Ultrasound is a deep muscle therapy that is used in the clinic to aid in the healing process. Located inside the ultrasound head is a small crystal that vibrates rapidly causing a number of changes in the muscles and joints over which it passes.

These changes include:
Dilation of blood vessels ~ this allows increased blood flow to injured areas allowing for quicker healing.
Micro-massage of deep lying muscles and joints.
Increased uptake of oxygen and removal of waste products, promotingp roper healing.
Ensures that new muscle fibers align themselves so that tissues remain strong and flexible.
