Ultrasound May Be Used To Heal Bone Fractures
Fractures are among the most common injuries that someone might sustain, and recently, it was announced that an ultrasound bone healing system might be able to expedite the recovery process. The traditional treatment of fractures involves an immobilizing cast and a rest period while bones heal over the course of about six weeks. If someone has been diagnosed with a displaced fracture, he or she might also require surgical correction of the injury prior to this cast. This can elongate the recovery period over several months. This time spent recovering might require someone to miss time from work or school.
