Der PASHA®-catheter is a minimally invasive pain therapy. It is performed by a electromagnetic effect on the pain signal conduction inside the nerve fibres in the spinal cord (neuromodulation). Pain therapy with the PASHA® catheter is a minimally invasivetreatment that is performes through a n epidural needle: The eelctromagnetic treatment with the duration of 4-7 min results in a lasting moderation of the physiological pain signal transduction in the spina. The effect of the neuromodulation treatment with the PASHA®-electrode lasts for up to 2 years. The electrode is fixed at the end of a flexible plastic tube (catheter). This electrode can be navigated through the spine while controlling the position with x-ray vision. This inially invasive pain therapy is also called "Epidural pulsed radio frequency therapy" (EPRF). The popular name for this EPRF-therapy (PASHA®-catheter) is after the inventor of this procedure, the German neurosurgeon Dr. Omar Pasha.
One common cause is degeneration of the disc. Wear or loss of disc tissue is a normal part of ageing. The loss of fluid, loss of protein structure over the course of life cause the disc to change. It becomes less and less elastic, fragile and its height decreases.
Increasing the disc volume with Hydrogel
Using the Hydrogel injection method we’d like to illustrate how we can counteract the loss in height in the degenerated disc: By injecting the highly expansive polymer substance Hydrogel considerably increases water retention in the viscid core of the disc. The highly water-binding, expansive Hydrogel increases the disc diameter in the long term again. This effect lasts for years.
There is a strong tradition of Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy in Germany. Rehabilitation has been a focus of medical research and practice since the middle of the 19th century.
Our general philosophy on rehabilitation: Excellent surgery only lays the foundation for a complete recovery. The extent of recovery and the lasting benefit for the patient is dependant on qualified, dedicated and specialised rehabilitation.
As a working principle, ZRT® Matrix Therapy enhances the regeneration of the body by supporting, and improving the metabolic situation of the individual cells which together make up our organs (such as muscles and tendons).
On this basis, ZRT® Matrix Therapy is relevant for every tissue and organ in the body and it’s application in cases of chronic pain and immobility in the muscle system has shown to be particularly effective.
The ZRT® Matrix Therapy is a therapeutic method, developed by Dr. B. Dickreiter, based on a set of techniques which were already established in the former USSR and Eastern Germany as a form of physiotherapy for athletes. It was found that athletes treated with ZRT® Matrix Therapy experienced great benefits in recovery following training and competition. Their rate of injury decreased, especially in the muscles and tendons (the “musculoskeletal system”).
The use of heat is a long, well established tradition in physical therapy. However an effective step forward in the use of local heat therapy, was achieved by the development of modern biophysics.
The natural heat source of the sun was used as the basis for this therapy. The infrared radiation from the sun, is filtered on it’s way to the ground, by the water vapor in the atmosphere. This natural filtering system was a model for the development of a therapeutically useful treatment device.
Supervised clinical Study with 418 Patients followed for at least one year after ZRT®-Matrix Therapy
For many years the clinical application of cellbiologically orientated Matrix Therapy saw significant results. After DAK Gesundheit (one of the largest public health insurance companies in Germany with more than 14 million members), accepted ZRT®-Matrix-Therapy into their program, an extensive study of it's effectiveness was conducted.
In general practice at the moment, only a little attention is paid to the regulation of the acid-base balance (bases can be thought of as the chemical opposite of acids). A reaction between an acid and base is called neutralisation.The organism is dependent in all areas on a balance of acids and bases so that the level of acid does not become too high.
