Diathermy is a technique involving the production of heat in a part of the body by high-frequency electric currents. This therapy uses heat to stimulate the circulation, relieve pain, destroy unhealthy tissue, or cause bleeding vessels to clot. This therapy is beneficial for Waterbury patients suffering from muscle or joint conditions.*
