Diadynamic therapy is a type of electrotherapy which uses certain parameters of electric current: sine-wave current at the frequency of 50– Hz. The current is. Didynamic Currents. It is basically a variation of sinusoidal currents. Sinusoidal currents are alternating low frequency currents, having frequency of 50 Hz and. Diadynamic current MF. Diadynamic currents are unidirectional currents, what’s more, until recently, they were applied with the superposition.

Due to the ease of generation of this diasynamic shape, they have been known almost from the beginning of electrotherapy, and their influence on the human body has been thoroughly studied. It should be increased gradually until definite vibration or prickling sensation occurs. The carrier frequency is a sine wave, operating at 50Hz or 60Hz USA which is then rectified full wave or half wave. Share buttons are a little bit lower.

DF is full wave rectification providing pulses per second, each of which will be the same duration 10ms but with a zero interpulse interval. Connective tissue trauma [Ligament sprains Phantom pain. It can be used as Faradic stimulation of muscles Motor test of nerve excitability. Auth with social network: This factor is important in the treatment of posttraumatic and peripheral circulatory disorders.

It is used with combination of CP in treatment of neuralgia. Method of performing treatment The analgesic effect of diadynamic currents is based on determining a limit at which the current flow is becoming painful. Currently, because of curdent studies that have not confirmed the effectiveness of this solution, the base has been withdrawn from the application. Published by Amice West Modified over 3 years ago.


MF current with the frequency of 50 Hz causes hypertonia.

Diadynamic therapy

Skin damage is due to electrochemical changes and changes in the pH value of the skin. Share buttons are a little bit lower. My presentations Profile Feedback Log out. The original Bernard reference and Belanger book chpater the most useful one I can find are at the end of the reference list.

Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. Abrupt changes between the idadynamic MF current and relaxing DF current. In order to elicit vascular reaction also the following sequence may be applied:. Diadynamic current has relative high DC amplitude, so that crrent is a significant chance of skin damage occurrence.

The analgesic effect of diadynamic currents is based on determining a limit at which the current flow is becoming painful. Vascular reaction mechanism is based on the stimulation of nerve endings. If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. It has the ability to move fluids. Some common answers to the most frequently asked questions on Electrotherapy, particularly in the area of Contraindications. In order to elicit vascular reaction also the durrent sequence may be applied: Method of performing treatment.

Pulse duration is extremely long, msec so, it is more painful. Basic Principles of Electricity Jennifer L. To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors.

Not more than 12 minutes; each type for 3 minutes. We think you have liked this presentation. Given the long pulse duration, uncomfortable nature of the stimulation and minimal specific research, it is difficult to determine the actual advantage over any other kind of electrical stimulation at equivalent pulse frequencies.

Treatments are especially effective when dealing with not very severe pain, but disruptive in nature due to its chronicity. Muscle re-education Increase local circulation.

Direct Currents Characterized by a continuous flow of electrons in one direction Characterized by a continuous flow of electrons. It is used for treatment of pain without muscle spasm.

It is used for the initial treatment and before application of other currents. Such a sequence is nothing but the CP waveform.

It can be used for faradic stimulation of the muscle and as a test for motor nerve excitability. The Can et al study compared TENS with Diadynamic therapy for a group of patients with patellofemoral pain, showing that both therapies were effective in terms of pain management but that there was not significant difference between the two.

Trancutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation.

Diadynamic Therapy

Parameters and waveform Diadynamic currents are based on a sine wave with a frequency of 50Hz. Home areas of physiotherapy Electrotherapy Laser therapy Magnetotherapy physio veterinary medicine Shock wave therapy Ultrasound therapy about us contact.

Diadyna,ic standard electrotherapy texts cover this therapy in a very superficial way, and a considerable proportion of the literature is not easily available in English – no reason why it should be – but it means that I have difficulty accessing it!!!

In the treatment of pain syndromes, a particular sequence is recommended:. Stimulation of endorphins release is another factor triggering off an analgesic effect.
