Ultrasound is a form of physical therapy to treat injuries related to joint pains, stiffness and sprains, muscle soreness and spasms, as well as most soft tissues sprain and strain injuries, as well as arthritis pains . While it shares the same name, this ultrasound is not the same as the type of ultrasound utilized diagnostically to screen internally in the body. My ultrasound device creates small sound waves that in effect vibrate and massage soft tissues and muscle on the cellular level. These sound waves do an excellent job in facilitating the body's healing process, reducing inflammation and scar tissue formation.
Certain ultrasounds also create a heating effect to help relax the muscles or tightness in the body. This heat combined with the overall features of the ultrasound help to start the healing process at the most basic cellular level speeding up your road to recovery. Treatment is painless.
