    Clinicians must know the capabilities of therapeutic modalities. My research has shown that short-wave diathermy can heat an area 25 times larger than an ultrasound device can heat, yet many clinicians continue to use ultrasound to treat large areas of tissue. Short-wave diathermy devices may...
