Background: For the past few years, treatment of contusions and associated symptoms, such as bruising, pain, and loss of function, has involved instrument-based therapies, ie, lasers, electromagnetic fields, and electrical stimulation. In this study, tissue optimization (TO) sessions were applied using a radioelectric asymmetric conveyor (REAC) for the treatment of contusions and associated symptoms.
Methods: Six subjects were treated with 12–18 sessions of REAC-TO applied to a traumatized anatomical area.
Results: In all cases, REAC-TO sessions were found to be effective for the treatment of post-traumatic injuries involving hematomas, hemorrhagic suffusion, and loss of function. In addition, REAC-TO treatments represented a rapid-acting analgesic associated with antiedematous, anti-inflammatory, and regenerative effects. These findings are consistent with the results of previous studies, and confirm the capacity of REAC-TO to provide almost immediate recovery of function in traumatized areas.
Conclusion: As previously demonstrated in vitro, REAC-TO is able to promote regeneration and repair processes in the human body. For six subjects experiencing local trauma, REAC-TO was effective in speeding the healing time of contusion symptoms and providing recovery of function.
