Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound is a form of thermotherapy (heat treatment) that helps to heal painful conditions and repair soft tissue damage. Ultrasound therapy uses high-frequency sound waves that can penetrate up to 2 inches into your skin.

The sound waves are applied using a round-headed probe that is put in direct contact with the patient’s skin. Ultrasound gel is used on all surfaces of the head as a coupling medium in order to reduce friction and assist in the transmission of the ultrasonic waves. Therapeutic ultrasound is in the frequency range of about 0.8-3.0 MHz.

Ultrasound can produce many effects such as localized heating of the tissues, increases in tissue relaxation, local blood flow, and scar tissue breakdown.

The effect of the increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and, according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing. The intensity or power density of the ultrasound can be adjusted depending on the desired effect. A greater power density (measured in watt/cm2) is often used in cases where scar tissue breakdown is the goal.
