What is Sonic Relief?

Sonic Relief is your personal therapeutic ultrasound device. It’s the same ultrasound technology used at your physical therapists office designed and tested to be effective and safe for home use ultrasound therapy. It is lightweight, safe and portable. Its contoured handle allows for comfortable, easy application to all areas of the body. Use it at home, while traveling or at the office!


Cost Effective and Convenient

Sonic Relief delivers the same kind of pain relief and healing benefits as professional ultrasound treatment at the physical therapy office. When used in conjunction with other physical therapy regimens, users can reduce recurring physical therapy costs and decrease time traveling to inconvenient appointments. Your Sonic Relief unit may be covered by private insurance plans.


What is it Used for?

Your Sonic Relief unit has been demonstrated to be an effective therapeutic device for the treatment of multiple medical ailments. Sonic Relief emits ultrasound waves at a frequency of 1-million vibrations per second (1 MHz). Its pulsed wave technology with 10 minute shut-off makes Sonic Relief safe to use.

Key Benefits of ultrasound

Ultrasound is a therapeutic modality that uses high-frequency sound waves that penetrate the skin’s surface and improve damage and inflammation of soft tissue injuries and conditions. Ultrasound is not a new technology, it’s been used in professional practice since the 1940s. Physical therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists and sports therapists all use ultrasound to help their patients with their pain and injuries.


Increases Blood Flow

Ultrasound waves cause increases in tissue relaxation and local blood flow to the treatment area. The effect of the increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation. Increased blood flow delivers needed oxygen and nutrients, and removes cell wastes.


Enhances Absorption of Analgesics and Anti-inflammatory Agents

Ultrasound can also be used to achieve phonophoresis. This is a non-invasive way of enhancing the absorption of analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents to tissues below the skin using ultrasound waves.


Decreases Trigger Point Pain

Ultrasound works by decreasing the pain/sensitivity associated with muscular trigger points. Studies have demonstrated trigger points to be important causes of headache, back ache and all types of muscular/soft tissue “overuse” syndromes.

How Long Until I Notice Results?

Sonic Relief treats a myriad of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries and conditions. Healing can take time but will be sped-up with regular and consistent use of ultrasound therapy.


It’s recommended that you treat your back condition 2-3 times per day when possible for up to 4 weeks.


During treatment, you will not feel much sensation. You may feel a slight tingling, soothing sensation.


Sonic Relief does not produce significant noticeable sound or motion. It does not vibrate or act like a ‘massager’. Sonic Relief is a medical device that provides low-dose therapeutic ultrasound.


Some people feel some easing of pain and inflammation and gain in range of motion within the hour after their very first treatment. Many take a few days to start to feel relief depending on the severity and length of time they’ve had the painful or inflammatory condition.
