The story about Sonic Relief’s birth is similar to many other stories.
A need, a lightbulb moment and a solution.
How it started - The Need
This is the story about a doctor and a chiropractor who were working together in a physical therapy clinic in Toronto Ontario in late 2002. The doctors were administering ultrasound treatment to a patient and the patient asked if he could take the treatment machine home. The patient didn’t have time to keep coming to the clinic (in this case 3 times per week) for his necessary treatments. What’s more, the treatments were expensive.
The Lightbulb Moment
The doctors began thinking that yes! Patients should be able to treat themselves at home with ultrasound.
They further thought about patient outcomes and that if the patients could treat their ailments with ultrasound more than a few times per week, (in fact more than once per day) that the patients would get better, faster! The seed for Sonic Relief home use ultrasound therapy had been planted.
In designing the first home use therapeutic ultrasound device they solidified the cornerstones of Sonic Relief and these are still the most important features today.
Then, as still holds true today, Sonic Relief home use ultrasound should be:
Portable - treat soft tissue injuries and conditions with ultrasound at home, use it when and where you want.
Affordable - cheaper than paying for office visits or professional units, saving time and money - not having to take time off work to get treatment,
Safe - pre-set to be made safe for home use - and easy too!
Effective - has to work! And even better than going into the office - getting people back to work, back to life, back to health faster - and in their own home.
The doctors partnered with a major Ultrasound Gel manufacturer who helped to develop the signature Sonic Relief Medicated Ultrasound Gel to make portable home use ultrasound even more effective.
After conducting Clinical Testing for effectiveness and safety, consulting with recognized and respected practitioners, and completing designs, Sonic Relief was released to the world.
Today, Sonic Relief has been successfully providing pain relief for over 15 years! There are over a quarter of a million Sonic Relief users - some who still have the original Sonic Relief - all over the world.
I used the Sonic Relief for 5 minutes on each elbow on the first day x 2 sessions and for the first time in 6 months I had NO pain for the entire night!! I have now had 5 treatments over 3 days virtually no pain at all during the day and none at night.
