Therapeutic Ultrasound Therapy
Therapeutic ultrasound is a physiotherapy technique that aims to speed up the healing of damaged muscles, tendons, or ligaments by reducing inflammation and the amount of scar tissue laid down.
Therapeutic ultrasound is a very high frequency sound wave that when applied to tissue via a probe head, causes the molecules in its path to vibrate at a microscopic level. This has various beneficial effects including increasing the blood circulation to the area (which brings in healing cells and helps disperse natural toxins), decreases swelling, and speeds the rate of healing.
