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.
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.
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
