Ultrasound refers to high frequency sound waves which are used to penetrate deep into the tissue, up to five centimeters, and create a vibration in the cells. These high frequency sound waves affect tissue on the cellular level, energizing the tissues causing them to vibrate.
Furthermore, it may enhance the nutrient absorption rate and blood flow in the area. This increases the blood circulation to the area which in turn reduces pain and assists in the healing of damaged cells
Ultrasound does four things extremely well
Increases blood flow into the treated area, accelerates healing, and removes toxins
Produces a pain killing effect, reducing muscle spasm and promoting normal function
Softens fibrous and scar tissue, increasing flexibility and reducing chance of recurring muscle and tendon pulls
Gently massages muscle and tendon tissue, increasing range of motion and lengthening atrophied muscle
