Ultrasound therapy is a popular method of treatment that is used in physiotherapy

It is used to treat a wide range of ailments like inflammation, musculoskeletal problems and sports-related injuries. Our team of registered and health professionals at Aquafit often use this type of therapy in their treatment plans and it is always tailored to meet with each patient’s unique rehabilitation needs.

Ultrasound therapy works when high frequency sound energy is delivered through an ultrasound device that causes cells to vibrate, thereby producing comfortable heat and mechanical energy in the body. This common process is painless and promotes tissue-healing and pain-reduction when it is applied to the surface of injured areas. Ultrasound therapy reduces swelling and inflammation in the body, helping to speed up the healing of acute injuries.

Whether you are suffering from a sprained ankle or a chronic ailment such as arthritis, ultrasound therapy will enhance your body’s natural healing abilities by increasing blood flow and reducing stiffness in joints. If you are experiencing acute or chronic pain, ultrasound therapy is an excellent way to prepare your body for therapeutic exercises, a good way to reduce muscle tension, and improves range of motion. Since ultrasound therapy breaks up scar tissue and decreases stiffness, patients are better able to stretch, bear weight and move freely. This freedom to move is important when attempting to begin physical rehabilitation after sustaining an injury.

In addition to providing short-term relief, ultrasound therapy can also reverse damage and prevent the potential long-term repercussions of an injury. When your body suffers an injury, it may begin to deposit calcium in the injured area to protect it. Calcium depositions can be painful, cause stiffness and limit your range of motion. Ultrasound therapy helps reduce calcification and helps to eliminate the excess blood that pools at the site of an injury.

Ultrasound is ideal for:


• Increasing blood flow

• Relaxing muscle spasms

• Reducing nerve root irritation

• Massaging damaged tissues

• Reducing calcium deposition

• Enhancing the body’s natural healing ability
