Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment used most often for soft tissue injuries, minimizing muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to deliver deep heat to the treated tissues. The treatments may help reduce stiffness, swelling, and pain, increase circulation, and promote pain-free movement. Ultrasound therapy may be used alone or in conjunction with stretching, therapeutic massage, heat, or gentle chiropractic manipulation. Ultrasound therapy is a painless procedure, and many people find it relaxing.
Ultrasound in rehabilitation therapy should not be confused with diagnostic ultrasound. When you are receiving an ultrasound treatment, it is likely you will not feel anything except perhaps a slight warming sensation or tingling around the area of treatment.
