During this treatment, gel and an ultrasound machine is used to send sound waves into your body. The sound waves penetrate your skin and create a deep heating effect into your muscles and joints, which increases blood flow to the area. Ultrasound therapy is most commonly used to reduce chronic inflammation and swelling, promote bone fracture healing, and to break down any scar tissue that you may have. There are different settings on the machine used for this therapy, so you and your doctor can determine which intensity will give you the most results, while keeping you comfortable all at the same time. Ultrasound should NOT be used on areas where you have any metal implants, acute infections, and vascular abnormalities, so inform your doctor of these situations before treatment.
