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.

My presentations Profile Feedback Log out. The rate of injury or tissue deformation. TENS versus diadynamic current therapy for pain relief.

It can be used as Faradic stimulation of muscles Motor test of nerve excitability. The current currnet predominantly inhibitory effect has the frequency Hz, current with frequency 50 Hz acts rather dynamogenically, i. The use of diadynamic therapy – another form of electrical diaynamic – varies widely between different countries. MF current with the frequency of 50 Hz causes hypertonia.

The analgesic effect of diadynamic currents may be also seen as consistent with the gate control theory. Daily or every other day for 12 sessions.

Diadynamic therapy

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. Effect and application Impact of diadynamic currents: Can be used on metal implants.

Over osteomyleities Over anterior cervical. If several nerves roots are involved, the electrodes may be applied alongside the spine at the highest and lowest nerve root levels. The patient feels a strong vibration for longer time than the sensation of DF. Paris Useful Book Chapters: Experimentally cuerent ischaemic pain and so called diaphase fix current. Some common answers to the most frequently asked questions on Electrotherapy, particularly in the area of Contraindications. Method of performing treatment.


It is, for example, relatively rarely used in the UK, whilst in mainland Europe it has a stronger following. In the treatment of pain syndromes, a particular sequence is recommended: Typical indications for use include a wide range of clinical problems where high voltage may be applied alone or in combination with other modalities.

To keep the risk of skin damage to minimum, treatment time should be limited to ten minutes. This practice is as old as medicine itself. The analgesic effect of diadynamic dizdynamic is based on determining a limit at which the current flow is becoming painful.

While used clinically over the cuerent 45 years, this type of stimulation and its applications have received much more attention in the last five years. The negative pad is like heat, promoting increased circulation, reportedly speeding healing. Several types of diadynamic fiadynamic are commonly applied, which differ in shape and order of the half-sine waves. Vasotropic Application Along the vascular paths affected the circulatory disorders being treated. Facilitation of tissue healing. Auth with social network: Due to the ease of generation of this current shape, they have been known almost from the beginning of electrotherapy, and their influence on the human body has been thoroughly studied.


In order to elicit vascular reaction also the following sequence may be applied: Resources Courses A wide range of Electrotherapy Courses are delivered throughout the UK, Europe and Worldwide with varying content, aims and duration. Books Current books on Electrotherapy with brief descriptions and links to Amazon pages for purchase.

Diadynamic Currents

If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. It can be used for faradic stimulation of the muscle and as a test for motor nerve excitability.

Diadynamic currents are based on a sine wave with a frequency of 50Hz. Galvanic stimulation combines very short pulse duration of constant intensity and high peak voltage, yet low total current per second, to give relative comfort and avoid tissue damage while stimulating deep tissues.

Diadynamic Current Dr. Mohammed Taher Ahmed edu

It is used with combination of CP in treatment of neuralgia. Diadynamic currents affect the alteration of the muscle tissue excitability.

The patient feels a prickling sensation, which subsides after a short time. LP waveform is very similar and it gives much the same results.
