Therapeutic ultrasound should not be confused with diagnostic ultrasound used to see the inside of the body, especially during pregnancy. Therapeutic ultrasound provides deep heating to the body’s soft tissues, including tendons, joints, muscles, and ligaments. This therapeutic approach has two effects:
Deep heating the muscles, tendons, ligaments, or joints improves blood circulation and eventually promotes a faster healing process and reduces pain. Experts also believe that deep heating increases tight muscles’ stretchiness. So if you have a frozen shoulder, our therapists can recommend an ultrasound to improve your shoulder’s range of motion.
Therapeutic ultrasound provides the body with energy that enables the rapid contraction and expansion of gas bubbles in your tissues (cavitation). Cavitation helps speed up the healing process of damaged tissues and cellular processes.
