Therapeutic Ultrasound is a method of stimulating tissue beneath the skins surface using sound waves. It is a very high frequency massage that can penetrate up to 5” below the surface of your skin.
Therapeutic ultrasound have 3 primary benefits:
- Ultrasound therapy increases blood flow in the treated area which speeds up the healing process
- Ultrasound therapy reduces swelling and edema which are the main sources of pain
- Ultrasound waves gently massage the muscles, tendons and/or ligaments in the treated area. This enhances the recovery rate of damaged tissue without adding strain and softens any scar tissue that is usually present in an injured area
