What Is Therapeutic Ultrasound?

The term "ultrasound" refers to sound waves generated in a frequency range far above that of human hearing. While you may have heard of it in the context of diagnostic imaging, therapeutic ultrasound operates at different frequencies than diagnostic ultrasound. The therapeutic instruments usually generate frequencies of 1MHz or 3MHz. 

When ultrasonic energy comes into contact with injured or ailing human tissues, some remarkable changes can occur. The waves increase blood flow to the treatment site, warming, and relaxing the tissues while also accelerating the healing process. 

Ultrasound also causes fluids to move through and among cells more easily, a phenomenon known as streaming. Meanwhile, ultrasonic vibration appears to increase the flexibility of collagen, a component of scar tissue and other structures, so that tissues can operate more comfortably and freely.

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis

  • Sprained ligaments
  • Wrist pain
  • Running injuries
  • Adhesions (lumps of scar tissue that limit musculoskeletal motion)

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "My name is Lilian and I have struggled with back pain as a result of poor posture. I have been experiencing scoliosis and nerve aches since my teenage years. After a number of visits with two separate neurologists, their recommendation was to simply use pain medication and accept living in pain. Ultimately, I turned to chiropractic care as a final option. Looking back, I wish I could've known sooner about going to see a chiropractor. This specialized care restored my health and changed my outlook on life. It totally transformed my attitude, while enhancing my overall performance physically and psychologically. I went from being in a foul mood most of the time and not sleeping through the night, to being able to function with my everyday workload and even initiating a workout regimen."

  • "Excellent service, they explain everything and help you to really improve, not for a simple back adjustment"

  • "I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, anxiety disorder and PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). I was in constant pain and sometimes wasn't able to do simple household chores. I had horrible fatigue and woke up exhausted every day even if I slept 10 hours. I Had migraines daily and anxiety attacks that eventually would come with no apparent cause. I was depressed and miserable. I went to every specialist: Endocrinologist, cardiologist, neurologist, rheumatologist... Some thought I was crazy and asked if I was having suicidal thoughts. I was given medications that I refused to take. Most doctors couldn't get lab results to support any diagnosis so they said it's fibromyalgia. My first adjustment got rid of my horrible anxiety. After a week of chiropractic care, the fatigue started to go away until it was completely gone. I rarely get headaches anymore. The pain I had everywhere started to decrease after the first month. Chiropractic got me out of my bed and out of depression."

  • "Jennifer had done wonders for my shoulder. My first visit I had shoulder lock and I could barely move my arm at all. Three visits later I have full motion and I haven’t felt better. It’s pretty mind blowing what this place is capable of! Visit ASAP"
