In addition, we also provide therapeutic ultrasound treatments that can help relieve pain and promote healing. Below is some more information about therapeutic ultrasound to help you learn about this amazing technique and its benefits for you.
What Is Therapeutic Ultrasound?
Therapeutic ultrasound is a type of therapy that uses sound waves to reduce pain and promote healing. This treatment modality may be effective for a variety of conditions, including:
- Muscle spasms
- Sprains and strains
How Does Therapeutic Ultrasound Work?
Therapeutic ultrasound works by delivering sound waves to the affected area. These sound waves create vibrations that can help to reduce pain and promote healing. The sound waves can also help to increase blood flow to the area, which can speed up the healing process.
What Are the Benefits of Therapeutic Ultrasound?
Unfortunately, much pain treatment today centers around medications that can have a variety of side effects. Therapeutic ultrasound can be a safe and effective alternative to pain medications, and it can have a variety of benefits, including:
- Reduced pain
- Increased blood flow
- Accelerated healing
- Improved range of motion
What to Expect During Your Appointment with a Chiropractor on Our Team
During your appointment, you may be asked to lie on a comfortable treatment table. A gel may be applied to the area of your body that is being treated. The gel helps to conduct the sound waves and allows them to penetrate deep into your tissues. Then, the ultrasound device will be placed on your skin and moved around the treated area. You may feel a tingling or warming sensation during the treatment. After your treatment, you will be able to return to your normal activities, if your injury or condition allows.
