How Does Therapeutic Ultrasound Work?
Generally, ultrasound is a mechanical wave generated by oscillations of a crystal placed in the ultrasound applicator. The oscillations are transferred from the applicator to the body surface and deeper into the tissue using a contact means, such as gel. The main effects include tissue heating and in-depth micro massage.
Unlike traditional 3MHz frequency ultrasound cavitation for the treatment of superficial tissues, Ultrawave uses 1 MHz frequency therapeutic ultrasound to treat deeper injuries.
Customer Questions & Answers
Therapeutic ultrasound is used to provide deep heating to soft tissue structures in the body. Deep heating tendons, muscles, or ligaments increases circulation to those tissues, which is thought to help the healing process. Increasing tissue temperature with ultrasound is also used to help decrease pain.
Inside ultrasound unit is a small crystal. When an electrical charge is applied to this crystal, it vibrates rapidly, creating piezoelectric waves. These waves are emitted from the ultrasound sound head as ultrasound waves.
The ultrasound wave then enters into your injured tissues during application of the modality. This increases blood flow and cavitation, leading to the theorized benefits of the treatment.
Ultrasound is performed with a machine that has an ultrasound transducer (sound head). A small amount of gel is applied to the particular body part; then your physical therapist slowly moves the sound head in a small circular direction on your body.
The therapist may change various settings of the ultrasound unit to control the depth of penetration of the ultrasound waves or change the intensity of the ultrasound. Different settings are used in various stages of healing.
While you are receiving an ultrasound treatment, you will most likely not feel anything happening, except perhaps a slight warming sensation or tingling around the area being treated. If the ultrasound sound head is left in place on your skin and not moved in a circular direction, you may experience pain. If this occurs, tell your physical therapist right away.
