Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound stimulates, penetrates, and repairs damaged tissues in addition to relieving pain, increasing blood flow, relaxing muscle spasms, and dramatically speeding up the healing process. In fact, some of the therapeutic effects of ultrasound are:

  • Stimulates healing without irritation
  • Temporary analgesia
  • Increased peripheral blood flow and metabolism
  • Increased cell membrane permeability
  • Breaks up and softens scar tissue and adhesions
  • Peripheral nerve conduction changes
  • Reduces nerve root irritation, inflammation, swelling, and calcium deposits
  • Relief of muscle spasms
  • Enhances the body’s natural healing process
