Therapeutic ultrasound has been used by physiotherapists since the 1940s. Ultrasound is applied using the head of an ultrasound probe that is placed in direct contact with your skin via a transmission coupling gel.
The effect of ultrasound via an increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and can also promote bone fracture healing.
The most common conditions treated with ultrasound include soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis , non-acute joint swelling and muscle spasm. Most muscle and ligament injuries can benefit from therapeutic ultrasound. A typical ultrasound treatment will take from 3-5 minutes. In cases where scar tissue breakdown is the goal, this treatment time can be much longer.
