Ultrasound 

Ultrasound is electro therapy using the curative effects of electricity. The therapy, using various types of electricity (frequency, length and shape of the impulses), is applied to the problematic area, stimulating the nerves and the muscles, which helps to improve blood circulation in the area exposed to the electricity. Ultrasound is used for the treatment of deep and surface structures, significantly speeding up the chemical reaction in the tissues.

Effect

Ultra sound has analgesic and stimulating effects. It is used for relaxing muscle tension, as a pain reliever for acute and chronic problems, for strengthening weak muscle or to incite muscle contraction in the muscles with impaired innervations. The ultrasound effect is represented by the ability to destroy inflammation focusing on the deeper tissues.

Recommendation

A combination of ultrasound, rehabilitation, mobilisation and massage techniques provides a modern approach to treatment and rehabilitation and a high success rate in treating problems.
