Ultrasound is a treatment offered by many physical therapists for reducing pain.
This is not the same procedure as ultrasound used for imaging purposes.
We use ultrasound in combination with chiropractic adjustments to reduce pain, promote tissue healing, relax tight musculature, and increase blood circulation.
Conditions commonly treated with ultrasound include: arthritis, sprains and strains, bursitis, tendonitis, frozen shoulder, muscle tension, joint contracture, the reduction of scar tissue, and many more.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to send a deep therapeutic heat into the body resulting in an increase in circulation, and enhancement of cellular repair after injury.
