    The method of Tecar therapy is used in the treatment of joint diseases, in particular, osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint damage and one of the leading causes of disability in the world. According to statistics, in the age group from 25 to 74 years, about 30% of the population have joint pathology confirmed by radiation diagnostic methods. The main symptom of osteoarthritis, which forces the patient to seek specialized help, is pain. The frequently detected discrepancy between the severity of clinical and radiological manifestations of the disease is explained by the peculiarities of the formation and irradiation of pain in pathology. The study included 80 patients with radiologically confirmed diagnoses: 35 patients suffering from coxarthrosis (stages 2-3) and 45 patients suffering from gonarthrosis (stages 2-3). Of these, 38% are men. Pain intensity was assessed by a 10-point visual-analog pain scale (VAPS). Reduction of pain level by 5-6 points was assessed as significant for joints. It is also advisable to prescribe Tekar therapy for neuropathies of various etiologies since clinical experience shows a significant and rapid reduction of pain and inflammation after its implementation, which reduces the recovery time of such patients and improves their quality of life.
