Does Ultrasound Therapy Really Work?

Does Ultrasound Therapy Really Work?

In today’s vast world of medical treatments and advancements, ultrasound therapy as a form of physiotherapy sparks curiosity and skepticism, alike. As a therapy, ultrasound is always associated with the imaging technology used to peek inside a pregnant woman’s womb. However, ultrasound physiotherapy plays a different and diverse role altogether. A potential alleviator of pain, ultrasound therapy accelerates overall healing. A non-invasive alternative to multiple surgical procedures and medications, ultrasound therapy penetrates deep into the tissues to provide instant chronic pain relief. 

But, the lingering question in the current status quo: Does ultrasound therapy really work?

In this blog, we will explore how ultrasound therapy works as a physiotherapy modality, shedding light on its importance for fighting various chronic/acute pain conditions. Further down the end of the blog, we will also introduce you to a portable ultrasound physiotherapy device for at-home and in-clinic use.

Does ultrasound therapy really work

How does Ultrasound Therapy Work?

There lies widespread skepticism regarding the effectiveness of ultrasound therapy due to the non-invasive nature of the treatment. Many wonder: How does a seemingly large device, gliding over the affected area with the help of a gel deliver results without any sensation? 

However, the reality behind the treatment mechanism of therapeutic ultrasound is unique and different from other pain management mechanisms. 

Ultrasound therapy involves the use of high-frequency sound waves to penetrate deep into the tissues. Unlike diagnostic ultrasound, therapeutic ultrasound for pain management works on a different mechanism. Therapeutic ultrasound utilizes the heat generated by the vibrations of the sound waves to promote overall healing and alleviate pain. 

The principle lies in the ability of the ultrasound waves to stimulate the tissues beneath the skin’s surface, increasing the blood flow to the affected area. As a result, the increased blood flow causes an increase in oxygen levels, essential for healing the damaged tissue.

What conditions can Ultrasound therapy treat? 

There are several ailing conditions that ultrasound therapy can cure. The list can go endless, but in this blog, we will name the most common pain conditions treated by an ultrasound pain relief mechanism. 

  • Chronic Muscle Pain

Ultrasound for muscle pain can help relax muscles, increase blood flow, and reduce inflammation. Reduced inflammation can alleviate deep muscle pain caused by strains, muscle overuse, or tension. 

  • Joint Pain

Ultrasound therapy can be beneficial for managing pain in the joint areas, including the knee, shoulders, hips, and wrists. It is specifically said that ultrasound knee treatment is very helpful for treating knee joint problems like arthritis and osteoarthritis. 

  • Tendonitis

Conditions like Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, or rotator cuff tendonitis involve heavy inflammation of the tendons. Therefore, ultrasonic massage therapy not only reduces inflammation but also heals the affected tendons. 

  • Bursitis

Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursae, small sacs filled with fluid cushioning and lubricating joints. Ultrasound therapy helps in reducing inflammation and as a result, the pain associated with bursitis gets reduced.

  • Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common foot condition that involves the inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. This condition generally leads to immense heel pain, especially while walking or standing. Ultrasound therapy penetrates the affected tissues and promotes blood flow to reduce inflammation. 

  • Trapezitis

Trapezitis refers to inflammation of the trapezius muscle, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion in the neck and upper back region. Ultrasound therapy promotes blood circulation, reduces inflammation, and relaxes muscle tension. 

While ultrasound therapy stands as an effective method for alleviating specific pains, it also showcases a certain complexity. Traditionally only available in clinical settings, ultrasound therapy has now decided to enter the comfort of our homes. Are you wondering how? 

Let us break it down for you. 

US111: Ultrasound Therapy is Home! 

US111: Ultrasound Therapy is Home! 

One of the best-known innovations in medical science, US111 is a therapeutic ultrasound therapy device that is non-invasive. Completely portable in nature, US111 allows you to get instant relief from any kind of chronic muscle, joint, or nerve pain and is specially designed for at-home and in-clinic use.

In a nutshell…

Ultrasound therapy’s effectiveness may vary due to several factors including the condition being treated for, patient characteristics, and treatment parameters; it is highly effective in reducing pain and inflammation. With the ongoing advancements in technology and increased accessibility, ultrasound therapy has already entered the portability charts. Furthermore, it will also continue to evolve as a valuable tool in the management of pain and rehabilitation, reaching newer heights for ease of access.

