Transcranial micropolarization of the brain in the Awatage medical center
Transcranial micropolarization of the brain in Kiev at the Awatage medical center
Before you understand what micropolarization of the brain is, it is worth learning a little history of the development of this method. How and why they came to the conclusion that brain micropolarization has such healing properties.
Perhaps it is worth starting from the beginning of the last century, when in well-known laboratories in Germany (Berlin), Russia (St. Petersburg) and Great Britain they actively studied the effect of direct current on nerve cells, studied the processes of excitation and inhibition, of course, with the participation of direct current. Studies were carried out both on individual cells and on the whole brain by implanting electrodes into it. Irritating or suppressing with the help of direct current and electrodes implanted into the brain, they achieved excellent results in the treatment of some serious diseases, such as Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, etc. However, such operations did not find wide application in practical medicine due to their traumatic nature, but pushed researchers to the study of the effect of direct current on the brain through the cranium. And, as it turned out, not in vain.
Putting electrodes on the head and passing a small direct current, we got interesting effects, which are curative for many brain diseases.
So what happened under the electrodes?
A small constant current led to the accumulation of charge in the nerve cells outside the cell. This phenomenon in physiology is called the polarization of the cell membrane, and given that the currents are small, the term micropolarization of the brain is suitable. This led to the activation of this part of the brain and an increase in its influence on other parts of the cerebral hemispheres. This is the manifestation of the therapeutic effect of micropolarization, when some areas of the brain are actively involved in work, while others, on the contrary, rest. According to this principle, a therapeutic effect occurs, for example, with epilepsy. Later it turned out that by acting on the spinal cord with direct current, one can influence the state of the brain and vice versa. By acting on certain parts of the cerebral cortex, you can achieve a pronounced analgesic effect.
Exposure to a current on the brain through the skull is called transcranial micropolarization of the brain. Exposure to the spinal cord by direct current through the skin and spine is called transvertebral micropolarization.
In some studies, it was shown that when exposed to a current of up to 0.2 ml amperes on the scalp, there was an increase in attention in the subjects and, more importantly, they learned much faster than those who were not exposed to micropolarization. Abroad, they are already producing non-medical devices that improve memory and brain performance.
Micropolarization can improve the brain health of children with autism and other brain disorders in a short period of time. In many children, micropolarization stops seizures. In traumatic lesions of the spinal cord and peripheral nerves, micropolarization leads to the healing of the injury and the cure of paresis and paralysis.
Micropolarization leads to the restoration of hearing in case of sensorineural hearing loss (until recently, it was treated only by wearing a hearing aid). We can say that the unique effects (see below) of micropolarization of the brain open up wide possibilities in the treatment of autistic children, in the treatment of epilepsy and hyperkinesis. In a new way it makes us look at the recovery of patients after strokes and injuries of the spinal cord and brain.
Sir John Carew Eccles received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the mechanisms of excitation and inhibition in nerve cells.
E. Pfluger's doctrine of the electroton, later developed by BF Verigo, was of great importance for the development of electrotherapy and electrodiagnostics of diseases of the nervous system.
Transcranial micropolarization of the brain in Kiev
The specialists of the Awatage clinic are the only ones in Kiev who have been trained in the application of the method of transcranial micropolarization of the brain at the Institute of Medical Rehabilitation (St. Petersburg), which is the developer of the unique apparatus "REAMED-Polaris".
Medical center "Awatage" is the official representative of the Institute of Medical Rehabilitation "Return" for teaching methods of micropolarization of the brain on the territory of Ukraine with the issuance of certificates.
Neurologists of the Awatage medical center directly participate in scientific conferences on neurorehabilitation with their own scientific reports (for more details - http://awatage.com/doklad-vrachej-kliniki-avatazh-na-vseukrainskom-forume-nejroreabilitatsii/). Micropolarization of the brain in Kiev is a new trend in neurology, but it has already established itself as a very effective method in the treatment of many complex diseases.
The device "REAMED-Polaris" is a registered medical equipment in the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. Sessions of micropolarization of the brain in the Awatage clinic in Kiev are exclusively under the supervision of a neurologist.
Micropolarization of the brain in Kiev at the Awatage clinic can be used as an independent therapeutic method and as an optimizing technique in the complex treatment of various diseases of the nervous system in children and adults of any age:
I. Cerebral palsy:
- spastic forms of varying severity;
- hyperkinetic forms of varying severity;
- cerebellar forms of varying severity;
- mixed forms of varying severity;
- delays in mental and speech development;
- convulsive syndrome.
II. Organic damage to the central nervous system.
III. Vascular diseases of the brain, craniocerebral trauma (including crush injuries) in the acute period, starting from 1-2 days after a cerebral accident.
The procedures can be performed in a state of medication sleep, while carrying out artificial ventilation. The use of transcranial micropolarization is indicated in acute focal traumatic brain injuries as an additional method of influencing the lesion and the perifocal zone. It can be used in intensive treatment regimens, when the patient does not require surgical treatment, during the postoperative period, as a way to prepare the patient for surgical treatment.
IV. The consequences of acute disorders of cerebral circulation and traumatic brain injuries in the form of hemiparesis, paraparesis, ataxia, aphasia, alalia, etc., as well as in the syndrome of "vegetative status".
V. Consequences of neuroinfectious diseases of the brain and spinal cord.
Vi. Severe poisoning by substances with anticholinergic action.
Vii. Consequences of spinal cord and spinal cord injuries, including the consequences of surgery.
VIII. Neuroses and neurosis-like states.
IX. Visual impairment (amblyopia, nystagmus, strabismus).
X. Hearing impairment (sensorineural hearing loss).
XI. Scoliotic disease of various degrees.
Contraindications to brain micropolarization procedures:
- Individual intolerance to electric current.
- The presence of malignant tumors.
- Colds and infectious diseases.
- High body temperature.
- The presence of foreign bodies in the skull (for example, bone substitute) or spine (for example, Harrington's distractor, etc.).
- Systemic blood disease.
- Essential hypertension III.
- Pronounced atherosclerosis of the cerebral vessels.
- Diseases of the cardiovascular system in the stage of decompensation.
- Skin defects in the affected area.
- muscle electrical and vibration stimulation,
- the use of various strong psychotropic drugs.
