Article is in category:Energy therapies which appears to include (only) "alternative" med. Wondering if this article really belongs there.

Why is there no talk about the efficacy of therapeutic ultrasound treatments? There is absolutely no evidence that therapeutic ultrasound is any more effective than placebo treatments, yet there is no mention of it on this page. This treatment seems to be nothing more than pseudoscience, and BELONGS in alternative medicine. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:41, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Agreed with above. I work in the medical field and most of these studies have thready evidence to advocate FOR u/s use. I wouldn't be questioning this science if there was ANY evidence listed that backed it up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:54, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Need clarity on effectiveness of use in physical therapy[edit]

I came to this article to learn about therapeutic ultrasound, specifically as used in physical therapy. My physical therapist's assistant told me that it "draws white blood cells to the area". First, does it do that? Second, what benefit is there to that? (referring to a joint being worked on to improve range of motion, diminished by a soft tissue tear). I suspect it's bunk, but the evidence on all sides should be weighed objectively. (talk) 21:42, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Wait -- you've posted that the article "needs clarity" and that "all sides should be weighed" because your "therapist's assistant" told you something that you "suspect ... is bunk?" Really? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:21, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Sustained Acoustic Medicine[edit]

An obvious parent page - article really promotional of device - 11 of the refs given include the device maker's name of Lewis Iztwoz (talk) 08:32, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Doing research and found articles on intervention that should be added:

  • Sustained acoustic medicine is a wearable home use medical device different from ultrasound therapy applied in the medical setting so it should not be merged with therapeutic ultrasound. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Firepuck25 (talkcontribs) 20:45, 25 May 2017 (UTC) Firepuck25 (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.
Really article is saying nothing that hasn't already been added by Firepuck25 to Therapeutic ultrasound page imo page only needs a redirect now. None of the added comments here are from known unbiased editors which leaves a support from ITasteLike Paint --Iztwoz (talk) 21:17, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
