Ultrasound is utilized therapeutically to treat conditions related to joints, muscles, as well as most soft tissues. While it shares the same name, therapeutic ultrasound is not the same as diagnostic ultrasound used to screen internally in the body.
Therapeutic ultrasound creates small sound waves that treat soft tissue and muscle. These sound waves promote and aid the healing process in addition to decreasing inflammation.
Ultrasound also creates a warming effect to help relax tight, tense, and sore muscles. This therapy starts the healing process at the most basic cellular level, speeding your road to recovery.
