The home ultrasound machine is an innovative home remedy, from which treatment was once available only to hospitalized patients. This revolutionary home ultrasound machine works the same at home, as it does in the hospitals for therapeutic use. Significantly priced below the hospital ultrasound machines, these home ultrasound machines do not require the overhead cost incurred from hospitalization bipap machine.
The pain-relieving ultrasound devices work by pulsating ultrasound waves at differing wave lengths that flows out of a hand held wand. Apply the water-soluble gel to the afflicted skin area and use the wand to target the painful soft tissue. There are different power settings on the hand-held wand: low, medium, and high. There is a 30-minute automatic off switch that prevents tissue damage.
Therapeutic ultrasound machines help to alleviate pain, decrease inflammation, and allow for good blood flow to the area for faster healing. The common ailments that the home ultrasound machine treats include neuralgia, arthritis, sports injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, strains and sprains, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, tendonitis, upper and lower back pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, fibromyalgia, and tension headaches.
These therapeutic ultrasound devices do not emit any harmful x-rays, or any other harmful rays, that may be carcinogenic or detrimental to your body tissues. Ultrasound therapy devices do not hurt with treatment or cause bodily discomfort when applied correctly. The documentation that comes with the home ultrasound machine specifies its usage. A general rule of thumb is that you can treat each body area 1 – 3 times per day for up to 15 minutes each treatment. This can be accomplished daily or every other day. The large body parts like the thighs and legs can use the high power setting, and the smaller body parts like the elbows, knees, and hands should use the low to medium settings.
