placed on the solar plexus and held for 6-8 minutes, the course will be from 7 to 10 procedures.

When there is a need to improve the functioning of the heart muscle, the expansion of the coronary vessels, the doctor will prescribe infrared laser therapy. A concentrated beam of light acts on the skin of hypertension, the area of ​​the second intercostal space on the left side of the chest is exposed to irradiation.

There are 2 more methods of physiotherapeutic treatment:

The technology of the procedures is approximately the same, but in the first case low-frequency pulse currents are used, and in the second – sinusoidal.

With diadynamometry, electrodes are applied to the kidney area. Due to the effects of electrical impulses, there is a decrease in the production of the hormone angiotensin, which provokes a narrowing of the lumen in the vessels.

During treatment alternating currents with short-period modulation and continuous. The duration of therapy is 7 minutes, the course consists of 8-12 manipulations.
