In physical therapy involves using a round-headed probe that is in direct contact with the patients skin. Gel is used both on the probe and the patients skin to reduce friction and assist transmission of ultrasonic waves. These waves are generated by piezoelectric effect, crystals in the head of the probe vibrate in response to the electricity producing ultrasound. These absorb in the injured soft tissue from 2-5cm, with decrease of intensity as waves penetrate deeper.
Three primary benefits of ultrasound:
• Speeds up the healing process by increase blood flow to area treated.
• Decrease in pain from the reduction of swelling and oedema.
• Gentle massage of muscles, tendons and ligaments and scar tissue is softened and enhance cell-repair.
