Adenoids: physiotherapy - why is it necessary?

September 15, 2011

 physiotherapy, adenoids
 Physiotherapy techniques, of course, used in the treatment of adenoids. They are used mainly in order to strengthen the body's defenses (immune system), and inflammatory processes in the nasopharynx. Cure adenoids using the physiotherapy treatments fail.

 Adenoids: physiotherapy - why is it necessary?

General principles of physical therapy adenoids

Physiotherapy - a set of methods of treatment of diseases using various physical factors (electric current, magnetic field, light, heat). Most of these techniques are effective if they are carried out in combination with other therapeutic measures. Thus physiotherapy treatments may reduce the pill burden on the patient in the form of various drugs.

Under the influence of physiotherapy activated by the body's defenses, metabolism, improves blood circulation, lymph flow, reduces inflammation. All this contributes to a more efficient and rapid treatment of the disease. The most effective effect is early in disease. Apply techniques and physical therapy to prevent disease or relapse.

Is there a cure adenoids some physiotherapy methods? Certainly not, physiotherapy should be one of the links in the complex treatment.

Only long-term targeted treatment as is acute and an exacerbation of the inflammatory process (adenoiditis) may suspend the process of proliferation of nasopharyngeal tonsils or adenoids.

Physical therapy techniques can be used individually or as a set of procedures. Complex physical therapy prescribed by a doctor, physical therapist.

Light therapy in adenoids

Among the methods of light therapy in the treatment of adenoids applied ultraviolet radiation (UVR, EUV-therapy) and the impact of a laser beam (laser).

UFO intranasally is most often used during acute adnoidita - ultraviolet rays kill pathogens and dried inflamed nasal mucosa. UFO whole body is used as a restorative procedure, the recovery of immunity Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults  Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults
 That is the prevention of nasal diseases and, accordingly, further increase the adenoids.

When exacerbation (adenoiditis) shall also be treated shortwave ultraviolet radiation, so-called EUV therapy. Under her influence infectious agents are killed.

Lazezeroterapiya now considered almost an alternative to surgical treatment. But it is mainly in children, in adults it is unlikely to be able to fulfill this role. Best of all laser impacts are small (I-II degree) adenoids. Local impact of the laser beam activates the body's defenses, improve blood circulation in the place of impact. There are special methods of laser therapy in adenoids, which can prevent their further proliferation.

Electrotherapy in adenoids

Electrotherapy is used mainly during exacerbation adenoiditis. Appointed physiotherapy procedures such as electrophoresis, UHF, magnetic therapy, EHF therapy.

Using electrophoresis in the nasal cavity can drive various medicinal solutions (e.g., diphenhydramine, calcium chloride, potassium iodide), contributing to a reduction of edema Prevention and treatment of edema - it is important to understand the root cause  Prevention and treatment of edema - it is important to understand the root cause
   and inflammation.

UHF (ultra-high frequency magnetic field) is applied during exacerbation of the disease, this effect also helps to reduce inflammation.

Magnetotherapy - is the impact of high and low frequency AC or DC magnetic field. This gives rise to electrical currents, causing a change in physico-chemical properties of the cells of various tissues of the body, speed up metabolism. Local effects of the magnetic field improves the nervous and vascular regulation of the area to be exposed, as well as the ability of tissues to resist infection (local immunity).

EHF-therapy (extremely high frequency therapy) is the effect on the body with the help of the energy of electromagnetic waves of extremely high frequency range at certain points on the body that causes the body's "memory" of that time, when he was healthy. The method has virtually no contraindications.

Other methods of physical therapy effects in adenoids

First of all, it is inhaled. But it must be quite clear about that inhalation may reduce inflammatory edema during acute adenoiditis, but does not affect the growth of the adenoids.

During exacerbation adenoiditis can do inhalations with diphenhydramine, calcium chloride, alkaline inhalations just mineral water. But to make them better in fizioterapevtichekogo cabinet as hot inhalation (namely, those can be done at home) in adenoids Adenoids - the expansion of the pharyngeal tonsil  Adenoids - the expansion of the pharyngeal tonsil
   contraindicated - they will cause even more tissue edema and nasal congestion.

Physiotherapy - this is just one method of conservative treatment of adenoids.
