UltraSound for Pain

High frequency sound waves are directed to the sore area causing the body tissues (molecules) to vibrate. This changes to heat in the deeper tissues helping to flush the area and bring in a new supply of nutrient and oxygen rich blood. I’ve had this treatment and it feels wonderful, but the effects did not last for very long.

I have uncovered very little evidence to suggest Ultrasound is an effective treatment for spinal pain. All I can tell you is when I had Heated Ultrasound and it really loosened up my muscles which felt great. I had Ultrasound at another facility with a cold gel and it did nothing. So I believe it was the heat that made me feel better.
