Muscle, Tendon, Ligaments & Soft Tissue treatment
Our ultrasound therapy promotes tissue healing and is very effective to treat acute or chronic pain in muscles & tendons.
Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves generated through a transducer head to penetrate soft tissues.
Ultrasound therapy vibrates tissue on a macroscopic level to heat the muscle tissue using high-frequency sound to heat an area & increasing blood supply.
It promotes healing and reduces inflammation by creating a histamine response in the body, reducing tendonitis and increase elasticity. Basically, it stretches the muscle without having to physically move it.
Ultrasound treatment is a safe, non-invasive treatment for tendonitis.
Sports injury clinic in the states say that ultrasound stimulates the production of collagen, the main protein that makes up soft tissues like tendons and ligaments, accelerating healing time.
Ultrasound therapy is normally performed by a therapist in conjunction with other therapies, so there is no need to see a separate therapist. Treatments are short, lasting only several minutes for each affected area. The 2006 article in the "Journal of Undergraduate Kinesiology Research" states that their study revealed an increase in joint strength, decrease in pain level and increased range of motion with ultrasound therapy.
