Ultrasound therapy uses varrying frequencies of sound either continuously or is short bursts to enhance blood flow to different levels of your body’s tissues that may be affected as a result of an injury. Ultrasound is similar to many of our modalities because it enhances blood flow and promotes healing. It is different however, because instead of using electrical impulses, it uses mechanical sound energy to intensify your healing. The vibrations from the frequencies flowing through the machine signal to the brain that blood flow needs to be increased to that area. The amplifed amount of blood flow promotes quicker healing of the injured area.
