Ultrasound Helped My Fibromyalgia

I bought this product because I was familiar with the benefits of ultrasound from previous physical therapy sessions. My deductible on my insurance is much too high now to get the "professional" treatment available from a physical therapist, so I purchased this product to use at home. I have been very pleased with all aspects of my purchase.

First of all, the unit is sleek, light, well-made and durable. And the medicated lavender infusion gel is far better than any other plain conductive gel. There are easy-to-read instructions and customer service is just a phone call away. I had a question about treating more than one body area at a sitting and whether this would adversely affect the unit. I got to speak to a friendly and knowledgeable "real person" right away (which is not common these days with frustrating recordings that offer no service).

I considered this purchase as a long-term investment in my health, and that it was a bargain if it performed as stated. I have not been disappointed. I have fibromyalgia and myofascial pain, and a couple of old injuries from bumping around in life. Ultrasound increases blood flow and stimulates healing. This unit is well worth the money and does the job.

In my search for an ultrasound I investigated different companies. No matter who I spoke with at MendmeShop, they were informed, articulate, and I knew they would be there if I had a problem. I used it for my Fibromyalgia. I was concerned because the home ultrasounds are much less intense as far as what you get at the Chiropractor, but this worked great. The gel is expensive but I don't think I will be able to use the cheap stuff after the great relief I felt with the Ultrasound and Gel. The gel left me feeling soothed, and a cooling sensation. The relief and cooling sensation lasted a long time. So super happy with this product. I am considered a very bad case for Fibromyalgia, so this is a huge deal to have any relief. Thanks!

I must say I am very pleased with the results I have achieved so far with the MendMeShop ultrasound unit. I have received ultrasound in the past and it helped greatly. However, it was time consuming and rather inconvenient. I am glad I found your company and I am now able to use ultrasound from home. I have been using the device since June to treat knee osteoarthritis and a previous meniscus injury. Prior to purchasing the ultrasound, I suffered from rather significant pain on a regular basis. It was difficult to do every day activities such as grocery shopping and gardening. Now, after a few weeks of using ultrasound, I am able to do those activities plus I am even square dancing. I feel that your ultrasound unit is helping me regain a more normal and pain free life.

I purchased your ultrasound device and gel several months ago. I have used it as prescribed regularly with outstanding results. Several years ago, while playing football as a quarterback, I received a meniscus injury to my left knee. I have had physical therapy steroids, other drugs and natural medicine which helped for a time but the pain kept returning. I received a brochure through the internet. Purchased the device and used it regularly. During a x-ray review of my knee, I learned that the meniscus increased in thickness. Six months ago I was experiencing a bone on bone situation. The last x-ray showed the space between the bone increased to 3.25 mm, relieving the bone on bone and hence the pain I was experiencing. Thank you so much for letting me know of the device.

Please accept my warmest compliments on the courtesy and professionalism of Deb and Mallory. In the last few days, I have been researching portable home ultrasound devices and consequently spoke with a good number of representatives from a broad spectrum of competitors. I can attest that none of them were nearly as helpful and courteous as Deb and Mallory. These two ladies answered all my questions cheerfully and were a great help in providing all the information I needed. Consequently, I chose to make my purchase through your company. You can be justifiably proud to have such sparkling professionals as Deb and Mallory on your team. I look forward to telling others about my outstanding experience with your company, and wish you, and especially Deb and Mallory, every future success.

What is Therapeutic Ultrasound?

Therapeutic Ultrasound is a method of stimulating tissue beneath the skin's surface using sound waves. It is a very high frequency massage that can penetrate up to 4 inches below the surface of your skin.

Sound waves penetrate the body to help healing

The sound waves are very high frequency, typically between 800,000Hz and 2,000,000Hz. The sound can not be heard by humans or animals. Humans can only hear sounds up to about 20,000Hz. This very high frequency sound, like medicine, affects very small molecules and cells in the body and actually causes them to move.

