Pysical analgesia is the application of physical factors for pain management. In pysical analgesia a lot of pysical modalities are used: Preformed modalities (Electric currents; Ultra sound; Magnetic field; Laser; Deep Oscillation); Natural modalities (Kryo-factors; Thermo-agents; Hydro- and balneo-techniques; Physiotherapy techniques; hydro and balneo physiotherapy; Peloidotherapy); Reflectory methods (physical modalities in reflectory points and zones).
We propose our own theory for explanation of pathogenetic mechanisms of action of pysical modalities on the nociceptive and neuropathic pain.
Pain management is an important part of rehabilitation algorithms in clinical practice. We present our own experience and results in patients with conditions of the nervous and motor systems.
The conclusion of our own modest clinical experience of 30 years is: the capacity of pysical modalities to reduse pain is significant. Pysical analgesia has not side consequences and may be applied in combination with other therapeutic factors.
The monograph will be valuabel for members of the multidisciplinary team, engaged in pain medicine.
