Ultrasound is simply high frequency sounds waves above the range that we can hear. It is applied to the body from the ‘head’ of an ultrasound machine. A gel is used to help the waves travel into the body rather than be reflected off the skin.
It produces benefits like:
- increased blood supply which promotes healing,
- produces a pain killing effect which can reduce muscle spasm, and promote normal function,
- softens fibrous tissues and scar tissue which are formed during healing.
At Back II Life, it is used as an integral part of most treatment plans at various stages of healing. It is also coupled with glucosamine gel to create sonophoresis or deeper penetration of the glucosamine into joints and injured tissues.
