What is Ultrasound Treatment?
Ultrasound is the application of sound waves above human hearing to tissue to increase healing in an area. Ultrasound that is applied to an injured area provides a "micromassage", or a vibration at the cellular level. This treatment decreases pain, increases flexibility, and speeds the healing process. Ultrasound may also cause mild heating to occur in the area, depending on how it is applied.
What does Ultrasound Treatment feel like?
When properly applied, ultrasound will cause almost no sensation at all, although a mild warmth may be felt on the skin and sometimes deeper in the tissue.