Women on the Move: Portable Physiotherapy Devices

International Women’s Day is just around the corner and households worldwide are engaging in discussions surrounding women’s empowerment. Yet, in between these conversations, a pertinent question remains, are women truly empowered? In today’s fast-paced world, women are nowhere behind men. They are constantly on the move, giving a tough leg to men in every spectrum, juggling multiple responsibilities and commitments. Whether it involves balancing a career or following personal pursuits, the expectations of multitasking from women can be challenging. 

Amidst the hustle and bustle of day-to-day demands, a vehement problem often knocks on women’s doors, called pain. Now, you must be wondering about the technicalities of the word pain. What kind of pain? Well, pain can be any and every pain, starting from back and neck pain to menstrual pain. 

Thankfully, advanced solutions and pain management mechanisms have paved the path for innovative solutions, empowering women to take charge of their physical and overall well-being. 

One imminent solution to deal with on-the-go pain problems is through the usage of portable physiotherapy devices. 

In this blog, we will particularly put our focus on two diverse sets of pains that women experience. Firstly, pain arising out of menstrual cramps, popularly known as period pain, and how to tackle it on the go. Following this, we will talk about other types of conventional day-to-day pains; including neck pain, back pain, lower back pain, etc., and provide a portable option to cure it.

Menstrual Cramps: A Forever Bad News 

Being a woman and not going through the harrowing experience of tackling menstrual cramps at least once in your life is nearly impossible. Period Pain, scientifically called dysmenorrhea, is a distressing experience that most women face in those debilitating times of the month. There is much more to a woman’s life rather than dealing with constant cramping sensations and accompaniments like headaches, fatigue, and mood swings. 

Popular belief says that menstrual pain usually occurs due to the release of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that trigger uterine contractions to shed the uterine lining during menstruation. These contractions give out immense pain and make women shout screams of agony during their four- to seven-day period cycle. More than 80% of women in today’s world deal with period pain and out of this percentage, 5-10% of women experience such severe period pain that their lifestyle patterns get completely disrupted.

Since times unknown women have kept shut and accepted this pain to be their natural partners during period cycles. However, times have changed and so have women. This woman’s day, let’s challenge the jaws of period pain and take an active step towards period pain relief. But, the question arises, which weapon shall women use to defeat period pain? 

MOI: Your Weapon to Defeat Period Pain 

Enough of periods coming in every month and exploiting your body right, left, and center. The ground is set for you to take charge of your own body and prioritize yourself through the self-care sword.

Day-to-day Pain Troubling Women 

Pain, including neck pain, back pain, and lower back pain have recently become everyday partners for women. With women juggling between personal and professional status quo(s), acute and chronic pain don’t seem to live their bodies readily. Studies show that more than 80% of women in India complain about experiencing Chronic Lower Back Pain. They also go through a tough time managing back and neck pain. 

We live in a society where women are expected to do all, serve personal expectations, and master professional affiliations. However, what society often tends to overlook is the burden that such pre-assumptions put women into. Thus, pain in women’s bodies often arises from a sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, overburdening of household chores, or additional stress accounting due to several factors.

Therefore, this women’s day, let’s shed this expectation and work towards achieving the classic pain relief that every woman deserves. 

TENS 1.0- Every Woman’s Portable Pain Solution

Explore the TENS Therapy: Device Types and How It Works

Pain is an intricate and universal human experience, often signaling that something is amiss in our bodies. It can range from mild discomfort to debilitating agony, impacting our physical and emotional well-being. Fortunately, there are various methods to alleviate pain, and one of the promising solutions is Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS).

TENS Therapy Machine

TENS therapy utilizes a small, portable device that delivers low-level electrical currents to specific areas of the body. These electrical impulses work to disrupt and modulate pain signals, providing relief without the need for medication. 

How TENS Therapy Work

TENS therapy, or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, is a method of pain management that relies on electrical currents to alleviate discomfort. Understanding how TENS therapy works involves grasping its fundamental principles:

Electrode Placement: TENS therapy begins with the placement of adhesive electrodes on the skin’s surface. These electrodes are strategically positioned near or directly over the painful area or along the path of the affected nerves.

