Ultrasound is a painless therapeutic treatment using high frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue injuries. Sound vibrations, as fast as a million times per second, penetrate the tissues deep in the body. These vibrations help break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard tissue accumulations (such as spurs and fibrotic tissue). Patient benefits include stimulation of healing without irritation, increased metabolism and blood flow and a decrease in nerve irritation. Ultrasound is highly effective in the treatment of bursitis, heel spurs, tennis elbow, trauma and many other conditions.
