Acupuncture/Ultrasound

Acupuncture

When needles are inserted into specific points, so-called acupuncture points, impulses are transmitted via thin nerves from the treated area to the spinal cord and beyond to the brain. In response to stimulation, the central nervous system begins to increase the production of different substances, such as endorphins, the body’s own morphine, which, among other things, helps reduce pain. In addition, the blood circulation increases in the tissue where the needles are located. In acupuncture with electricity, an Electroakupuncture device is connected which sends different kinds of electrical impulses.

How does the Ultrasound

The ultrasound works in two ways. First, the cell membrane opens so that the immune system gets easier to work. In part, the ultrasound provides shower effects on the inflammation and capillary oxygenated blood is delivered to the treatment site. High-intensity ultrasound also produces a thermal effect that increases blood vessel formation in the area. The resulting improvement in blood circulation can now more easily provide the area of ​​injury with the immune system components for faster healing. In order to get the best possible effect, a pulsating ultrasound is often used where the pulse is adjusted for the damage being treated. Ultrasound is also analgesic treatment.
