Heat Therapy

We use a number of treatment techniques to apply heat.

Short Wave Diathermy / Pulsed Short Wave Diathermy
Shortwave Diathermy machines emit electromagnetic waves which penetrate deep into your body’s tissues at a specific level for your problem. This in turn increases blood-flow to promote healing, gives pain relief and produces a heating effect to relax tissues. The use of pulsed short wave diathermy reduces the heating output but concentrates on the electromagnetic effect, deep within the tissue.

Radiant Heat
Radiant heat is regularly used in conjunction with our ‘hands on’ approach to your problem to aid rapid healing to your body’s injured tissues. We use it often when applying frictional or therapeutic massage.
