Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Thanks for the question. I would like to say that yes ultrasound therapy can be used to treat gout related symptoms such as great option to decrease inflammation, pain, tension and soft tissue damage experienced with gout. You can use your own therapy using a portable, home ultrasound device or can also see physiotherapist for that. This will not cure gout so thats why important to take medications as advised along with ultrasound therapy which might only be helpful in treating symptoms. You should see also Rheumatologist as specialist in dealing such cases. Let me know if you have any other question. Best wishes.
Do accept the answer in this way I will be rewarded for my work and time here for you. Positive feedback & bonuses will be appreciated.
Best of luck and keep in touch
