Electrotherapy (ultrasound)

Therapeutic ultrasound is a modality that has been used by physiotherapists since the 1940s. Ultrasound is applied using the head of an ultrasound probe that is placed in direct contact with your skin via a transmission coupling gel. High-frequency sound waves can be used to treat deep tissue injuries by stimulating blood circulation and cell activity.

Therapeutic ultrasound has been shown to cause increases in:
  • healing rates
  • tissue relaxation
  • tissue heating
  • local blood flow
  • scar tissue breakdown.
The most common conditions treated with ultrasound include soft tissue injuries such as tendinitis, non-acute joint swelling and muscle spasm. Most muscle and ligament injuries can benefit from therapeutic ultrasound.
