Evaluating THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND Machines
A home ultrasound machine is capable of several therapeutic actions depending on the wavelength generated by the instrument. A home ultrasound machine’s waves penetrate deeply into the body tissues and increase the healing of injuries to the tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.
Therapeutic ultrasound has two types of benefit:
- Thermal effects involve energy being absorbed from the ultrasonic waves and heating the tissue. If the tissue is heated to 40 to 45 °C (104 to 113 °F), it can enter a state of hyperaemia (increased blood flow), which speeds healing and reduces chronic inflammation.
- Added effects result from the vibration of the tissue causing microscopic air bubbles to form, which transmit the vibrations in a way that directly stimulates cell membranes. This physical stimulation appears to enhance cell-repair effects of the inflammatory response.
So, an increase in temperature over baseline muscle temperature of 36° C (100° F) to 37°C (101° F) accelerates the metabolic rate in tissue. Also, the depth at which your specific tissue, bone, or muscle injury or other ailment is located determines which frequency you should use, since each frequency of ultrasound waves penetrate to a different depth. A low frequency ultrasound, such as 1Mhz, is ideal for treating most chronic pain conditions.
Before purchasing a therapeutic ultrasound machine, it is important to do a bit of research on the technical specifications and bundled accessories that accompany the device, in order to choose a high quality, effective unit.
Are you looking for a new chronic pain management tool? Have you recently been injured or hurt? If so, then a therapeutic ultrasound machine could be very useful to you.
When new cell growth is needed at a rapid rate, such as at the site of an injury or source of pain, ultrasound waves can accomplish this task. A home ultrasound machine is able to generate microscopic bubbles in tissues that can stimulate cell membranes into action. This reduces inflammation and accelerates the healing process.

Today, with the miniaturization of ultrasound equipment, wearable ultrasound devices and hand-held home ultrasound machines allow you to administer ultrasound therapy at home on a regular basis. There are several types of home therapeutic ultrasound machines available to research and it is up to you to evaluate what type of device is right for you. You can also email or call our team of ultrasound therapy specialists at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-888-772-4047, respectively, to discuss all your ultrasound therapy options.
In sports rehabilitation, ultrasound is used on a daily basis because of the urgent need for healing athlete’s injuries in a hurry. This is one reasons athletes seem to heal so much faster than the rest of us. Sports therapists have been using therapeutic ultrasound machines to serve their athletes for a long time. The problem is that most people cannot get in to a physical therapist or chiropractor’s office every day for ultrasound treatments. This is why the ability to administer ultrasound treatments in the comfort of your own home, when it is most convenient for you with an ultrasound therapy machine can be so beneficial for managing pain and healing injuries.
Next time you have an injury or suffer from pain, make sure your doctor knows that you want to try ultrasound therapy. Tell them you want to look at therapeutic ultrasound machines that will allow you to treat at home, ease pain and quicken your recovery. Because home ultrasound is such a new technology, it is not an option that doctors will often present to patients. So be proactive and mention it to your doctor so you can discuss whether ultrasound is right for you. After all, you deserve to heal just as fast as your favorite athlete!
Ultrasound Machine Accessories
When evaluating therapeutic ultrasound machines, look at what kind of accessories they come with. Is the device enclosed in a hard carrying case for protection and portability? Does the home ultrasound machine include a bottle of ultrasound gel? What kind of warranty does it come with? Is there a dedicated support line you can call with questions or concerns?
Every home ultrasound machine offered through EZUltrasound.com has all of these attributes plus are FDA approved and backed with a 60 day, 100% money-back guarantee.
