Electromagnetic therapy with short waves


Shortwave therapy

 This therapy relates to electromagnetic radiation in the frequency range 2 to 100 MHz. Shortwave treatment is the application of electromagnetic energy in the body at short frequencies.  

  At these frequencies the electromagnetic energy is converted into thermal energy by inducing circulating currents in the tissue and dielectric absorption in the insulating tissue. Shortwave therapy units can produce output power levels of up to 500 W, providing significant heating in the treated area. For this reason, the treatment is often called shortwave diathermy (by heating).
