Ultra-sonic Therapy (US)
Ultrasound diathermy uses sound waves to treat deep tissues. Heat is generated by the vibration of the tissue. This promotes blood flow into the area. Ultrasound diathermy is used for:
• calcaneal spur
• musculoskeletal sprains
• muscle spasms
• joint contractures or adhesions
Therapeutic ultrasound is often used by physiotherapists to reduce pain, increase circulation, and increase the mobility of soft tissues. Additionally, the application of ultrasound can be helpful in the reduction of inflammation, reducing pain, and the healing of injuries and wound
• Increase blood flow to an area in order to accelerate the resolution time of the inflammatory process.
• Stimulate the production of collagen (the main protein in tendons and ligaments) during tissue healing.
• Muscle Strain and tears
• Ligament and tendon injuries
• ow back pain
• Post-surgical pain1
