Short Wave Diathermy

It is a therapeutic treatment most commonly prescribed for joint conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Indiathermy, a high-frequency electric current is delivered via shortwave, to generate deep heat in body tissues. Use of SWD to cure Rheumatoid arthritis, Chronic osteoarthritis, Tendinitis, Capsulitis ,Pelvic inflammatory diseases ,Low back pain ,In bacterial infection the body’s own defensive mechanism (immunity) comes into action in the form of increased exudation of fluid into the tissues, vasodilatation causing increased blood flow, concentration of WBCs and antibodies. Heating the tissues by SWD increases these processes and therefore increases (enhance) the body’s own defense mechanism, Boils, Abscess, Carbuncle etc. Increased exudation of fluid, increased metabolism and increased blood flow help in the removal of waste products and increased availability of nutritive material which enhance healing process.For joint stiffness which occurs through trauma, SWD is applied in stronger dose to cause a thermal effect in the tissue which enhances the extensibility of the collagen fibers. This makes it easy for the physical therapist to mobilize the joint. Hamstring flexibility can be greatly improved by applying SWD with stretching exercises.
