We also understand that it’s essential to find equipment that is on the cutting edge of innovation.
That’s why we will only offer equipment that delivers outstanding results.
Why Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound therapy is a powerful therapeutic modality utilized by:
Used as a therapeutic modality since the 1940’s, ultrasound therapy creates a heating effect which is caused by the location of crystals located in the sound head. The sound waves then create a vibration within the tissues at injured area. This vibration is able to generate a deep heating effect deep within the tissues. This benefits the injured area by improving circulation by opening up the blood vessels which allows more oxygen to the injured site which in turn generates tissue repair.
Therapeutic ultrasound uses a frequency of 0.8-3.0 MHZ and uses an applicator or wand, that has a gel applied to the surface in order to prevent friction but aid in the transmission of the ultrasound waves.
Ultrasound works on a chemical level deep within the tissues, creating cellular change without any discomfort on behalf of the patient. When a patient receives therapeutic ultrasound, small bubbles are formed, also called a cavitational effect, that can stimulate the cells when their conducted via vibration. This physical stimulation benefits the inflammatory system by triggering cellular repair.
In addition to its ability to heat tissue, ultrasound therapy has been found in many research studies to provide many benefits including:
Facilitates relaxation of tissue
Increases local blood flow
Reduces swelling & inflammation
Breaks down scar tissue
Administers medications below the skin (making a perfect alternative for patients uncomfortable with injections)
The Therapeutic Uses of Ultrasound Therapy
Carpal Tunnel: Ultrasound therapy is beneficial not only in lowering pain associated with carpal tunnel, but it also helps reduce inflammation and by delivering oxygen to the injured tissue, stimulating cell-repair. Ultrasound therapy is a powerful component in successfully treating carpal tunnel when it’s used in conjunction with nerve and tendon exercises.
Migraines: Migraines can cause acute migraine pain. By helping to relax the tense muscles of the head, neck and shoulders, therapeutic ultrasound is beneficial in reducing acute migraine pain.
Radiating Pain: Radiating pain is caused by pressure or inflammation on a nerve. Ultrasound therapy improves circulation by helping the blood vessels to open allowing them to deliver more oxygen and reducing inflammation in radiating pain sites.
Sciatica: Research has shown that ultrasound therapy when used before stretching the piriformis muscle, can help reduce sciatic pain. The deep heating of ultrasound is able to penetrate the deep soft tissue of the piriformis which aids the piriformis muscle to relax around the sciatic nerve.
Bursitis: Strengthening the hip muscles is an important part of treating bursitis, but first pain and inflammation must be decreased. Ultrasound therapy can help lower pain, reduce swelling and any muscular spasms associated with Bursitis.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain: When treating TMJ, the ultrasound applicator is used on the jaw itself. By increasing blood flow to the jaw, inflammation and pain decreases.
Athletic Injuries: Ultrasound is useful to treat athletic injuries. Therapeutic ultrasound can reduce pain and swelling associated with deeper muscle injuries like piriformis syndrome as well as those closer to the skin’s surface like ACL injuries.
Rotator Cuff Tears: Ultrasound therapy can be used as a pain management modality when treating tears. Additionally, the ability to reduce inflammation with the help of therapeutic ultrasound helps the tissue to heal.
Myofascial Pain: Studies have found that ultrasound therapy is beneficial in helping reduce pain, muscle spasms and increase range of motion when treating patients with myofascial pain.
Animal Tendon & Muscle Injuries: Veterinarians use ultrasound to reduce the pain associated most tendon and muscle injuries in addition to injuries or chronic conditions that result in a decrease in range of motion.
The Research Findings of Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound therapy is also a powerful modality to use with other physical therapy techniques. Several studies have found that combination units are superior in pain management, increasing range of motion and decreasing patient downtime.
A research study at the S.D.M College of Physiotherapy called Effects of Combination Therapy (TENS & Ultrasound) in the Treatment of Active Myofascial Trigger Points (http://medind.nic.in/jau/t08/i2/jaut08i2p95.pdf) found that ultrasound and Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) combination devices were effective in treating pain associated with trigger points.
Another study published in Rheumatology International called Effects of therapeutic ultrasound and electrical stimulation program on pain, trunk muscle strength, disability, walking performance, quality of life, and depression in patients with low back pain: a randomized-controlled trial (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19644691), found that ultrasound and e-stim combination devices were superior in treating pain, decreasing disability and supporting muscular strength.
Whatever your clinic needs are, ultrasound therapy is a necessity and the diversity in available devices makes it easy to find the equipment that meets your practice’s needs.
