LONG WAVE DIATHERMY
Long wave diathermy is much better & superior modality for relieving pain, compared to Short wave diathermy & Ultrasound. Few points about long wave which makes it better treatment modalitycompared to SWD & Ultrasound:-
.Long wave works at 1 MHz, whereas Short wave works at 27.12 MHz, since long wave has less frequency, there will be minimal loss of energy.
.SWD produces heat dye to molecular friction, which causes tissue destruction.
.Long wave has power output of just 25 watts, where as SWD generates 250 to 1000 watts of power.
.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 45mins.
.Long wave has deep penetration of 40mm.
.Unlike Ultrasound, Long wave will not have any irritation to boney parts.
.Most of the energy remains in high density tissue like ligaments tendons. So very effective in ligaments & tendon tear.
.Wave Length: 300 meters.
.Frequency: 1 MHz
STEAM BATH THERAPY
Benefits of Steam Bath Therapy
The benefits of a steam bath have been known and practiced for centuries. Steam baths today are renowned for purifying and detoxifying the body, stimulating the immune system, increasing blood circulation, and promoting physical and mental well being.
Steam Bath the Ultimate Cleanse

Steam Baths Promote Good Health
Home steam baths are great for promoting good health. Allergy sufferers often turn to daily steam bath therapy as steam inhalation supports the respiratory system and may help sufferers to alleviate their sinus afflictions.
Relax Muscles in Steam Bath Tranquility
Steam baths generate heat, which in turns helps aching muscles to relax, widening the blood vessels, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to flow through them, and in turn releasing tension. Many users feel that the heat generated by steam causes the whole body to slip into a state of inner sanctum rendering steam baths perfect for those who suffer from arthritis or consistent muscle pain.
Steam Baths are Eco Friendly
Steam showers conserve more water than the regular shower or bath. With green concerns on the rise, steam bath units take only two gallons of to power a 20 minute steam bath as opposed to regular showers which can consume 30 gallons of water. Taking a steam bath is responsibly green!
Steam Bath Dream
Relaxation inducing steam bathing is known to help promote a better night's sleep, resulting in a more revitalized you.
SCANNER LASER
LASER is abbreviation for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Scanning LASER Therapy consist of highly precise LASER Optics system to deliver LASER energy to a given area of treatment. The LASER optics is driven by LASER reflecting mirrors mounted on very high motor controlled by microprocessors. This system allows the user to quickly set the area of treatment & thereby easily deliver even dose of laser energy to a given area without the need of an operator. Scanning laser is the best method of treating all types of wound, burns and superficial pains such as LOW BACK PAIN Today LASER is one of the most sophisticated methods of treating chronic wounds, ulcers, diabetic foot etc. Many sports injuries such as tennis elbow, golf elbow,supraspinitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome can be very affective treated with LASER. Common pain problems such as low back pain, neck pain,spondilitis and osteoarthritis can also be treated effectively with LASER.
ULTRAVOILET RADIATION
Psoriasis, cancer, Antibiotic effects, Acne,Wound healing (both infected & non infected) vitamin D synthesis.
