Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound is a service used to treat patients using ultrasound waves generated by a piezoelectric effect caused by vibration of crystals within the head of the probe. The ultrasound waves that pass through the skin cause a vibration of the local soft tissues. The effects of the ultrasound can cause an increase in local blood flow, which can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation. 

Therapeutic ultrasound helps with:

  • healing rates

  • tissue relaxation

  • tissue heating

  • local blood flow

  • scar tissue breakdown
