PMID:  9602971     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This paper identifies techniques in ultrasound that influence healing tissues. The importance of appropriate parameters is emphasized. Current literature is reviewed to support the use of ultrasound in specific conditions and different phases of healing. Types of wounds discussed include delayed-closure wounds, deep soft-tissue wounds, tendon and nerve repairs, bone fracture, and burn injury. There is a need for research in ultrasound directly related to hand therapy.
