Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound therapy is a non-invasive treatment method used to aid in the healing of muscle and ligament injuries. It involves the use of sound waves to stimulate the recovery process within the injured soft tissue beneath the skin's surface.

At Manning Podiatry we commonly use therapeutic ultrasound to; 

  1. Reduce Pain and Inflammation: alleviate pain and inflammation in conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, and other soft tissue injuries.

  2. Promote Tissue Healing:  accelerate the healing process in injuries involving tendons, ligaments, and muscles by increasing blood flow to the affected area. This is beneficial for conditions like sprains and strains.

  3. Break Down Scar Tissue: help break down and reduce the formation of scar tissue in cases of chronic injuries or surgical procedures.

  4. Manage Chronic Conditions: used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for chronic conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis to provide pain relief and improve joint mobility.

  5. Neuromas: help manage neuromas, such as Morton's neuroma, by delivering targeted energy to the affected nerves to alleviate pain and discomfort.

In podiatry, therapeutic ultrasound is a versatile tool that can aid in pain management, tissue healing, and the overall improvement of foot and ankle health. Its non-invasive nature and ability to target specific areas make it a valuable treatment modality.
