Ultrasound Therapy

How does it work?

When using ultrasound, sound waves cause vibrations that generate heat in your tissues at a deep level to increase circulation while reducing pain. Heat produced by ultrasound during physical therapy can loosen tight muscles and tendons enabling muscles to more easily stretch.

What are the benefits?

  • Increase Blood Flow.Increased blood flow means more nutrients will be delivered to the area of your injury while waste is carried away enhancing the healing process.
  • Reduce Swelling and Inflammation. Ultrasound therapy has been shown to reduce stiffness in muscles and joints while increasing range of motion.
  • Promote Tissue Healing.
    The vibration produced by the ultrasound can help prevent scar tissue from forming.

Conditions Ultrasound Therapy can Treat

While increased blood flow, reduced swelling and inflammation, and tissue healing are general benefits of ultrasound, there are several specific conditions these processes can help heal. The following are a few of the physical conditions that can be treated.


  • Bursitis and Tendonitis
  • Muscle Strains and Tears
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  • Bone Fractures
