Therapeutic Ultrasound

What is it?

Therapeutic Ultrasound uses acoustic energy at a high frequency to produce continuous waves of low impulse bursts.

How does it work?

The Thermal bursts speeds up recovery time by stimulating cell reproduction.  The cell reproduction along with increased blood flow helps stimulate your body’s immune response. 

Treatment

Gel is used with a circular motion from the ultrasound head.  A deep, penetrating, warm sensation is felt during the application.
