THE PAIN

what is it used for
What is it used for?
  • As a modality used in the treatment of various injuries and diseases
  • Alternative “Liposculpture”
    • TecnoLaser Cryosound

(Medisport-slovenija, 2006)

cryoultrasound indications
Cryoultrasound: Indications
  • Muscular
    • Contusions
    • 1st & 2nd degree injuries
    • Ossifying myosytis
  • Tendinous
    • Peritendinitis
    • Tendinosis
    • Tenosynovitis (De Quervain disease)
    • Insertional tendonopathy (epicondilytis, ischial-cruralis syndrome, rectus adductor syndrome)
    • Fascia (plantar fasciitis)
  • Bursitis (baker’s cysts, sub-acromial bursitis)
  • Ligamentous (sprains with capsular-ligamentous injuries)
  • Neural (Morton’s Metetarsalgia, carpal tunnel, anterior and posterior tarsal tunnel, dupuytren’s disease, Guyon’s Tunnel syndrome)
  • Articulatory (gonarthrosis, lumbalarthrosis, coxarthrosis, rizoarthrosis)

(Medisport-slovenija, 2006)

cryoultrasound effects
Cryoultrasound Effects
  • Three types of effects of Cryoultrasound:
    • Mechanical
    • Thermal
    • Biological
thermal effects
Thermal Effects
  • Superficial or “dermal” effect
    • Redding is visible after the “cold-ultrasound” treatment
  • Because the skin and muscles usually have a common artery, the increase in dermal circulation from the “cold-ultrasound” causes a circulatory decrease in the muscles.
  • Can be used immediately after trauma:
      • The tip placed on the injury causes an immediate vasoconstriction, followed by superficial vasodialation and deep musculature vasoconstriction

(Medisport-slovenija, 2006)

mechanical effects
Mechanical Effects
  • The cells of the muscle and connective tissue are stressed by mechanical means
    • produce more collagen and proteoglycans

Biological Effects

  • The different temperatures of the skin and muscles create a better circulatory effect and an increase in metabolism.

(Medisport-slovenija, 2006)

cryoultrasound features
Cryoultrasound features
  • Input: 220 volts – 50 Hz
  • Power: 650 Watts
  • Maximum power of Ultrasound: 3 watts/cm2
  • Ultrasound frequency: 1 MHz +/- 5%
  • Output: continuous or impulse (50 Hz or 100 Hz)
  • Time: 0-30 minutes
  • Transducer head: pizoelectric ceramic
  • Cryotherapy: regulated to -5 degrees Celsius

(Medisport-slovenija, 2006)

why cryoultrasound
“Why Cryoultrasound?”
  • Combines the effects of cryotherapy and ultrasound, while eliminating the contraindications for ultrasound with acute injuries.
  • Aids in the healing process
  • Breaks up pain-spasm-inactivity cycle = speeds recovery
  • Pain relief
  • Research!
    • Cryoultrasound therapy and tendonitis in athletes
    • “It can be asserted that cryoultrasound is a useful instrument for the physician working in the sports field.”
