When used in both rehabilitation and recovery settings, diathermy can help patients improve their circulation and range of motion, at the same time reducing both swelling and pain. Shortwave diathermy works by generating high-frequency, electromagnetic energy which aids in increasing cellular metabolism which in turn improves recovery time. This is beneficial in both clinical and training settings.
