Ultrasound physiotherapy has been used since the 1940s. Ultrasound is applied to your skin using the head of an ultrasound probe through transmission coupling gel. This treatment can take place anywhere on your body.
Ultrasound physiotherapy has been shown to heal injuries, relax tissue, heal tissue, help circulate blood flow, and assist with scar tissue breakdown. Ultrasound physiotherapy is used to treat soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis, non-acute joint swelling, and muscle spasms. If you are experiencing muscle and ligament injuries, you will benefit greatly from ultrasound physiotherapy.
We are proud to offer ultrasound physiotherapy right here in our office in La Porte, Indiana. The ultrasound waves are generated by a piezoelectric effect. The ultrasound waves will pass through the skin which cause a vibration of local soft tissues. The vibration will also cause a deep heating within the body, although you will not feel any heat. In injuries where heat is not desirable, we are able to use a pulse.
Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you become pain-free. Ultrasound physiotherapy is the perfect treatment method to help you achieve your goals. We will be happy to answer any questions you have before, during, or after your treatment.
