Diathermy is a form of instrumental physical therapy that reactivates the normal physiological processes of tissue metabolism, transferring energy and applying to the biological field the physical principle of the capacitor and/or resistor.
The homogeneous increase in depth of the temperature generated by the electrode does not cause overheating of the skin.
The structures and tissues are treated through a complete set of electrodes of different sizes, allowing to apply the therapy in depth and effectively on any osteo-myarticular structure of the human body.
The displacement currents produce three types of effects:
These three effects reinforce each other. The action of diathermy therapy therefore involves all tissues both deep and homogeneous.
The main effects of biostimulation are:
