Diathermy

Diathermy is a form of shortwave elector-magnetic energy. It is used to raise the temperature of soft tissues below the skin's surface. The Diathermy energy field passes through softer surface tissues and turns to heat when reaching more dense tissues. The heat increases circulation and helps to speed the healing process.
It helps increase range of motion and decrease muscle spasm by relaxing muscles and connective tissues. Diathermy dilates the blood vessels, thus improving circulation and increasing metabolism and waste removal. It stimulates white blood cell production and helps to prevent adhesions and scar tissue. Overall, Diathermy helps to speed the healing process.
