Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves to treat medical problems, especially musculoskeletal problems such as tendinitis, joint swelling and muscle spasm. Ultrasound can also be used to achieve phonophoresis. This is a non-invasive way of administering medications to tissues below the skin; perfect for patients who are uncomfortable with injections.

Ultrasound has been shown to cause increases in:

  • healing rates
  • tissue relaxation
  • tissue heating
  • local blood flow
  • scar tissue breakdown
