How does ultrasound therapy work?

  • Generation of sound waves: ultrasound therapy uses a device that generates high-frequency sound waves, which are transmitted via a gel or special cream on the skin to the affected area.
  • Tissue penetration: these sound waves penetrate the soft tissues of the body and cause microvibrations that can have various effects on cellular processes and blood circulation.

Applications of ultrasound therapy:

  1. Pain relief and inflammation: ultrasound can help relieve pain associated with various conditions such as arthritis, sports injuries or other soft tissue injuries.
  2. Aiding rehabilitation: therapy is also used to speed up the recovery process after injuries or surgeries, and is thought to help improve blood circulation and stimulate rapid tissue repair.
  3. Improving muscle flexibility and functionality: ultrasound can help improve muscle and tendon flexibility, facilitating movement and functionality of the affected areas.

It is important to keep in mind:

  • Consultation with a specialist:
    It is always important to consult a doctor or physiotherapist before starting ultrasound therapy treatment to assess whether this type of therapy is right for you and how it should be administered.
  • Individual approach:
    Ultrasound treatment is usually individualized depending on the patient’s condition and specific needs.
