Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound is a high frequency sound wave that occurs when an electrical current is carried into the sound head of the machine, causing the crystal inside the head to vibrate rapidly. This "sound" vibration enters the patient's body, providing deep heat and massage to the tissues.
Benefits of Therapeutic Ultrasound

Rapid healing of tissue due to the increase in blood flow to the treated area

Decrease in pain from the reduction of swelling and edema

Gentle massage of muscles, tendons and or ligaments

Softening of hardened scar tissue

Ultrasound is applied using a round-headed wand or probe that is in direct contact with the patient's skin. Gel is used on all surfaces of the head to reduce friction and assist transmission of the ultrasonic waves.

Maximum energy absorption in soft tissues occurs from 2 to 5 cm (1-2 inches). Ultrasound is very gentle, and is soothing and comforting to the patient.
