Our chiropractor is here to provide soft tissue therapy and physical modalities for your soft tissue injuries, sports injuries, work injuries, and more.
What Is Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound therapy is one of several physical modalities a chiropractor uses to treat joint pain, tendonitis, and soft tissue injuries. It’s also useful in recovery from sports injuries and work injuries.
Ultrasound therapy uses a tool that produces sound waves to create vibrations in the target area. These waves are able to reach areas that other methods may not be effective at reaching.
The vibrations created help to address tension and scar tissue in the target area. The light amount of heat produced during the therapy helps to pull blood to the soft tissue injuries, which leads to faster healing.
Combining Chiropractic Forces
Due to its ability to penetrate hard-to-reach areas and break up scar tissue, ultrasound can be an effective way to address joint pain and other chronic issues. Thanks to it helping to promote blood flow, it may be very helpful when healing from work injuries, sports injuries, and automobile accident injuries.
Ultrasound therapy is can be beneficial in these areas, but for the best results, it’s often used in conjunction with other treatments. With most injuries and chronic conditions, the rest of the musculoskeletal system may play a part. This includes the muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, and tendons.
For healing and pain relief, each of these can be addressed, which is why both soft tissue therapy and hard tissue manipulation can be used together. While the specifics will rely on your exact condition and symptoms, ultrasound will often be used alongside treatments such as spinal adjustments, physical modalities,and even acupuncture. Your treatment plan can be developed after our team has had the opportunity to assess your condition to determine the route to address the root cause.
