Title: Power of two Combination Therapy: Ultrasound & TENS Therapy

Know the Power of Two Ultrasound TENS Therapy

Some pain and discomforts require more than one
treatment to cure completely and at such
situations, multiple solutions like medication
and surgeries can complicate things due to two
diverse treatments going on at the same time.
Well, there is one such solution that offers two
treatment in one device without any interference
or complications and that is Ultrasound TENS
Therapy. Combination Therapy in
Physiotherapy Treatment is of no use until and
unless the exact trigger point is figured out.
You wont get the result and relief by treating
any random spot on your body just because it is
paining there. To get rid of the pain
permanently it is important to locate the origin
of it for which the combination therapy machine
is considered the best.
Combination therapy involves the simultaneous
application of Therapeutic Ultrasound (US) with
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation
therapy (TENS) Unit for faster and better relief
from pain. Before getting to know its combined
power, lets understand the individual treatment
modalities a bit. Therapeutic Ultrasound (US)
Ultrasound therapy is a deep heating treatment
where the probe or the transducer of the
ultrasound machine when vibrates produce sound
waves which are transmitted deep into the skin.
These ultrasound waves further hit the underlying
tissues causing them to vibrate which then
produces heat that relieves the pain or stiffness
of that particular area. It is a very low-risk,
natural and non-invasive procedure whose heating
technique help to alleviate muscle pain, improve
blood flow and encourage the body to heal faster
and naturally. Ultrasound therapy machine is one
of the oldest and widely used treatment modality
that is known to treat acute to very chronic
pains and discomforts that include swelling,
inflammation, sports injuries, muscle cramps, any
condition of joints and ligaments. Issues
such as tendonitis, arthritis etc. TENS Therapy
Whereas Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve
Stimulation is a therapy that involves the use of
mild electric current to treat pains, aches or
discomforts. It is a non-invasive treatment
method where a battery-operated device generates
small electrical impulses which are transmitted
into the affected area of the skin via sticky
pads called electrodes attached to the skin. The
electrical impulses work on the pain signals and
block them from reaching the brain and the
spinal cord, thus reducing the pain and relaxing
the stiff muscles. TENS unit also stimulates the
production of endorphins, which are the bodys
natural painkillers, helping the body to heal
itself faster and in a better way. TENS machine
is known to treat a wide range of conditions
like arthritis, period pain, knee neck back
pain, pelvic pain caused by endometriosis,
sports injuries and a lot of others. How does
combination therapy unit work?
Combination therapy unit comprises of Ultrasound
and TENS therapy infused in a sleek and handy
device that can be carried easily around. It can
either be used as the ultrasound device or TENS
machine or the combination of both. When the
combination therapy unit comes in contact with
the skin of the area to be treated, its
Ultrasound waves generate the low voltage
electric impulses which block the pain signals
from reaching to the spinal cord and brain and
thus relieve pain and help relax the tightened
muscles. While TENS units stimulates the
production of endorphins which are the bodys
natural painkillers, thereby encouraging our
body to heal on its own. The unit comes with
adjustable settings which allows you to set the
time period and intensity levels of the
combination therapy as required as well as the
easy switch functionality between the two
treatment modalities. Advantages of combination
therapy The combination of Ultrasound with TENS
machine appears to give rise to excellent
treatment effects than individual results
because, with the combination of two effective
treatment modalities, greater productive
treatment depth can be achieved which aids in
faster healing of the affected area. The
combination therapy can work its magic if you
have any of the following complain muscle
spasms, strains or cramps joint pain
postoperative pain and discomfort
bursitis piriformis syndrome tissue
damage arthritis or any similar condition
neuropathy inflammation ailments
diabetes regular headaches etc. Contradictions
of Combination Therapy
Just as TENS units and Ultrasound therapy
individually have some limitations to the areas
where it can be applied. Same goes with the
combination therapy. It is not advised to use
the combination unit on any pregnant lady, open
wounds patients with a pacemaker, electric device
or metal implants fractured bone patients having
any allergy or dermatological lesions areas
around the eyes, breasts, or sexual organs
Conclusion The combination of TENS and ultrasound
therapy has proved its effectiveness since the
time being and is said to have cured numerous
chronic and lifelong pains and discomforts. Its
ability to smartly detect the trigger points of
pain and providing prompt but permanent relief
makes it a must-have treatment method which
everyone should own at home and SONICTENS is the
best-ever option for that.
