A form of shortwave electro-magnetic energy used to raise the temperature of certain soft tissues below the surface of the skin. 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. Patient benefits include, but not limited to, stimulating white blood cell production and dilating blood vessels for improved circulation. Diathermy can help patients dealing with cystitis, sinus/chest congestion, bronchitis, ear infections, and allergy related issues.
