Ultrasound therapy: Ultrasound therapy is a medical spa procedure that uses ultrasound to treat and cure various musculoskeletal and soft tissue conditions. This non-invasive and painless therapy is based on the application of high-frequency ultrasound waves to the affected area to achieve beneficial therapeutic effects.
During the ultrasound therapy session, a special device called a transducer emits ultrasound to the treated area. This ultrasound penetrates the tissues, generating mechanical vibrations at the cellular level. This process activates microcirculation, stimulates cell metabolism and promotes healing and regeneration processes.
Ultrasound therapy has several important therapeutic effects. These include:
- Pain reduction: ultrasound helps calm nerves and reduce inflammation, thus relieving pain sensation.
- Muscle relaxation: ultrasound penetrates the muscles and tissues, stimulating blood circulation and oxygenation, leading to muscle relaxation and reduced tension.
- Accelerated healing: ultrasound stimulates the production of collagen, a protein essential for tissue regeneration, so the healing process of injuries and wounds is accelerated.
- Reduced inflammation: ultrasound helps to reduce inflammation and oedema, aiding the recovery process.
Ultrasound therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions such as sports injuries, sprains, tendonitis, bursitis, muscle contractures, fibrosis, scarring or other musculoskeletal conditions. It is important that it is carried out by specialised medical staff, who establish the correct parameters for each patient and ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
It is recommended that you talk to your doctor or balneologist to find out if ultrasound therapy is right for your situation and to get a personalised treatment at our rehabilitation centre.
