Abstract

Based on studies in laboratory animals, the known phases of fracture healing, and the properties of ultrasound energy, we have been able to formulate specific indications, regimens, and techniques for the ultrasound stimulation of fracture healing during the past 20 years. Our clinical experience is based on results in 2500 patients who were treated at three medical institutions under virtually identical conditions.