How ultrasound energy is transferred into the body is a function of many factors. The frequency of the ultrasound waves is actually opposite to how deep they will penetrate the body. A 1MHz ultrasound will penetrate about 4" below the skin whereas a 2MHz ultrasound unit will only penetrate about 2". While a low frequency means deeper penetration, using a frequency too low will mean that the waves are too wide to properly move the molecules. For therapeutic applications, 1MHz is the optimal frequency for both effect and penetration.

Power Output

Power output is another significant factor. It is measured in watts per square centimeter. The higher the power, the more energy is transferred into the body. If too high a power output is used and an ultrasound unit is left sitting still on the body, it is possible to burn the tissue beneath the skin. While several professional ultrasound machines are capable of these high powers, your medical practitioner will typically use a low power setting below 1 watt / centimeter squared. More power is not necessarily better. Practitioners usually use higher power to speed up treatments. It is actually more effective to use a lower power setting for a longer period of time.

Research indicates that ultrasound is 50 to 80% more effective than superficial heat.

The power output rating is often broken down into two separate units, peak intensity and average intensity. Peak intensity can be thought of as how tall the waves are that are being sent into your body. The waves need to be large enough to affect the tissue and provide the desired massage effect. At the same time, your body tissue needs breaks between groups of waves to cool down. So, Ultrasound machines actually send the waves in groups giving your body a vibrate-rest-vibrate-rest effect. The average intensity is a measure of how much energy is transferred over a period vibrate-rest cycles.

Helping your migraine with therapeutic ultrasound

Ultrasound machines provide a Total Power Output rating. High power units are typically used with large applicator heads to do larger parts of the body. The important measurement part of ultrasound is the watts per square centimeter mentioned above, not the total unit power. Again, it is more effective to treat the affected area more frequently and for longer periods with lower power.

Why Ultrasound Gel?

When applied directly to the skin an ultrasound head cannot effectively transfer the sound waves into the body. To make it work properly, a conductive medium is required - ultrasound gel. The gel simply makes it possible for the sound waves to travel from the unit head into your body. Ultrasound without gel is ineffective and can damage the ultrasound machine.

What does it do?

The heating and massaging effects of Therapeutic Ultrasound have two primary benefits. First, it increases blood flow in the treated area which speeds the healing process. Second, it reduces swelling and edema which are the main sources of pain.

Ultrasound can also be used to administer therapeutic medicines into the body. In such a case there are 3 benefits to a treatment, the first two from the massaging effect of ultrasound discussed above, and the third from administering the medication. This is a process known as phonophoresis. Ultrasound with Phonophoresis is rapidly becoming more popular than Ultrasound Therapy alone.

clinic cost vs personal ultrasound unit

For most injuries and ailments, a cycle of ultrasound therapy usually consists of 5-10 minute treatments 2-3 times per day for the duration of the healing period. This surprises many people who have gone for single treatments in clinics only 2 or 3 times each week. This has everything to do with the cost and convenience for the customer. A proper course of therapeutic ultrasound treatments consists of 3 to 10 minute treatments 2 to 4 times per day.

What can be Treated With Ultrasound?

An incredibly wide variety of ailments are treated using ultrasound. Essentially, anywhere there is a desire to promote blood circulation and reduce swelling and edema, ultrasound will help.

Injuries to the tendons, ligaments, muscles and cartilage are treated primarily with ultrasound. Ultrasound helps to reduce swelling and edema which in turn greatly reduces the pain from the injury. The stimulated tissue and increased blood flow speed the healing process. Typically, these types of injuries are very slow to heal and because people continue to try to use the injured body part, the injury is repeatedly stressed. Regular applications of ultrasound over the duration of the healing period will significantly reduce pain and the time to heal.

Back Pain, Sciatic Pain

Most professional athletes use ultrasound as a preventative modality to protect against injury. Using ultrasound before and after very strenuous activities aids in the warm-up warm-down process. Athletes with chronic ailments from previous injuries will use ultrasound to promote circulation to the injured area and to reduce swelling and pain which may impact their performance. Because they use them daily, most professional athletes have purchased personal ultrasound units.

