Many health care facilities do not utilize ultrasound because it takes time, but it is one of the best ways to heal injuries to ligaments and structures like bursa and meniscus.
Ultrasound Therapy is a deep heat technique used to penetrate soft tissue and help treat chronic pain. It can treat shoulder pain, joint tightness, sprains and strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, ligament injuries and more.
Ultrasound Therapy is performed on a small surface area from anywhere to 5 to 10 minutes. Where a gel is applied either to the transducer head or to your skin, which helps the sound waves evenly penetrate the skin. During the treatment, we will continually move the transducer head over and around the selected area. You will feel a mild pulsing or a slight warmth in the skin, but there is no pain associated with this type of therapy.
