Thanks to technological advances, it has been possible to develop alternative methods such as ultrasound therapy, which is capable of helping tissue regeneration through sound waves.
Ultrasound therapy is a widely used treatment in numerous health and wellness centers. It consists of applying ultrasound waves through a special device in those places where there is an injury to promote tissue regeneration and help the wound heal more quickly and effectively.
To carry out this therapy, a gel is first placed on the skin that acts as a conductive agent to transmit the sound wave from the equipment to the site of the injury. The wave produces a vibrating effect on the cells, which after being stimulated for enough time, produce heat. However, depending on the desired effect and the type of injury to be treated, ultrasound can be applied intermittently to generate tissue vibration without releasing heat.
The heat generated by the ultrasound produces a hyperemia effect, increasing the dilation of the blood vessels and the flow of blood in the area, in this way the metabolism is increased by favoring the hydration of the cells and the regenerative capacity of the cells is stimulated. tissues.
Similarly, it helps heal tissues that contain large amounts of collagen. Also, it has positive effects on the joints by reducing stiffness and contractions.
