Will a personal ultrasound machine help me manage my chronic pain condition? I'd like to wean off of pain medications, but my pain is so debilitating that I will need regular treatment during the day. Do you think that an ultrasound machine would be a good treatment option for me?

The answer depends upon what the etiology and nature is of your pain syndrome.

Does ultrasound help?

If your pain is debilitating and you get relief from your meds, why would you like to "wean off" your pain meds?
