Diathermy

What is a Diathermy?

It is a form of short-wave electromagnetic energy used to raise the temperature of certain soft tissues below the surface of the skin.

How does Diathermy work?

Unlike a heat lamp, the Diathermy energy field passes through the softer tissues near the surface of the body, turning into heat when reaching the more dense tissues below the surface. This increases blood circulation and can help speed the healing process.

Benefits of Diathermy

  • Can help speed the healing process.

  • Dilates blood vessels for improved circulation.

  • Stimulates white blood cell production.

  • Helps prevent adhesions and scar tissue.
