Ultrasound therapy has been shown to increase:
- healing rates
- tissue relaxation
- local blood flow
- scar tissue breakdown.
The effect of ultrasound via an increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation. The intensity or power density of the ultrasound can be adjusted depending on the desired effect.
The most common conditions treated with ultrasound include soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis, non-acute joint swelling and muscle spasm. Most muscle and ligament injuries can benefit from therapeutic ultrasound.
Our experienced and highly skilled team of chiropractors are trained in the use of ultrasound therapy and may use this therapy in your treatment plan to help speed up your recovery.Make an Appointment
