Hako-Med Horizontal Therapy on Hilton Head Island

woman enjoying coffeeHako-Med Horizontal Therapy (ProElec DT 2000) represents a revolution in electromedicine. The therapy is a combination of all types of electromedical treatment. Clinically proven and safe, Hako-Med is the only patented therapy that allows the simultaneous formation of biochemical and bioelectric effects in the same tissue. It is the most advanced form of electrotherapy offered.

Hako-Med, which is a German company, engineered and constructed this state-of-the-art device to develop a distinctive electrotherapy treatment model—Horizontal Therapy. Over the years, the field of electromedicine has progressed and given us electrical muscle stimulation, TENS therapy, microcurrent and interferential therapy.

Each of these methods of electrotherapy plays a specific part in addressing a variety of conditions. However, none of them come close to achieving the therapeutic effects that are attained by combining the PRO ElecDT 2000 with Horizontal Therapy.

The Importance of Cell Communication

Communication between cells occurs in two ways: bioelectrically and biochemically. That communication takes place through electrical currents and chemical messengers whether the cells are in bone, muscle, ligament or nerve tissue. Pain and disease happen when there is an impairment in cellular communication. A person also can lose normal function.

In past years, bioelectrical or biochemical communication could be boosted with electrotherapy at one time, but not both simultaneously. With Horizontal Therapy, both bioelectrical and biochemical elements can be addressed in a single session. By maintaining the bioelectric intensity but adjusting the frequency, Horizontal Therapy can have an extensive range of physiologic outcomes. The PRO ElecDT 2000 preset programs are created to accomplish this automatically.

Conditions Horizontal Therapy Can Address

A broad range of conditions respond well to Horizontal Therapy:

  • Back pain
  • Complex chronic pain
  • Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Foot pain
  • Hand and wrist pain
  • Inflammation
  • Joint swelling
  • Knee pain
  • Lack of range of motion
  • Muscle spasm
  • Neck pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Post-op pain
  • Sciatic pain
  • Shoulder pain

At low frequencies in the bioelectric range, the following can improve: circulation, lymphatic flow, swelling, pain and muscle function. At higher frequencies in the biochemical breadth, circulation, lymphatic flow, swelling, pain, immune system function, muscle activation and metabolism improve.

Relax During Your Session

Your sessions will be held in the tranquil Regenerative Therapy Room at Fraum Center for Restorative Health. You can relax, read or even doze off during the session. Over a period of time (and sometimes in one or two sessions), you can experience reduced pain and stiffness as well as greater range of motion.
