Ultrasound Gout Therapy demonstrates the ability to evoke a broad range of therapeutically beneficial effects that may provide safe and effective applications in the treatment of Gout and Gout related conditions.

Lithotripsy is well documented as a technique breaking Kidney Stones in parts and evacuation them and is used since the early 1980s.

Uric Acid crystals are very small compared to Kidney Stones, but nevertheless, intensities of 2W/sqr cm are needed for treating Uric Acid Crystals.

Ultrasound Gout Therapy is a technique that utilizes high-frequency mechanical vibrations.

These high frequency deep penetrating mechanical vibrations help to evacuate Uric Acid by:

  • Helping re-dissolve Uric Acid when concentrations are below the saturation point.

  • Helping break away Uric Acid from protein covering

  • Helping Uric Acid transportation, propulsion

Ultrasound Therapy is deemed safe by the FDA provided it is performed by a licensed person
