What is a Therapeutic Ultrasound?
While many people confuse a therapeutic ultrasound with diagnostic ultrasound, this type is actually a method of treatment, rather than a diagnostic tool. For those who are yet unfamiliar, therapeutic ultrasound is a method of treatment that is commonly used in physical therapy and chiropractic settings. A therapeutic ultrasound can be either thermal or non-thermal. A thermal ultrasound treatment method involves using deep heating to the soft tissues of the body like the tendons, muscles, joints, and ligaments.
The deep heating ultrasound helps to boost circulation, which is said to help stimulate the healing process. This can also help to boost the overall elasticity of muscles and tendons, which may be tight. This can help improve the general range of motion.
On the other hand, a non-thermal therapeutic ultrasound is used as a means of introducing energy into the body. This helps kickstart a process called cavitation, in which the microscopic gas bubbles surrounding your tissues rapidly expand and contract. This process is said to help boost cellular processes, which, in turn, helps shorten the healing time of injured tissues.
