One of the most effective physiotherapy is phonophoresis, which involves the simultaneous action of ultrasound on tissues of the body (mechanical action) and drug substance (chemical effect).The use of procedures
Ultrasound penetrates the tissue being transformed into thermal energy, so used in parallel with it a substance (lidasa, karipain, hydrocortisone ointment, etc.) Are better absorbed, and the duration is increased.
The advantages of ultrasonic phonophoresis include:
- tissue oxygenation, thus connecting the fibers become more elastic (lifting effect);
- activation of metabolic processes, creating the effect of lymphatic drainage;
- prolonged exposure to the therapeutic drug;
- anti-inflammatory effect;
- tissue regeneration and removing puffiness.
The procedure is prescribed as a method of combat:
- cellulite ;

- Karipain well proved itself in the fight against keloids. The procedure allows to relieve pain and inflammation with radiculitis, osteochondrosis, intervertebral hernia, arthrosis. Phonophoresis with karipainom improves the conductivity of nerve fibers, blood circulation in the tissues.
- Lidaza has property cleave collagen fibers which form the scar tissue. Because the procedure phonophoresis with Lydasum shows after surgery as a way to deal with scars, as well as Dupuytren's contracture, rheumatoid arthritis.
- Hyaluronic acid is recognized beauticians effective means of rejuvenation. To combat skin withering use injections, however, solve the problem of delivering the drug to the deep layers of the skin can be less painful way. So phonophoresis with hyaluronic acid provides a micro-massage and lymph drainage effect, the skin is tightened by feeding oxygen and stimulate the nerve endings.
As with any physical therapy procedure, phonophoresis has contraindications, including:
- skin diseases;
- endocrine dysfunction in severe;
- facial nerve paralysis;
- Stage 3 hypertension;
- aggravation of internal diseases and diseases of an inflammatory nature;
- the second half of pregnancy.
Many are interested in the possibility of fonoforeza at home - it's really real, because a portable ultrasound device type is in the free market. However, to carry out the procedure without risk to health can only be a qualified physiotherapist.
