Therapeutic ultrasound is a modality that has been used by Chiropractors since the 1940s. Ultrasound is applied using the head of an ultrasound probe that is placed in direct contact with your skin via a transmission coupling gel. Therapeutic ultrasound has been shown to cause increases in: healing rates, tissue relaxation, tissue heating, local blood flow and scar tissue breakdown.

How Does Ultrasound Work?

The ultrasound waves are generated by a piezoelectric effect caused by the vibration of crystals within the head of the probe. The ultrasound waves that pass through the skin cause a vibration of the local soft tissues. This vibration or cavitation can cause a deep heating locally though usually no sensation of heat will be felt by the patient. Like all medical equipment, when used by highly trained professionals such as your Chiropractor therapist, therapeutic ultrasound is very unlikely to cause any adverse effects. Please consult your Doctor for their expert opinion on the best use of therapeutic ultrasound and your injury.
