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 Phonophoresis?


peppermint

Phonophoresis is the use of ultrasound to enhance the delivery of topically applied drugs. Effectively, medicines contained within or under the ultrasound gel are pushed by the sound waves of the ultrasound and driven deep below the skin. Phonophoretically administered medications can penetrate the body to a much deeper level than those massaged by hand over the surface of the skin.

Only some medications can be delivered phonophoretically. The process is dependant on many, many factors. For example, the type of drug and molecule size are critical. The drug molecule has to be just the right size to be picked up by the ultrasound waves and the right size to pass through the body tissue. As well, the medicinal molecule can't react with the ultrasound gel. It must also be able to survive the thermal and vibrational effects of the ultrasound. The delivery of medications via ultrasound is truly a science unto its own.

The duration of the treatment and the need to specifically adhere to a specific dose size is also a large consideration. Obviously, the longer ultrasound is used over a topical phonophoretic drug, the more the medication is delivered and the deeper it goes. Drugs that require precise dosing, like insulin for example, cannot be controlled accurately enough to be delivered via Phonophoresis. Many natural analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs though are excellent candidates for phonophoretic application.

One of the greatest benefits to delivering medications via phonophoresis is that the medication can be delivered locally to a desired area. Oral pain killers and anti-inflamatory drugs are introduced to the entire body in equal amounts. Even if you only need pain relief in your tennis elbow or an anti-inflammatory in your swollen bursa, with oral medications you end up drugging your entire body - your brain, your heart, your lungs even if they might not need the drug. With phonophoresis, the part of the body that receives the medication is the part of your body that needs it.

Where is Phonophoresis Typically Used?
