At your first appointment, your Physical Therapist will perform a thorough evaluation and develop a personalized rehabilitation treatment program with you that may include Ultrasound Therapy.
What is Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound is a treatment your physical therapist administers. It is a supplement to the primary treatment (eg, therapeutic stretching, exercise). Ultrasound can help relax tight muscles that are sore, and warms muscles and soft tissues, which increases circulation that helps healing.
Ultrasound equipment generates high-frequency sound waves that are transferred to a specific body area via a round-headed probe. The sound waves travel deep into tissue (eg. muscles), creating gentle heat.
Benefits of Ultrasound Therapy:
Ultrasound can produce many effects other than just the potential heating effect. It has been shown to cause increases in tissue relaxation, local blood flow, and scar tissue breakdown. The effect of the increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and, according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing.

What our clients say
I think coming to this place for PT was the best move I could have made, if I stayed with another PT I could have been discharged weeks ago. They never did any measurements. I think this place is a first class place. I also like the way everyone goes above and beyond to help the patient get better and the free workshops show how you do care about us. Thank you all!
