wounded ultrasound

    Dear all, Any opine would be great. I have recently become aware of wound Ph affecting healing of wounds. Something I'd never considered.

    I have also been hearing of people using ultrasound in treatment of wounds, I liked the idea as to my low logic, this would increase metabolism thus increase healing?

    But it appears that, it increases alkali conditions which impede healing? does it cause alkali condition?

    Also aware pretty much every paper ever written is low quality thus rejectedbar 2 to my knowledge. Maybe we don't knife how to use the machines?

    I assumed a wound would become more acidic with prolonged inflammation?

    are there any good devices to measure Ph? Is it actually that relevant among you're posts are above 3 and no gross deformity exists?

    Has anyone had success from US and wounds?

    How can we lower Ph?

    Thanks for reading a ramble, look forward to your response

    Possibly too many questions without structure.

    Has anyone used ultrasound for wound healing?

    Were there any changes to healing?

    I don't know of anyone who is doing it and apart form the link above from Admin2, I have never come across it, so assume that no one is really using ultrasound.
