Ultrasound Therapy - Treat Your Pain
Ultrasound therapy uses ultrasonic waves treat injuries. It works by exciting the tissue with the energy waves. The increased blood circulation from this therapy assists in the healing process of the injury.
In hospitals and therapy clinics these are used by physical therapists in a variety of rehab and injury settings. People can purchase their own ultrasound machine for use at home. The home units however are less powerful for safety reasons. A professional therapist knows the proper exposure for treating injuries without burning the tissue.
When using an ultrasound machine the head of the transponder should be moved about, so not to expose any one spot of tissue.
Before using the machine a gel is applied to the area that will be treated. The gel acts as a massage lubricant. But more importantly the gel is engineered to efficiently and safely transmit the energy waves through the skin to the tissue.
