The center offers best in class electrotherapy facilities making use of the most advanced machines. Ultrasonic therapy has been an established form of treatment in :
- Muscle strains
- Degenerative arthritis
- Ligament and tendon injuries
The Ultrasonic therapy has been proposed to act by increasing local blood flow, washing out the inflammatory mediators of pain and providing an instantaneous relief without improving the basic patho-mechanics of the disease. Early symptom relief helps accelerate healing by being able to start strength training exercises. These make the patient relaively eased out from ongoing pain and increases compliance to exercises and decreases time to start Rehabilitation.
The technology makes use of a probe which generates ultrasound waves. These waves penetrate the skin and subcuteneous areas going deep down to the tendons, ligaments and soft tissues. There is evidence that by increasing local blood flow, it helps by decrease inflammation and pain. There is a range of frequency(cycles/sec) and energy distribution (mW/cm2) which needs to be decieded as per patient profile and requirement. Chronic pains and overuse syndromes take longer while to ease off with therapy. Acute sprains do much better in a shorter course of therapy.
