Therapeutic Ultrasound

What does it do?

The heating and massaging effects of Therapeutic Ultrasound have 2 primary benefits. First, it increases blood flow in the treated area which speeds the healing process. Second, it reduces swelling and edema which are the main sources of pain.
Therapists are increasingly offering ultrasound treatments in conjunction with regular massage as a pain free method of releasing trigger points and knots in all the muscles. Using ultrasound on the trigger points of injured muscles helps to relax the muscle from the trauma of the injury. Relaxed muscles can heal from injury much more quickly and more effectively with less scar tissue. While full body ultrasound treatments are not practical, ultrasound treatments on localised trouble areas are very effective. Ultrasound greatly helps reduce pain from an injury.
