What is Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound therapy is a form of treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to treat painful conditions and to promote tissue healing. Ultrasound therapy may not be effective for all pain conditions, but it may be used to reduce pain if you have osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, sprains, or strains.
How does Ultrasound Therapy work?
Ultrasound Therapy uses pulses of sound waves to penetrate tissues or continuous sound waves to cause vibrations in the deep tissue molecules. These sound waves can reduce swelling and decrease pain. Usually, a small surface area is worked on anywhere from 5-10 minutes. It is important to make sure the transducer head does not remain in one place for too long, or else it can burn the tissues underneath. Gel, such as the Medline Ultrasound Transmission Gel is applied to your skin or the ultrasound machine transducer head to make sure the sound waves evenly penetrate the skin. It is normal to feel a mild pulsing during ultrasound therapy as well as warmth in the skin. You may however, feel nothing at all.
