Chiropractic Ultrasound Therapy
At J.S.G Chiropractic our ultrasound therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions that lead to muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to deliver deep heat to the treated tissues. The treatments aim to help reduce stiffness, swelling, and pain, increase circulation, and promote pain-free movement. Ultrasound therapy may be used alone, but in most cases it is used in conjunction with our other therapies to enhance effectiveness. Ultrasound therapy is a painless procedure, and many people find it relaxing, and everyone finds it helpful.
What is ultrasound therapy and its uses? Ultrasound therapy has been utilized as a treatment for sports injuries over the past fifty years. Ultrasonic waves of a greater frequency which is not audible for the ear are made by ways of mechanical vibration in the metal procedure head of the machine. The treatment head is moved on the skin surface in the place of the injury transferring the energy in to the tissues. If sound waves arrive in to contact with oxygen it makes a dissipation of the waves and hence a different ultrasound gel is kept on the skin to make sure optimum contact between the skin surface and the treatment head and to give a means by with the sound waves can go. Ultrasound can be used under water that is also a way for ultrasound waves to pass through. The impacts of ultrasound therapy are being disputed.
There is little proof to describe how it creates a therapeutic result in affected tissue. When the ultrasound waves moves from the treatment head in to the surface of the skin they create the vibration of the nearby tissues, especially those that has collagen. This raised vibration results to the generation of heat with in the tissue. In most of the cases this cannot be thought by the patient. The raise in temperature may create a rise in the program of structures like tendons, ligaments, fibrous joint pills, scar tissue. Further heating may assist to lessen pain and muscle spasm, boost the healing procedure. One of the best expected benefits of ultrasound therapy is that this therapy is considered to decrease the healing time of some soft tissue damages.
Ultrasound is considered to speed up the common resolution time of the inflammatory procedure by attracting lot of cells of the spot of injury. This may create a rise in blood flow that can be helpful in the sub-acute time of tissue damage. When blood flow may be raised it is not suggested to avail therapeutic ultrasound therapy quickly after injury. Ultrasound may stimulate the generation of plenty of collagen that is the key protein part in soft tissue like ligaments and tendons therefore ultrasound may speed up the proliferative of tissue remedial.
It is felt to enhance the program of mature collagen and hence can get a positive impact on the fibrous scar tissue that may make after an injury. Ultrasound therapy dosage can be different either in frequency or intensity of the ultrasound beam. Just talking lower frequency usage offers a higher depth of penetration and hence is availed if the injured tissue is doubted to be immensely situated. Equally doses of higher frequency are availed for structures that are near to the skin surface. As ultrasound is considered to damage the tissue repair procedure and therefore it is highly likely that it may impact diseased tissue in the unusual fashion. More over the proposed raise in blood may also perform in spreading malignancies on the body. Do not avail if the patient suffers from acute infections, pregnant and some more.
