Ultrasound therapy, also referred to as therapeutic ultrasound, is a treatment used in physiotherapy to help reduce inflammation in an injured area, increase blood flow, reduce muscle and connective tissue stiffness, and help to break down scar tissue.
How does ultrasound therapy work?
A five-minute treatment of ultrasound in the affected area increases the temperature of the tissue being treated and increases blood flow, making the injured area more responsive to manual therapy. This increase in circulation helps with healing since all the properties that are vital to healing such as oxygen, specialized cells, proteins, and nutrients, are all located within the blood.
If the injury is still in the early stages of healing, longer intervals of ultrasound may be used. For best results, we have found that ultrasound works best as a supplementary technique to other treatments such as:
Ultrasound used in physiotherapy is different from the ultrasound used for other medical purposes. Medical or diagnostic ultrasound is used to generate images of the internal structure of the body. It uses a transducer to send and then pick up the high-frequency sound waves as they bounce off the area where the ultrasound is applied. The waves that bounce back change depending on the type of tissue they make contact with and these changes are interpreted by a computer which then forms an image. Ultrasound used in physiotherapy is therapeutic which uses a different frequency and does not have a sensor to pick up the waves after they’ve been sent into the body, so this type of ultrasound does not produce an image.
What injuries can ultrasound therapy help treat?
Ultrasound therapy can be effective in the early stages of treating an acute injury or chronic pain. Some injuries best treated by ultrasound therapy include:
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Joint pain and tightness
Rotator Cuff tear/tendonitis
After an injury, inflammation occurs. Inflammation is an important part of the initial healing process as it boosts the body’s immune response and promotes tissue regeneration. However, it can lead to excessive swelling, which restricts blood flow and causes the joints to stiffen. Also, healing cannot begin until the inflammatory phase has ended and therefore we want to remove the inflammation as soon as possible.
To reduce inflammation in these early stages, it is essential to use gentle and non-invasive treatments to help the injured area heal. Inappropriate manual treatment or aggressive techniques can be detrimental to your rehabilitation.
The ability to heat and massage musculoskeletal damage helps in many ways, including:
Improved tissue relaxation and local blood flow (which helps reduce swelling and chronic inflammation)
Therapeutic ultrasound also decreases pain and aids in the breakdown of scar tissue.
Ultrasound is a broad-ranging therapy that can treat many conditions.
One of the many benefits of ultrasound therapy is breaking up scar tissue caused by injuries or surgery. Scar tissue can cause pain and restrict joint movement. Ultrasound helps by using high-frequency sound waves to break the fibres of the scar tissue down into smaller fragments. Depending on the amount of scar tissue, several treatments may be required.
If you are experiencing chronic pain from a slow-healing injury or your injury is not responding to other treatments, ultrasound therapy may also be beneficial. Ultrasound generates heat deep into the tissues, increases circulation and metabolism. This helps to encourage tissue repair, loosens the muscles and increases oxygen and other important substances to promote tissue regeneration and healing.
The heat created by ultrasound can also help increase flexibility. Ultrasound warms the tissues of muscles, tendons, and ligaments and allows them to stretch more. This added stretch increases the range of motion of joints and results in more flexibility.
Ultasound wave Principle:
1.Mechanical function: the ultrasound have the [micro massage" to the tissue substance and tiny cell. It could soften tissue, enhance penetration, improve metabolism, promote blood circulation, stimulate nerve system and cell, relief pain.
2.Heating function: it forms heat during ultrasound therapy, so it is also called
as"ultrasound diathermy therapy". it is deep heating, that penetrate below the muscle.
Thus, ultrasound therapy is applied to chronic soft tissue pain, arthritis, rheumatism.
3.Physical therapy function: based on the mechanical and heating function,
it will trigger physical therapy.
