Who Uses Ultrasound Therapy Machines?
Therapeutic Ultrasound is a modality primarily used by physical therapists, orthopedists, sports trainers, chiropractors and veterinarians. Ultrasound therapy is used to treat a multiple of issues, but primarily helps to reduce joint pain, arthritis pain and muscle pain. Several scientific studies have documented the positive use of therapeutic ultrasound in reducing pain and inflammation while also improve functional movement.
How Do Ultrasound Therapy Machines Work?
During an ultrasound therapy treatment, a soundhead applicator will generate high frequency sound waves. These sound waves penetrate deeply into the tissues of the treated area. The size of the applicator can help target specific areas, with smaller applicators (1cm or 5 cm) perfect for ankles and knees and larger applicators (10 cm) good for areas like the low back.
The soundwaves of an ultrasound treatment create deep vibrations. These vibrations heat the soft tissues, such as tendons, ligaments and muscles which also promotes blood flow at the injury site. This increased blood flow is beneficial because it brings nutrients and oxygen to the damaged tissue and helps facilitate tissue healing.
Ultrasound Machine Treatment Protocol
The frequency used of the ultrasound machine will depend on the type of injury. For example, deeper penetration of sound waves is achieved when the frequency is lowered. Meaning, 1Mhz frequency is better for dealing with deeper tissue injuries like sciatic nerve pain.
Using ultrasound machines at frequencies higher than 1Mhz (such as 3Mhz and 5Mhz) are good for injuries found closer to surface of the skin, like lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow. A normal ultrasound therapy session usually lasts anywhere from 4 – 15 minutes, depending on the injury severity, location and patient needs.
