Ultrasound TherapyUltrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy uses varying frequencies of sound either continuously or in short bursts to promote blood flow to injured tissues. The frequencies emit vibrations, stimulating vasodilation in the area that the sound waves reach. This allows for increased blood flow to those areas, along with blood factors that promote healing. Using different and alternating frequencies allows us to reach tissues of varying depths. Unlike other modalities we use, ultrasound uses mechanical sound energy as opposed to electrical impulses and is sensation-free. Thus ultrasound may be preferable when treating areas that are more osseus (non-fracture injuries), or anatomically more bone than soft tissue. Ultrasound is also of use particularly for treatment of mastitis resulting from clogged ducts, common when breastfeeding.