Electrical Pulses: Once the electrodes are in place, the TENS unit is activated. The device generates controlled electrical pulses. These pulses are typically low voltage and low frequency, designed to be safe and comfortable for the user.

Pain Signal Disruption: The stimulation of sensory nerves has a dual effect. Firstly, it can interfere with the transmission of pain signals to the brain. The electrical pulses essentially “distract” the nerves, making it more challenging for them to transmit pain messages.

Endorphin Release: Secondly, TENS therapy can trigger the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals. Endorphins help to reduce pain perception and create a sense of well-being and relaxation.

Gate Control Theory: The Gate Control Theory of pain suggests that the electrical stimulation from the TENS unit closes the “pain gate” in the spinal cord. In essence, it blocks or modulates the pain signals before they reach the brain. This theory explains how TENS can reduce the perception of pain.

Safety Considerations: TENS therapy is generally considered safe when used correctly. However, it is essential to follow guidelines, including not placing electrodes over broken or irritated skin and not using the device near the eyes or on the head.

What makes TENS an Excellent Choice to Eliminate Pain?

Non-Invasive: TENS therapy is entirely non-invasive. It involves attaching adhesive electrodes to the skin, eliminating the need for injections or surgeries. This makes it a safer and less intimidating option for pain relief.

Drug-Free: Unlike many pain management approaches that rely on medication, TENS is drug-free. It doesn’t introduce any substances into your body, reducing the risk of side effects and dependency.

Customizable: TENS units are highly customizable, allowing users to adjust the intensity, frequency, and duration of the electrical pulses. This customization ensures that the therapy is tailored to an individual’s specific pain and comfort levels.

Targeted Relief: TENS therapy enables precise targeting of painful areas. Whether it’s muscle soreness, joint pain, or nerve-related discomfort, you can apply the electrodes directly to the source of the pain.

Immediate Relief: TENS therapy often provides immediate relief. As soon as the device is activated, users can experience a reduction in pain sensation, making it an excellent option for acute pain management.

Best Muscle Stimulator Machines in India

Best Muscle Stimulator Machines in India

What is Muscle Stimulator Machine?

Best Muscle Stimulator machines also go by the name of EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulator), it is basically an electronic machine that has the ability to contract your muscles via an electrical current passed through muscles.

These electric currents may assist in pain relief but do not entirely relieve the pain. So this process acts as an alternative for healing muscle pain.

You can get pain relief, muscle reeducation, decreasing Inflammation and swelling, facilitation of tissue healing, and increasing local blood flow by electrical muscle stimulator machine.

A stimulator machine works when you attach the stick-on pieces of the equipment to the skin and use the control unit to transmit currents to the targeted muscle groups. Other devices like sensory knobs and the timer are located at the control unit to produce the electric current.

There are tools like lead wires and neurostimulator electrodes that are attached to the skin to transmit the current. The muscle stimulation machine may cause some unique sensations while turned on and applied to an affected area.

ultrasonic wave

When applied to the affected areas you might feel your muscle twitching, or feel the sensations of pins and needles or a dull tingling. These sensations only last during the process of treatment but there can be times where patients might feel them up to 30 minutes even after the therapy sessions.

Why is it important?

When people are sick, in pain, or injured, they usually seek relief in possibly the easiest and quickest ways. Technology is constantly working towards making it possible for people to relieve and cure their chronic or acute pains and lead a healthier lifestyle.

Since people are often too sick or in severe pain to move thus they prefer rehabilitation programs at the comfort of their home. Physiotherapists help and keep people healthy by providing these treatments under proper guidance. The stimulator machines usually come in three forms.

IFT – Interferential Therapy

IFT physiotherapy produces deeper stimulation which is extremely effective for chronic pain relief. It also escalates the self-healing process in the body and improves blood flow as well.

EMS – Electrical Muscle Stimulation

EMS is known to generate electrical pulses that help stimulate the motor neurons of the body. This process strengthens the weak or inactive muscles and restores muscle tone.

TENS – Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation

The release of endorphins in the mind directly works like pain killers for the body. TENS Machine helps stimulate the nerve fibers and releases endorphins to heal the pain.

At UltraCare Pro we provide you with a single unit for these multiple therapies called combo3 plus. UltraCare Pro provides this unique device that serves multiple therapies.
