Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a high-frequency heat treatment used to stimulate blood flow to an area, in order to promote healing and relieve inflammation for such conditions as tennis elbow and other tendinopathic injuries and conditions.

Ultrasonic therapy is also effective in reducing muscle spasms and softening fibrous as well as scar tissue - relieving pain and restoring normal function.

A gel, which allows the ultrasound waves to travel into the body, is placed on the affected area. A “sound head” is used in a circular motion over the area and directs the waves in either a “pulse mode” (no heat) or a “continuous mode” (heat transfer to body tissues).
