Longwave Therapy

Now Longwave Therapy is available in all “near me” location in Noida, Greater Noida, Noida Extention, Ghaziabad & Delhi NCR locations.

Longwave Therapy Overview:

In Longwave Therapy, the sound energy is used by increasing the frequency of the sound above the hearing range. The frequency is made around 16Hz – 20,000 Hz. Although the nature of the energy does not change, mechanical energy is used in this case. Ultrasound is usually around 1 and 3 MHz, whereas Longwave ultrasound in the 40 – 50 kHz range is used. The greater wavelength will penetrate deep in the deeper tissues and give the traditional ultrasound that can be able to achieve the required treatment. Various researches on the ‘kilohertz’ and ‘longwave’ have been done to achieve the required treatment. Although some studies consider this therapy as superficial, still, in many cases, Longwave Therapy has given better results.

How does Longwave Therapy work?

In Longwave Therapy, you can expect a very faster healing process. The sound with longwave penetrates deep in the tissues which minimize the pain and heals the area faster. It also enhances the body to pace-up the regenerative process of the tissues. Here, one can expect the treatment at a faster rate without gaining more pain or stress on the body. One needs to be very positive to make this treatment more effective.

Irregular muscle flexibility is an essential physical skill since inferior muscle flexibility raises the danger of various musculoskeletal injuries like muscle strain and low back pain joint in athletes. To primary and enhance muscle, athletes, and therapists use different techniques like extending and thermotherapy. Thermotherapy is the therapeutic application of heat to the entire body, causing increased tissue thickness. Thermotherapy brings numerous advantages by boosting tissue temperature, such as an increase in soft tissue extensibility. Thermotherapy may also promote blood flow by inducing vasodilation.

Things to expect:

Longwave can treat a more prominent place than Ultrasound. Longwave can treat a more significant region than Shortwave. Longwave Diathermy is mostly employed for Tendinitis, Low back pain, Myalgia, Arthrosis, Bursitis, Ligament accidents, and Ankle distortion. Dr. Aggarwal, an expert physiotherapist will first detect the pain area and deliver the Longwave Therapy accordingly. Here, the patients can expect instant relief along with a nice treatment. One Advance feature of Longwave Therapy is it has No Side Effects and it is a 100% Painless treatment.

Longwave Therapy can be used for around 4 to 6 sessions. It will be used in reducing the swelling of the tissues and decrease the pain.

What is the purpose of longwave therapy?

Longwave can treat a more prominent place than Ultrasound. Longwave can treat a more significant region than Shortwave. Longwave Diathermy is mostly employed for Tendinitis, Low back pain, Myalgia, Arthrosis, Bursitis, Ligament accidents, and Ankle distortion.

Are there any limitations to Longwave Therapy?

There are no limitations for Longwave Therapy. It is always recommended that you get relaxation for the next day to enhance the healing process.

Benifits of Longwave Therapy:

Treating accidents with warmth can increase blood circulation and make connective tissues more elastic. Additionally, it may help alleviate inflammation and lower the incidence of edema or fluid retention.

It is very useful for following conditions:

  • sprains and strains
  • arthritis
  • muscle spasms
  • bursitis
  • fibromyalgia
  • myositis
  • neuralgia
  • tenosynovitis
  • tendonitis
  • back pain
