What is Ultrasound?
It is a therapeutic treatment using high-frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue injuries.
How does it work?
Sound vibrations, as fast as a million times per second, penetrate the tissues deep in the body, creating a heat response.
These vibrations and heat help break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard tissue accumulations.
What does it feel like?
The gel used to conduct the sound waves is at room temperature and may momentarily feel cool to the skin when it is initially applied.
Most patients feel nothing or a pleasant and relaxing sensation below the surface of the skin.
Why is it used?
Ultrasound treatment can usually be administered directly to the area of complaint, penetrating deep into the body.
The rise in temperature, increases in blood flow, relaxes muscle spasms,
massages damaged tissues, and speeds the healing process.
