Ladies and gentlemen: ATHERMIA
Ladies and gentlemen: ATHERMIA
that does not transmit heat: no thermal.
Managing radiofrequency at sub-thermal doses.
Who sells it has made a war of terms and who uses it has not yet understood what it is.
The physiotherapist knows that when we talk about movement as medicine, the technique of performing the administered therapeutic exercise is fundamental.
When the Physiotherapist talks about physical therapy, specifically about Tecartherapy applied in sub-thermal doses, do you know what is fundamental?
The answer is no.
I discovered this reality in a large room full of physiotherapists.
Stop for a moment though, and go back to reading the title of this article:
You find the characteristics of something “cool”, trendy, in short, successful. There is a description of a practice that if you don’t have it, you are a second-tier Tecarterapist.
But how cool is it today to say that I, the Tecarterapist, “do the Athermia”?
The answer is: “so cool”.
- What are they saying?
- And above all: why?
- What do they mean when they say “I do Athermia?”
- What do you mean by Athermia?
- How do you identify work at athermal level?
- What tools do you have in Tecarterapia?
- Can you measure this Athermia?
- In what terms do you describe the successes of the application of Tecar applied in athermal conditions?
- What experimental bases do you refer?
But let’s stop for a moment.
It seemed to be in a movie:
General Massimo, reviewing the troops at the time of the battle, said: “At my signal unleash hell”!
I felt out of place because I am not General Massimo, and that was an assembly and not a battlefield.
Some physiotherapists got up from their seats and wanted to let others and especially me know that I had provoked them, that they knew well what they were saying.
I got the most colourful and meaningless answers I could hear.
I’ve heard of them all:
“If the Tecar does not heat, it operated in sub-term, but it is an untruth because, inside the biological tissues, the heat always increases.”
“Athermic does not exist, and the Tecar, if it does not heat, does not work.”
“If the Tecar does not heat, you are working in hypothermia.”
The people present continued to give piles of answers, comments and rumours that seemed to be in in a crowded market.
So I witnessed the creation of factions and a squabble that gradually condensed into the most stigmatizing question of a girl who defiantly asks me:
“But does your Tecar device make you feel tired?”
The situation I was witnessing was apocalyptic:
There were a large number of operators gathered by those who sold him the Tecartherapy machines and they were all in there asking the wrong questions, driven by the desire to be cool because they had the word “Athermia” in their mouth!
My question instead, almost trivial:
How was it possible?
Perhaps they had been drugged by some strange substance sprayed in the hall.
Had they undergone some direct and invasive surgery such as lobotomy?
The answer I give to these questions makes me sad:
They are all chosen.
They are victims of hammering actions of very effective communication campaigns that have poorly conditioned them in their choices, has “academicized” them by teaching them comfortable behavioural formats.
They abandoned themselves to being chosen and did not take the responsibility of choosing.
They let themselves lulled by flattering compliments and confidential winks of sales agents who then allowed themselves to make them uncomfortable by saying:
“You can’t work without Tecartherapy!”
… “You can’t get today.”
… “The greatest athletes of every sport use it.”
… “The most famous of sports therapists, the most advanced universities.”
