Ultrasound has been a part of clinical practice since the 1950s, and still remains a popular and evidenced intervention for a range of clinical problems. Ultrasound Therapy uses sound waves to
treat medical problems, especially musculoskeletal problems like inflammation from injuries (sprains, tendinitis, bursitis). It is a method of stimulating the tissue beneath the skin’s surface using very
high-frequency sound waves, between 800,000 Hz and 2,000,000 Hz. Ultrasound Therapy is applied using a transducer that comes in direct contact with the patient’s skin. The potential benefits of this therapy include an increase in the blood flow to the treated area, decrease in pain and gentle massage of muscles in the treated area.
