Learn more in the answers to some of the most common questions about therapeutic ultrasound below.
How Exactly Does Therapeutic Ultrasound Work?
If you’ve been pregnant, know someone who has, or even watched a movie with a pregnant woman, you’re likely familiar with ultrasound technology. However, generating images of a baby isn’t its only use. That same technology can send sound waves to targeted tissues to produce heat, which improves blood flow, reduces inflammation, and addresses tension. This helps decrease pain and improve range of motion.
What Conditions and Symptoms Can It Help With?
Therapeutic ultrasound is beneficial for a variety of issues, including but not limited to:
- Breaking up scar tissue
- Myofascial pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Joint stiffness
- Sprains and strains
- Frozen shoulder
Is It Used Alone?
Though therapeutic ultrasound can provide many benefits on its own, chiropractors typically combine it with other techniques for optimal results. When dealing with issues in the musculoskeletal system, like those listed above, it’s vital that both the hard and soft tissues be treated. Restoring alignment through adjustments and addressing soft tissues through therapeutic ultrasound is just one example of how treatments might be combined.
Will the Chiropractor Recommend It For My Treatment?
Therapeutic ultrasound can be a very effective method of treatment for most people. However, chiropractic care plans are developed around the individual and their specific condition. Our chiropractors will combine the best methods of treatment for you, which may or may not include therapeutic ultrasound. If you’re curious about this technique for your condition, our chiropractors will be happy to discuss why it may or may not be the right choice for your needs.
