Severe back pain, had gold ring on finger and belt with steel buckle while on diathermy. Any harm?

Hi, I was getting sever pain in my back hence as recommended by a doc to a physotherapist. He did put me on diathermy for 10 min for 2 day unfortunately I was wearing a gold ring in my finger and a belt having a steel buckel but not tight to my stomach . The heating pads were on my neck and lower back having no metal between the pad n my body. I was pretty tensed if this would upset my body since I have heard diathermy is very bad. Pls advise

Hi, Issacfern,
Thanks for query.
Nothing to worry.
Heat given in diathermy is very mild and does not produce any bad effect on your body.
Wearing metal has nothing to do with diathermy.
Ok and bye.
