Theraputic Ultrasound

Our office employs the use of therapeutic ultrasound in the rehabilitation of many of our patients. Ultrasound gel is placed on your injured area and the ultrasound head (or wand) is moved around so that the ultrasound waves can be transmitted into your tissues. There are three primary benefits of ultrasound therapy. First, it speeds up your healing process by increasing blood flow to your injured/ affected area as well as increasing collagen production. Second, it decreases pain by reducing swelling, or edema. Third, it softens scar tissue that is present in that treated area.
