Musculoskeletal Pain (Like Muscle Spasms) is the most typical condition treated by ultrasound machines. Treatment can extend the life of the tissue and boost its range of motion. Nerve damage or inflammation can also be treated since heated tissues will promote blood flow and healing.
Bursitis an inflammation of the sac between the bone and the tendon being filled with fluid, is another candidate for treatment with ultrasound. Herniated discs can also be treated, although there are special precautions regarding scanning directly over the spinal cord among patients with back problems or history of back surgery. Tendinitis can also be treated by heat.
Sprains — laceration and painful wrenching of joint ligaments — can be treated using ultrasound therapy. Patients with frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis can benefit as the treatment enhances range-of-motion. Shoulder pain and stiffness will therefore improve.
Arthritis can be treated effectively through thermotherapy. The specific conditions that can improve include osteoarthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and Reiter’s syndrome. Rotator cuff injury can also show improvement.
