What is Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound therapy is also known as therapeutic ultrasound or focused ultrasound. Ultrasound therapy is a non-invasive treatment, the handle of the ultrasound therapy machine releases sound waves to penetrate soft tissues and accelerate blood flow and circulation. This can help to relieve pain, improve blood circulation and promote tissue healing.
For this reason, ultrasound therapy is often used to treat injuries and muscle spasms, as well as chronic problems such as neck or back pain.
What is Ultrasound Therapy can Use for
Studies have shown that ultrasound therapy can be used effectively as an early, non-invasive option for the treatment of certain chronic pain conditions.
Ultrasound therapy is potentially useful in the treatment of pain associated with the following conditions:
Ultrasound therapy has been approved as a treatment modality for many chronic pain conditions and more research is still being carried out into other possible uses.
Different Ultrasound Therapy Machine Types
There are two types of therapeutic ultrasound: thermal and mechanical.
In thermal ultrasound therapy, the wand causes the skin and muscles to vibrate and heat up. Thermal ultrasound therapy is used to treat stretching pain, soft tissue pain and other musculoskeletal problems.
In mechanical ultrasound, which relies on mechanical vibrations to penetrate soft tissues, the waves generated by ultrasound create a pressure difference in the tissue fluid, resulting in the formation of tiny bubbles. The tiny bubbles rapidly expand/contract and are thought to reduce swelling and inflammation. Mechanical ultrasound is also thought to help break up scar tissue and deposits, such as painful kidney stones.
Benefits and Limitations of Using Ultrasound Therapy Machine
There are many benefits to using ultrasound therapy as part of physiotherapy for pain relief. For example.
If any of the following conditions, Ultrasound therapy treatment is not recommended:
Ultrasound Therapy Treatment Machine Recommend for Pain Relief
If you are looking for an ultrasound machine for pain relief, the astiland AS-VX1 is recommended. It has both shockwave therapy and ultrasound therapy handles, i.e. it combines shockwave therapy and ultrasound therapy into one system. In addition to ultrasound therapy, shockwave therapy will help to obtain better pain relief and injury recovery results.
