Therapeutic Ultrasounds in Logan, UT
We use therapeutic ultrasound to send sound waves deep into the soft tissue, clearing out lactic acid (toxic to the system). Ultrasound speeds up metabolic activity within the cell, helps break up scar tissue, and speeds healing.
Therapeutic ultrasound has been shown to cause increases in:
- healing rates
- tissue relaxation
- tissue heating
- local blood flow
- scar tissue breakdown
How Can Ultrasound Help You?
The effect of ultrasound via an increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and, according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing. The intensity or power density of the ultrasound can be adjusted depending on the desired effect. A greater power density is often used in cases where scar tissue breakdown is the goal.
