The efficacy of phonophoresis
on electrophysiological studies of the patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.
Betamethasone injection, splint and exercise were applied to the first group (20 hands) and betamethasone phonophoresis, splint and exercise were applied to the second (20 hands) group.
Conclusion: At the end of the 3rd month, betamethasone injection and betamethasone phonophoresis combined with splinting and exercise treatment were equally effective in the management of CTS.
Phonophoresis requires the use of an ultrasonic coupling medium, which facilitates an efficient transfer of energy between the transducer and the skin surface.
Phonophoresis is a great tool to facilitate the absorption of oils, fat soluble vitamins, liposome products, emulsions and water soluble agents.
Infusion devices that don't use phonophoresis are incapable of dermal penetration, Shaya said, while Suffusion accomplishes what dermal infusion was meant to do: achieve topical penetration at the cellular level to stimulate collagen growth.
The Parisian Peel Suffusion System consists of: -- Elite Ultrasound -- An FDA-cleared, dual-frequency phonophoresis device that facilitates the penetration of the proprietary topical solution.
37] observed in their study that at the three-month follow-up, betamethasone injections and betamethasone phonophoresis combined with splinting and exercise were equally effective in the management of CTS.
