What is Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound therapy is the treating injuries, pain and other conditions. Ultrasound waves are very high-frequency sound waves that reside outside the range detectable by human ears. These ultrasound waves are able to stimulate tissues and this stimulation causes heating and cell activity that is thought to result in accelerated recovery times for certain injuries.
What Types of Pain Can Ultrasound Treat?
Ultrasound can and is used to treat many different types of pain from runner's knee to muscle spasms and even back pain. It is generally up to your physical therapist to decide on which types of pain to treat with ultrasound. Few studies show ultrasound increases recovery time for many injuries. However, for specific injuries some studies have shown increased recovery times.
