Chiropractic care has helped millions of people with painful conditions related to injury or disease. New technologies are constantly being incorporated into chiropractic care to help individuals who suffer from various neuromuscular conditions. For example, ultrasound, which is best known for its use during pregnancy, has other benefits that can be helpful in a chiropractic setting. At Chiropractic UAE, we offer this technology to help patients achieve pain relief and improved healing.
Understanding Ultrasound Therapy
Most people are familiar with ultrasound in diagnostic medicine, such as monitoring the progress of an unborn baby. However, this technology can also be used as a therapeutic measure to reduce pain or discomfort. Ultrasound therapy works by providing deep heating to tissues to increase circulation and healing. In addition, the technology also creates microscopic bubbles around tissues that cause them to expand and contract, speeding up the body’s natural healing processes. Ultrasound therapy has been used for years to help a variety of muscle problems. The treatment may also be used for neck pain, back pain, or pain from knee injuries.
Conditions Ultrasound Can Treat
Ultrasound therapy can be helpful for almost any condition that involves soft tissue injuries. Our chiropractors may employ this therapy to help a patient’s tendonitis or bursitis. It may be used to loosen muscle tightness that results as the body compensates for poor posture or a painful injury. Ultrasound therapy can also be used to help treat frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injuries, and ankle sprains.
What Happens During Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound therapy is a simple, painless process. The patient lies down, and a gel substance is applied to the area. Then, the ultrasound machine is passed over the surface of the body in a circular motion. The settings on the device allow different levels of penetration, depending on the nature of the problem. A session is done over a period of just a few minutes. During the session, you will probably feel nothing, or perhaps a slight warming or tingling sensation.
