Infratonic therapy is used frequently and effectively to relieve pain and to accelerate healing in orthopedic injuries involving fractures and torn tendons. The most physical of orthopedic injuries is the bone fracture and the aid provided by the Infratonic to fracture patients earns deep respect for this modality. Damage to cartilage is generally slow to heal due to lack of blood circulation but Infratonic therapy has been used frequently toward pain relief and mobility.
Infratonic therapy immediately reduces inflammation in the muscles and synovial tissue of joints as measured by infrared thermography. Further, over a period of weeks, Infratonic therapy shows decreasing levels of diagnostic enzymes AST (aspartate amino transferase) and CPK (creatine phosphokinase) in the blood and an increase in production of Hyaluronic acid, the viscous oil that lubricates joints. Hyaluronic acid also accelerates wound healing, strengthens muscles, reduces scar tissue formation and normalizes existing scar tissue, creates hard and soft structures within the myofascial tissues.
In clinical practice, the Infratonic 8 has proven to be highly effective in the aftermath of orthopedic injuries and surgeries.