People who suffer from chronic ailments associated with swelling and pain also gain great benefit from ultrasound. Those who suffer from Arthritis, Bursitis, Carpal and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, and swollen disks use ultrasound to reduce the swelling and pain associated with their ailment. Ailments which are not chronic such as Bursitis, Pulled muscles, muscle spasms, or tendon or ligament injury can be treated with ultrasound and will typically speed the healing rate. For conditions such as arthritis, ultrasound cannot cure the disease but it can reduce the pain and swelling significantly which allows people to resume normal lives. When used for treating painful conditions such as these, ultrasound is typically applied using a medicated gel to gain the phonophoretic benefit as well.

As a therapeutic massage device, ultrasound is very effective at reducing muscle tension. People who suffer muscle tension headaches and migraines use ultrasound on the back of the neck. This is a very common procedure used by massage therapists and chiropractors for headache sufferers. People receiving treatments often describe the sensation as 'the machine seems to suck the tension and pain right out of my head through my neck'. In reality what is happening is the ultrasound is releasing the trigger points which are the source of the pain.

Massage therapists are increasingly offering ultrasound treatments in conjunction with regular massage as a pain free method of releasing trigger points and knots in all the muscles. Using ultrasound on the trigger points of injured muscles helps to relax the muscle from the trauma of the injury. When relaxed the muscle can heal from its injury much more quickly and more effectively with less scar tissue. While full body ultrasound treatments are not practical, ultrasound treatments on localized trouble areas are very effective.

Q & A - the FACTS!

Buy Mendmeshop Ultrasound

As word spreads about our ultrasound product, we discover that many people suffering with pain had doubts. Luckily, some tried our ultrasound therapy anyway, and now they are our biggest advertisers!

If you, a friend or a family member are suffering from a painful ligament injury, its time to get our MendMeShop ultrasound unit.

I'm skeptical about ultrasound - How do I know it works?

Don't listen to us - listen to the doctors, physiotherapists, massage therapists and chiropractors that are using ultrasound more and more frequently each day!

They know it speeds healing, reduces swelling, decreases pain, increases blood flow to the treated area (and thus increasing the effectiveness of medication in the bloodstream on the area), and has even prevented the need for surgery in some documented cases. 100% of our customers are strong believers in ultrasound. They KNOW it works, just like you will!

    INDEPENDENT Medical Test Results about Ultrasound Therapy:
  • Effects of ultrasound treatment in carpal tunnel syndrome Quote: "The use of splints, local corticosteroid injections and surgical decompression has limited effectiveness in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. Ultrasound therapy applied to the wrist may induce an anti-inflammatory effect that could provide relief of symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome."

What is the difference between a 1MHz and 5MHz ultrasound?

When considering ultrasound, the lower the frequency, the deeper the penetration. A 5MHz unit's sound-waves would not penetrate deeply enough to affect the ligaments, whereas a 1MHz unit will. Our Ultrasound is specifically designed for deep penetration into injured muscle, ligaments and tendons. It's power and frequency are chosen to give you the maximum benefit.

The lower the frequency - the deeper the treatment!

What are added benefits of using Mendmshop Ultrasound?

    At our online store:
  • We sell a unique medicated gel that when used properly, is VERY effective in reducing inflammation and soothing the treated area.
  • Buy Xyliss
  • Is UL approved (Underwriters Laboratories) and also CE approved for Europe.
  • Is both safe and effective! The unit has a timed safety shut off, preventing injury due to overuse. (please read and follow ALL safety instructions before using and use at all times with care and attention)
  • It is very portable - you can use it anywhere!
  • You would be lucky to get more than two or three ultrasound treatments weekly at your physiotherapist and you may have to wait for a month to get started! Take healing into your own hands.
