What is it?

Diathermy is a deep tissue heat treatment.

How does it work?

The temperature of the injured tissues is raised by a high frequency current and deep heat speeds up healing by increasing blood flow to the injury/pain.

What does it treat?

Diathermy is beneficial in the treatment of chronic arthritis, bursitis, fractures, gynaecologic diseases and helps reduce pain, relieve muscle spasm, decrease soft-tissue contractures, resolve inflammation and promote healing.  Diathermy is also used to remove skin tags, warts and moles and is a successful method for removing thread veins by cauterising capillaries and small veins that are engorged with blood.
