What is Ultrasound & How is it produced ?

Ultrasound is a high frequency soundwave.
It is produced by the vibration of a crystal inside a sound head. A gel is used to allow better transmission of soundwaves into by tissue.

What is it used for and what are the benefits of Ultrasound ?

Ultrasound speeds up the rate of soft tissue (tendon, muscle, ligament) repair after the acute phase of inflammation has subsided and also helps to reduce fibrous scar tissue. This, in turn, greatly reduces the risk of re-injury.

How does it speed up the healing process ?

By creating a mild soothing warmth it increases blood flow to the injured site allowing a greater rate of repair and removal of waste products.

Is it Safe ?

Yes. There are no side effects and the penetration is so effective that even deep soft tissue can be effectively treated.

Ask your PODIATRIST if your think you can benefit from Ultrasound
