Ultrasound increases blood flow to the affected area. This blood flow delivers nutrients and carries away waste which promotes healing and decreases swelling associated with inflammation.
Thermal Ultrasound – Continuous sound waves absorbed by the body that can reduce or control pain and muscle spasms, increase circulation and soft tissue flexibility.
Non-thermal Ultrasound – Pulsed sound waves absorbed by the body to accelerate tissue healing and promote the reduction of tissue inflammation.
