Combining ultrasound and electrical stimulation for pain relief in Bangkok

Hi, this is Kik from J-CLINIC Thonglor branch in Bangkok.

Today, I’m going to introduce you to our ultrasound and high-voltage therapy.

As an effective way to relieve pain, it’s popular among people suffering pain from injuries and chronic back pain.

 

What is “ultrasound/high-voltage therapy”?

 

Ultrasound/high-voltage therapy is a combination therapy that uses (1) high-voltage electricity to loosen up superficial muscle tension and (2) ultrasound to relax the deeper muscles that can’t be reached by hand.

 

Many of the world’s top athletes use this type of electrotherapy after their daily practice, as part of their conditioning program.

 

What results can you expect?

 

Ultrasound/high-voltage therapy accelerates cell repair. It speeds up the healing of injuries and helps to relieve pain.

 

▼ Benefits of ultrasound/high voltage therapy

 

What symptoms can be treated?

 

Ultrasound/high-voltage therapy is effective for treating sprained backs, chronic shoulder stiffness, frozen shoulders, sciatica, tendonitis, sprains, and pulled muscle(torn muscle), as well as for rehabilitation after surgery.

 

It’s also suitable for treating Osgood disease, shin splints, and various sports injuries common among both children and adults.

 

What are the key features of ultrasound/high-voltage therapy?

 

The combination therapy can treat deep muscles that can’t be reached by hand.

 

 

It’s also more efficient because it can apply two kinds of stimuli to the problem spots.

 

How is it combined with manual therapy?

 

Using high-performance treatment alone is good, but combining it with manual therapy can make the treatment even more effective.

 

Professional development: To make sure you get the best treatment, we pay attention to continually improving our therapists’ technique.

 

Motion & manipulation therapy combines manual techniques with electrotherapy and uses movement to loosen up joints with a reduced range of motion. Trigger points can be treated more quickly with this method.
