Energy for Health n.3

The 3rd issue of "Energy for health" is a special issue dedicated to the International Conference on Hilterapia®, held in Venice on 29 November 2009.
The papers presented at the Conference describe the results of clinical studies on the application of Hilterapia® in the treatment of muscle injuries of athletes, of knee osteoarthritis, low back pain, post-surgical pain in carpal tunnel syndrome and of disorders of the proprioceptive balance system. There is also an article that reports the results of the research conducted by ASAcampus on molecular and cellular mechanisms. Finally, there are abstracts of studies which will be completed over the coming months.

In this issue:
