What Is Radio Frequency Therapy?
- Type: Free
Radio frequency therapy is a new treatment in that high-frequency electromagnetic energy penetrates into the tissue. The energy contained in RF is the lowest amount of electromagnetic radiation energy and exerts a very deep thermal effect on the target tissue. If you suffer from any muscle or joint pain, radio frequency therapy can help relieve your pain.
Benefits of Radio Frequency Therapy
Radio frequency therapy is used to treat various diseases in the field of physiotherapy, such as:
- Neck pain
- To treat cellulite
- Local Slimming (hip, abodman, breasts, thighs, arms)
- Cosmetic (body contouring)
- To treat frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
How long does the radio frequency effect last?
Most patients experience rapid pain relief in the target tissue after RF treatment. But typically, patients are completely cured after 3 to 5 sessions.
Radio Frequency Therapy Side Effects
According to most experts and the patients themselves who have used this therapy for treatment, no side effects have been observed or reported.
Types of Radio Frequency Therapy
Mono polar and bipolar methods are used to transmit RF to the targeted tissue.
In the mono polar transmission method, according to its name, it has a pole and waves enter the body from a single pole, which requires a pad or ground connection to use it, which flows the waves deeper into the tissue.
In the bipolar transmission method, the waves do not flow in the body and there is no need to use a ground connection or pad. The waves flow to the tissue more superficially.
