Overview of diagnostic and therapeutic methods in medicine, principles of management in the human body. Using various types of energy in the diagnosis and treatment. 1. Mechano, principles, instruments for application mechano, tables for different types of therapy. 2. Ultrasound - the principle of action, device, applications. 3. Thermotherapy - its distribution, the carrier medium for application of heat and cold, the body responses to heat and cold. Hydrotherapy overall and local. 4. Sauna, hardening. Inhalation. 5. Phototherapy - The principle of infrared, visible and ultraviolet light, including laser devices. Safety rules for laser. 6. Elektrodiagnostika, traditional methods including IT curve 7. Electrotherapy - the effects of galvanic current on the body, risks, use the device. 8. Electrotherapy - the effects of mid-frequency currents used methods of application equipment. 9. Electrotherapy - high currents, effects, risks, methods of application equipment. 10. Magneto, in medicine controlled parameters of the electromagnetic field, interaction of electromagnetic fields with tissue, used equipment. 11. Distance electrotherapy 12. Combination of different methods of physical therapy Ultrasound - instruments, practical application Thermotherapy - the division, the carrier medium for application of heat and cold, the body responses to heat and cold. Hydrotherapy overall and local - practical application Sauna, hardening. Inhalation-device, the practical application Phototherapy - a practical application of infrared, visible and ultraviolet light, including laser devices.
