Ultrasound therapy uses a gentle deep heat to increase blood flow and tissue extensibility, while reducing pain and inflammation. This device can also be used in a non-heat method to create a therapeutic effect on biologic tissues.
Therapeutic ultrasound may benefit in the treatment of:
- Muscle spasms
- Joint stiffness
- Slow healing wounds
- Helping manage pain
- Increasing local circulation to assist healing
- Increasing movements and flexibility in stiff muscles and joints
