Abstract

The developments in medicine have made it possible to effectively treat many diseases thanks to the application of modern methods of physical therapy. The therapeutic efficacy of physiotherapy has been proven in many clinical tests. Its analgesic action is listed as the most beneficial effect. Recent technological advancements have produced new appliances which enable the application of two synergic physical methods at the same time. This work presents a selection of physiotherapy applications used in the treatment of both acute and chronic pain in the form of associated therapy. The methodology, procedures and indications for application have been discussed.
