Therapeutic ultrasound is a minimally invasive treatment modality for most muscle and ligament injuries. Therapeutic ultrasound utilises sound waves to stimulate tissue recovery around the injured soft tissue beneath the skin's surface by increasing blood flow to the injured area.
Therapeutic ultrasound is able to:
Increase blood flow
Reduce swelling and oedema
Promote tissue healing
Our podiatrists most commonly used this adjunct treatment modality for soft tissue injuries such as Achilles tendinopathy, ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis.
