Ultrasound for Healing Injuries and Reducing Pain

Idaho Chiropractic Group offers excellent chiropractic services in Boise, ID, including ultrasound therapy.

Ultrasound serves many purposes in the health industry. It is used to diagnose, administer medication, and treat conditions that used to require surgery. Its purpose for the chiropractor is to provide a specific heat to an area by ridding the problem of inflammation thus treating injured joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons.


Ultrasound Therapeutic Technique

Since the 1940s, health professionals, primarily occupational and physical therapists, have been using this technology. High-frequency sound waves stimulate tissue just beneath the skin’s surface by bringing blood flow to the site of absorbed sound waves.

It is used to treat sudden issues like sprains, strains, and chronic ailments such as osteoarthritis and lower back pain.

This technique is a preferred treatment method for chiropractors because it is non-invasive and inexpensive relief for their patients. It is also favorable due to the wide range of ailments that it addresses, namely plantar fasciitis, muscle and ligament sprains all over the body, lower back pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. The trick is to match the proper frequency to the appropriate area of concern and the appropriate condition to be treated.

When specifically dealing with musculoskeletal issues, ultrasound therapy effectively softens scar tissue, relieves inflammation, and improves blood flow to encourage healing.

Sound waves are absorbed into the soft tissues to stimulate affected areas through vibration. This requires multiple and consistent applications to be effective.

Thermal and Non-Thermal Effects

The absorbed sound waves result in a warmth at the site of tissue injury. This warmth allows blood vessels to open, and consequently, a rush of blood is brought to the area. This blood is beneficial in clearing inflammation and bringing healing nutrients to the tissue. It also primes the affected area to be more receptive to subsequent exercises and manual stretching.
