Common "Ultrasound Physiotherapy" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Ultrasound Physiotherapy

The therapeutic effects of ultrasound are being used in tissue healing. It enhances the rate of healing and reduces pain upon use on the injured site. Its therapeutic effects can be thermal or non-thermal based. In thermal mode, the therapy works by providing deep heat to the tissues and regulate blood supply. In non-thermal therapy, the ultrasound causes cavitation (expansion and contraction of gas bubbles around the tissue), speeding healing. Ultrasound physiotherapy is used in treating joint tightness, tendonitis, shoulder pain, and ligament injuries. It improves the range of motion.
