Long Wave Diathermy
Long wave therapy is much better and superior modality for relieving pain, compared to shortwave (SWD) and ultrasound therapy for india as well as International market.Few points about Long wave, which makes it superior to SWD and ultrasound therapy are, long wave works at 1 MHz. where as SWD works at 27.12 MHz. long wave has less frequency so there will be minimum loss of energy. SWD produces heat due to molecular friction, which causes tissues destruction. unlike SWD, Long wave will not produce any interference with other equipments. Long wave can be used with patients having metal implants, Heat generated due to Long wave will remain for 30 min. Long wave has deep penetration of 4 mm. Unlike ultrasound, Long wave will not have any irritation to boney parts. most of the energy remains in high density tissue like ligaments, tendons.
