Ultrasound Therapy

What is Ultrasound Therapy?

Ultrasonic sound waves are driven into soft tissues using a transducer or applicator that is in direct contact with the patient’s skin. The ultrasonic sound waves are absorbed by connective tissue (tendons, ligaments, fascia, scar tissue) and this allows for:

  • speeding up the healing process from increased blood flow in the treatment area.
  • Decrease in pain from the reduction of swelling and edema.
  • Gentle massage of muscles, tendons and/or ligaments in the treated area because no strain is added and any scar tissue is softened.
