Ultrasound machines deliver high-frequency sound waves into soft tissue.
We use ultrasound during diagnosis to get a picture of the injured area, but we also use it to promote healing – what’s known as therapeutic ultrasound.
Therapeutic ultrasound has been used since the 1950s and there’s evidence to suggest it:
Therapeutic ultrasound is most useful for tendonitis, ligament sprains, injuries to joint capsules and scar tissue.
Most ultrasound treatments will only take a few minutes and are used in conjunction with other manual therapies and exercise prescription. We’ll first use a gel, then we’ll move a probe across the skin over the affected area.
Ultrasound is considered very safe and comfortable when used by a trained professional, however we’ll do a thorough assessment first to make sure it’s suitable for you.
