Ultrasound

Physiotherapy devices with analgesic and anti-inflammatory action.

  • Physiotherapy devices with analgesic and anti-inflammatory action.
  • With thermal and mechanical properties.
  • Ultrasound waves are widely used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

Ultrasound application produces two primary results:

Thermal

Ultrasound waves heat up certain targeted areas to a high degree and in great depth. Tissues high in collagen, such as articular capsules, scar tissue, tendons and fascia, heat up to a greater degree.

We achieve:

  • Hyperemia
  • Reduction of muscle spasm.
  • Analgesia
  • Acceleration of ATP production, the cells' energy currency.
  • The cyclic AMP (cAMP) derived from ATP is a very important secondary messenger that takes part in a number of intracellular signal transduction pathways.
  • More energy = faster recovery.
    Mechanical results

Mechanical results

  • Separation of collagen fibers, increased stretching ability of connective tissue, shrunken articular capsule and tendons.
  • Reduction of adhesions and scar tissue.
  • Increased cell membrane permeability to ions.
  • Effect on protein synthesis and acceleration of wound healing.
  • "Gentle massage", reduction of edema.
    Anti-inflammatory action.

A technique applied alongside ultrasound waves to infuse molecules of chemical compounds for anti-inflammatory and analgesic action in the inflamed tissues.

  • Cervical spine syndrome.
  • Lower back pain, sciatica, intervertebral disc herniation.
  • Shoulder periarthritis, tendinopathy (tendinitis).
  • Muscle and tendon injuries, sprains.
  • Hip and knee osteoarthritis.
  • Fractures
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, muscle and tendon problems/dysfunctions.
