Ultrasound therapy causes mechanical vibrations,from high frequency sound waves, on skin and soft tissue via an aqueous solution (Gel). A gel is applied either to the applicator head or to the skin,which helps the sound waves to evenly penetrate the skin.
The ultrasound applicator converts power from the device into acoustic power that can cause thermal or non-thermal effects. The sound waves creates microscopic stimulation in the deep tissue molecules that increases heat and friction. The warming effect encourages and promotes healing in the soft tissues by increasing the metabolism at the level of the tissue cells.
The effect of therapeutic ultrasound via an increase in local blood flow may help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and, according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing. The intensity or power density of the ultrasound can be adjusted depending on the desired effect. A higher power density (measured in watt/cm2) may soften or breakdown scar tissue.
* Soft tissue injuries.
* Chronic strains and sprains.
* Myositis – the inflammation of muscle tissues.
* Bursitis – inflammation of the fluid-field pads surrounding joints.
* Tendonitis – inflammation of the tissue connecting the muscles to the bones.
* Tendon Sheath Inflammation.
* Plantar fasciitis.
Equipped with 2 handles, two handles can work at the same time or take turns.
When you go in for ultrasound therapy, your therapist will select a small surface area to work on for anywhere from five to 10 minutes. A gel is applied either to the transducer head or to your skin, which helps the sound waves evenly penetrate the skin.
The probe vibrates, sending waves through the skin and into the body.
These waves cause the underlying tissue to vibrate, which can have a variety of benefits which we will look at below. In general, ultrasound therapy sessions will last no longer than 5 minutes.
But coming to physical therapy 2 times a week is just not enough time for the actual changes to occur. Research suggests it takes at 3-5 days of consistent, targeted strength training for at least 2-3 weeks to see changes in your muscles.
