Ultrahigh frequency therapy

The ultrahigh frequency wave treatment (UHF waves) is the proven and effective procedure, included into the treatment courses, prescribed by therapists, neurologists, otolaryngologists and other specialists.

FOR WHOM IS UHF THERAPY PRESCRIBED?

The ultrahigh therapy has the anti-inflammatory effect, stimulates blood circulation, decreases the edema and reduces pain sensations of the patient.

Thanks to such wide range of impact, UHF is prescribed for the most different diseases:

  • respiratory system (bronchitis, pleuritic, pneumonia, bronchial asthma);
  • ears, nose and throat (runny nose, maxillary sinusitis, otitis, laryngitis etc.);
  • nervous system (headache, insomnia, osteochondrosis, neuritis, concussion, contusion etc.)
  • heart and vessels (increased pressure varicose veins and other blood circulation disorders);
  • digestive system (gastritis, ulcer, hepatitis, pancreatitis, cholecystitis, colitis etc.);
  • skin (eczema, psoriasis, acne, ulcer, bed sores, traumatic injuries);
  • dislocations, contusions, bruises, sprains and fractures;
  • urological problems (prostatitis, cystitis).

The UHF therapy is successfully applied in the process of rehabilitation of patients after operations, traumas or previous diseases.

PERFORMANCE OF UHF PROCEDURES

The treatment procedures, performed by using UHF system, are quick, simple, painless and do not require special preparation from the patient. It is comfortable to perform them in the Day Patient Department, visiting the clinic only for the treatment session.

 

During the UHF therapy session in Oxford Medical clinic, the patient is sitting or lying (it depends on what body area should be treated and what position is suitable for the patient), and the nurse places electrodes in the areas, specified by the doctor in his order. After placing the electrodes, the nurse presets the power, while the patient may feel warmth in the impact area.

 

In most cases, during the procedure, you do not need to take your clothes off – ultrahigh frequency waves easily penetrate through the clothes. During the treatment of fractures, the electrodes of UHF can be applied directly to the plaster splint, also successfully working through the plaster.

 

The UHF is ordered for both adults and children; the treatment courses can include from five to twelve sessions of treatment, performed every day or in a day. One session usually lasts for 10-15 minutes. The duration of sessions and treatment course depends on the diseases, patient’s condition, his age and presence of contraindications.

PRINCIPLE OF UHF EFFECT

Under the impact of ultrahigh frequencies, the field, which impacts the affected area of the organism, is formed. Under its impact, depending on the power and dose, the following processes happen:

  • the activity of leukocytes and fibroblasts increases;
  • the exudation – the release of fluids in tissues, caused by the inflammation;
  • the permeability of the wall of vessels improves;
  • the metabolic processes are activated in affected tissues.

The performance of UHF therapy is contraindicated for the people, who have problems with blood clotting, neoplastic processes, fever, infarction, thrombosis and heart failure.
