Ultrasound therapy is a form of physical therapy in which healing sound waves penetrate deep muscle and tissue. As part of our physiotherapy program, therapeutic ultrasound can help relieve the inflammation, pain, swelling, and stiffness of many adverse musculoskeletal conditions. For example, the deep heat of ultrasound therapy can treat carpal tunnel syndrome. It soothes muscles with a non-invasive, surgery-free treatment program.
At Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates, our medical practitioners will explain the advantages of therapeutic ultrasound therapy and how it can be a valuable part of your treatment plan after an injury. Our physiotherapy techniques and supportive medical staff help you take charge of your recovery and get back to your preferred level of physical activity.
The Physiotherapy Benefits of Therapeutic Ultrasound
As outlined in the Journal of Ultrasound Medicine, focused ultrasound therapy works by warming tendons and muscles to increase blood flow to the afflicted area. It causes your body’s tissues to vibrate and release deep, soothing heat that improves circulation. This treatment is effective for chronic or persistent pain because increased blood flow encourages pain reduction and accelerated recovery from your injury.
Patients who receive therapeutic ultrasound do not require anesthesia and can remain fully awake and alert throughout the procedure. The procedure is simple; we first apply a conductive gel to the skin on and around the injury site. We then move the ultrasound device slowly over your skin, sending deep heat and sound waves to the affected area.
Injuries We Treat with Ultrasound Therapy
We treat employees who were injured at work, as well as victims of car, truck, bicycle, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents. We provide treatment for:
- Sports injuries
- Slip and fall injuries
- Knee, ankle, and wrist injuries
- Neck, back, and shoulder injuries
- Tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome
Many of these injuries can limit your mobility and range of motion, making it difficult to care for yourself or meet your daily personal needs. Our treatment programs are designed to alleviate pain, numbness, and tingling and restore your confidence in your body’s ability to perform.
We may also recommend periodic evaluation for our exercise and restorative stretching programs. These customized programs help by isolating treatment areas to increase strength. We do not enroll you in a canned exercise class – instead, we design a unique program specifically for you. Then, we regularly evaluate and reevaluate your progress to make tailored changes and modifications.
Other Therapies Our Team Can Use to Support Your Recovery
Our goal is to help all of our patients reach their Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) level. Reaching this point means you have regained as much mobility as possible and can go back to engaging in your usual activities. To help you achieve MMI, our team may incorporate other therapies and techniques into your treatment plan in addition to therapeutic ultrasound. These may include:
- Joint manipulation
- Soft tissue mobilization
- Soft tissue massage
- Electrical muscle stimulation
- Exercise programs
For example, rehabilitation therapy is a critical part of the treatment plan we customize for each of our patients. As such, our physiotherapy team uses a blend of rehabilitative and regenerative medicine to help injured clients recover and return to optimal health.
