Ultrasound

What is ultrasound?

Therapeutic ultrasound is simply sound waves vibrating at frequencies above those that can be heard by the human ear. It is remarkably safe, gentle and effective. It takes only 5 – 10 minutes and is capable of penetrating approximately 5 cm into the tissue.

How does it work?

The tissues alternately compress and expand because of the pressure of the sound waves. This action causes a micro massaging effect that will loosen the microscopic cell structures, break adhesion, reduce swelling, break down complex molecules and accelerate diffusion across cell membranes.
