The sound head is moved by the physiotherapist over an area (maximum twice the size of the sound head) for at least 5-7min. The physiotherapist uses a gel on the skin to enhance the contact and sound wave transmission into the skin. The area (ankle, knee, hand, shoulder) should be exercised immediately after the treatment for the best results.
US is only part of the treatment session; exercises should be provided to ensure the treatment range of movement gains are maintained. The physiotherapist will guide your treatment dosage and exercise prescription.
