Ultrasound

Image

This therapeutic modality is used to help improve circulation, reduce pain, decrease inflammation, and promote tissue healing in localized tissues. A plain gel or gel infused with an anti-inflammatory mixture is used to safely administer the acoustic energy into the tissues which creates a heating effect on the deeper tissues. The deep heating properties of ultrasound can increase tissue temperatures as deep as 3cm or more without causing excessive heating in the superficial or top layers of tissue. Therapists can use ultrasound to treat scar tissue, subacute and chronic inflammation, muscle guarding, neuromas, trigger points, and other soft tissue impairments.
