Ultrasound

During the procedure mechanical vibrations of 800 – 24 000 kHz frequency are used. Ultrasounds impact tissues mechanically (so called “micromassage”) due to changes of pressure caused by acoustic wave course. Important component of their action is their impact on tissues biochemistry, what leads to their better oxygenation. Phenomena appearing in human tissues are subjected to ultrasound which are different depending on the place of use.
