Transeva Therapy

What is Transeva Therapy and  how does it work?

Transeva Therapy and the Winks Greene Transeva is the result of continued extensive development of a physiotherapeutic machine using Faradic principles.

It is based on the innovative work started over 50 years ago by Sir Charles Strong - specialist Physiotherapist to the Royal Family.

It works by applying a low current electrical impulse to the body through a hand-held electrode. This impulse, called a Faradic wave, stimulates rhythmic muscle contraction in the patient and has a number of positive effects. Firstly, by initiating contraction of the muscle, there is an increase in blood flow to the area, bringing a large supply of oxygen and nourishment to the injured part.

There are many ways of bringing in blood to an injured area, but Transeva is unique in that it increases the return circulation of metabolic waste products at the same rate, therefore preventing congestion in the tissue which could slow healing time.  With improved nourishment and more efficient waste removal, the muscle is allowed to heal and return to its normal tone and function in less time!

Muscle injuries often go hand-in-hand with injuries to nerves, which can lead to muscle weakness and possibly wasting of muscle tissue. Transeva Therapy’s action of muscle contraction simultaneously encourages nerve integration, thus preventing further wasting and allowing muscles to heal and return to normal faster and with less chance of re-injury.

Transeva Therapy breaks through adhesions and scarring which may start to form in the muscles, especially in the case of more chronic injuries. This is important, as adhesions and scarring can prevent the muscle from contracting at its full potential, which may lead to pain, further injury and of course decreased muscle strength.

Who can benefit?

Transeva Therapy can be used on anyone who has a current, past or re-occurring injury and has shown great success in sports men and women, who present with injuries attained on the field or during training.

Transeva Therapy can help with or improve the following common injuries and conditions:

  • General muscular injuries
  • Tendons
  • Joints
  • Sprains (Acute and  Chronic – Chronic stage resulting from adhesions)
  • Strains, Sprains and  dislocations
  • Dislocation
  • Nerve Injuries
  • Haematoma in muscles
  • Fibrositis
  • Whiplash
  • ITB friction syndrome
  • Calf and hamstring strains
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Loss of movement
  • Tension headaches and migraines
  • Scar Tissue injuries
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Sprained ligaments, especially of knee and ankle
  • Numbness
  • Pins and Needles
  • Clears inflammation and relieves pain
  • Enhances post-surgery rehabilitation
  • Speeds up recovery from an injury
  • Quicker recovery post race
  • Breaks through scar tissue
  • Back spasms and chronic tension
  • Facilitates muscle and nerve integration releasing nerve entrapment
