Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a modality that uses a machine to conduct deep heat into a tissue to help increase circulation, increase tissue relaxation, scar tissue breakdown and promote healing. The machine may be adjusted using different wave frequencies to affect either deep structures, such as the multifidus (a deep muscle in the low back) or the extensor carpi radialis (a superficial muscle in the forearm).
