THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND

Movement for Life

Therapeutic ultrasound is a modality that has been used by physiotherapists since the 1940s. Ultrasound is applied using the head of an ultrasound probe placed in direct contact with your skin via a transmission coupling gel.

Therapeutic ultrasound may increase:

  • healing rates

  • tissue relaxation

  • tissue heating

  • local blood flow

  • scar tissue breakdown.
