Despite sharing the same name, we are not referring to the ultrasound commonly associated with pregnancies. The ultrasound therapy used in our office creates small sound waves to treat injuries related to joints, muscle spasms, and most soft tissue.
The sound waves actually penetrate deeper into the body before turning into heat which increases blood flow to facilitate the body’s healing process and decrease scar tissue formation. The heat combined with the sound waves can jump-start the healing process at the most basic cellular level, which shortens up your road to recovery.
This therapy works very well for areas of the body with many small muscles and tendons like wrists, elbows, and knees.
