Re: Does Ultrasound help?
Posted by Dayna on 3/09/99
I had ultrasound a few times, it seemed to help but it was not consistent three times a week, more of an off and on when things got bad. The last time I had a bad flare-up I used my plain old massage wand for shoulders and etc, has a round flat head and several areas of bumps or lines along the edge for a different effect, is also speed adjustable. I just turned that on medium and laid my heel against it, swapped back and forth between this and ice, I do believe that it helped by increasing blood flow to the injured area.
My doctor charged minimally ($15) per 10 minute treatment, I say if you can afford it try it for a few times and see if you feel there is benefit. Keep us informed of your progress, we care.
