Ultrasound therapy is a form of chiropractic care that uses sound waves for medical purposes. At Woolbright Spine & Rehab, we perform ultrasound imaging for diagnosis determination and physical therapy. Read more below to find out about our ultrasound services.
Ultrasound Therapy for Diagnostic Purposes
Ultrasound is primarily known for its use in diagnosing a variety of health issues. Our chiropractor uses use ultrasound imaging to evaluate a patient's spinal structure, checking for any deformities or damaged areas in need of care. If an abnormality is found in the patient's spine, our chiropractor will create a treatment plan to address it. Outside of spinal care, ultrasound imaging can be used to assess other areas of the body including the legs, hips, neck, and shoulders.
Conditions Treated by Ultrasound
Aside from diagnostic testing, our chiropractor may use ultrasound therapy to stimulate blood flow to the injured areas of your body. Ultrasound waves are also capable of decreasing inflammation in the body's tissues, inducing relaxation in the patient through its pulses. Reducing inflammation in the body's tissues will decrease swelling and pain. Ultrasound therapy is similar to a massage therapy in its effects, aiding in overall health through blood flow and relaxation.
Therapeutic ultrasound has been known to treat arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, myofascial pain, joint strain, and personal injury cases. Ultimately, ultrasound treatment can be used to speed up the healing process, especially of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. The heat from the ultrasonic waves can provide relief to these structures.
