Ultrasound is a commonly used modality of deep heating. Two techniques of application have been recommended: a technique in which the applicator head is applied directly to the subject and an immersion technique, The purpose of this study was to determine whether ultrasound treatments using the immersion technique in degassed water are as effective as ultrasound treatments using the direct technique of application in raising the temperature of periarticular structures into the therapeutic range. The limbs of a pig were treated with the direct and immersion techniques of application. Temperatures of the skin surface and of the extensor tendons of the ankle were taken before and after both methods of application. Treatments with the applicator head in direct contact with the limb of the subject were the more effective form of heating.
