Physiotherapist using a pulsed shortwave diathermy device for pain relief on a woman's forearm. The woman is recovering from a broken radius (one of the two bones in the forearm), and has started exercising her arm following the removal of a plaster cast. Diathermy, a form of heat treatment giving pain relief by increasing blood flow, helps speed up the natural recovery process.
