How to Choose the Right Ultrasound Gel?

How to Choose the Right Ultrasound Gel?

ultrasound gel

Any ultrasonic machine procedure includes the standard device and the gel that completes the therapy. Indeed the device can’t function without the gel. The gel is the catalyst that develops the bond between the probe and the skin. Once the connection is created, it further smoothens up the treatment. The basic function of the ultrasound device is to transmit waves in to the tissues and through that to the affected area, so to avoid the friction here and damage to the skin, gel is highly necessary or rather compulsory. It is a coupling agent that creates an aqueous interface for the device to perform better. Many a times, people end up hurting themselves due to wrong gel being used. So here are some tips that can help you in selecting the right kind of gel.

1. Components
Ultrasound waves can’t travel through air effectively. Even if there are tiny gaps of air between the probe and the skin, the results would not be positive. Also the skin can get damaged. So the gel used should have necessary ingredients that can create the interface between the transducer and the skin that can reduce static.

2. Long lasting
The gel used can be sticky and messy. Its gooey consistency can be a bit problematic to handle. So make sure that the once you have come with an assurance of longevity as applying it again and again can disturb the treatment and reapplication can also irritate the skin. Besides, it is advisable to create a pile of the gel on the necessary skin area which then shall be rubbed through the machine all over the skin. Here if the gel fails to stay stable in the form of the pile or if it doesn’t spread well then avoid using it.

3. Soothing effect
At times, people complain about the burning or itching sensation on the skin due to the use of gel. This is a sign of discontinuing that gel. The ultrasound gel is meant to give you a soothing feeling and make the transmission of waves comfortable. It you are not feeling that way, it means that the gel is not conducive enough to make the transmission of waves smooth which in turn can damage your skin and can also give partial benefits in terms of pain relief.

4. Effective at various frequencies
If an ultrasound machine is purchased, it is an obvious fact that, the same would be used for different pain oriented areas. Depending upon the location of the pain and the intensity of the pain, frequency of the device is set and the same flexibility is expected from the gel. If the gel doesn’t provide this versatility of being active and effective at different frequency levels, it is better to not use it.

5. Natural ingredients

Last but very important, the gel you are using must be having natural ingredients which improve your skin and not harm to your body. The ultrasound gel should be hyper-ionic. Select your best natural gel with the advantage of bacteria resistant and natural ingredients.

Why is it Risky to Play Sports with an Injury!

Common-Sport-Injuries, leg injury

Sports is a wonderful way of being healthy and fit. However, it is a bit risky. Each and every sport has a risk of injury. Sprains, strains, tennis elbow, runner’s knee, fracture are some of the common injuries related to sports. But the risk gets greater when one decides to play sports while being injured.

Warming up before exercise definitely reduces the chances of injuries and accidents but it can’t avoid mishaps that happen during the play. Sudden jerks, collisions, unexpected turns and forces often lead to damage. These actions are pretty common in sports and when they get clubbed with fatigue of game, exhaustion level rises, there is wrong use of technique, there is loss of stability and one ends up being injured.

Common threats
1. Inflammation

Inflammation

Inflammation is a natural healing process that our body conducts when it senses infection or injury. So if you have encountered any injury while playing sports, your body would immediately start the process of inflammation. But then if you don’t decide to rest and continue playing, the process of inflammation gets elongated. Your soft tissues lying near the cartilage experience trauma which triggers the release of inflammatory chemicals from the dead and damaged cells. If the body is not getting enough rest, then the damaged body part would experience pain, swelling, redness, heat and it may not be able to function.

2. Stress fracture

Sports-Injury-2-East-Melbourne-Podiatry, Stress fracture

Fracture as we all know is a condition when a bone is broken, however, there is another condition called stress fracture that is usually experienced by sports persons. When the muscles, joints or bones are no longer able to absorb the shock, they experience stress of activities. So basically, if a person continues to play sports despite having a minor injury, the injured muscles, bones or joints would start experiencing stress and there would be a point of time when they won’t be able to take the stress and end up being fractured. Overused injured bone hence breaks down. So it advisable to get immediate rest or first aid in case of any injury.

3. Torn ligaments

sports-injuries-football, Torn ligaments

Ligaments connect our bones to one another through a series of fibrous tissues that decide the intensity and flexibility of our bones and muscles. So while playing sports, if you stretch your muscles beyond their limit, land in a wrong position, make swift changes in body positions or twist awkwardly you might torn your ligaments. Common ligament injuries occur at the ankle and knees. The intensity of the pull can worsen if a person doesn’t rest after the injury. Usually extreme cases of ligament injuries require surgeries to repair.

Preventive measures
1. Warming up before playing sports creates warmth in the body, reducing the chances of injuries.
2. Rest after an injury. Be it a minor one or a major one.
3. Adopt right treatment measures for effective results. Physical therapies like hot water/ cold water treatment and Electrotherapy are highly recommended for sport injuries.
