Chiropractic Ultrasound Therapy In Towson MD

Chiropractic Towson MD Ultrasound Therapy

Most people know of ultrasound in the context of monitoring a pregnancy, but we also use ultrasound in our Towson chiropractic office because it has impressive healing and regeneration capabilities. We can use ultrasound therapy to stimulate blood flow, which helps to decrease inflammation, increase tissue relaxation, and break down any internal scar tissue so that patients can have greater mobility.

This process also speeds up the rate of healing of any musculoskeletal injuries that patients may have. For the best chiropractic ultrasound therapy in Towson and to start feeling better faster, call our office today at 410-296-7700 or click here to schedule your appointment.


Chiropractic Ultrasound Therapy In Towson MD

Ultrasound is a therapy that can be utilized to handle injuries related to joints, muscle spasms, as well as most soft tissues. While it shares the same name, this ultrasound is not the same as the type of ultrasound utilized diagnostically to screen internally in the body. This ultrasound creates small sound waves that in effect vibrate and massage soft tissues and muscle. These sound waves do an excellent job of facilitating the body's healing process in addition to decreasing scar tissue formation.

Certain ultrasounds also create a heating effect to help relax the muscles or tightness in the body. This heat combined with the overall features of the ultrasound help to start the healing process at the most basic cellular level speeding up your road to recovery. One of the great things about ultrasound therapy is that it feels really good while it relieves pressure and pain.


How Does Chiropractic Ultrasound Therapy Work?

Your therapist will begin by applying gel to the ultrasound wand or directly to your skin. This gel is used to help conduct the sound waves evenly and provide an evenly distributed treatment. The therapist then moves the applicator wand in small circles around the target area. Each treatment usually lasts from five to ten minutes.

You may feel a warm, tingling sensation but it’s also normal to feel nothing during this treatment. As the sound waves hit the deeper tissues of your body, they stimulate cell membranes which creates the therapeutic healing response. In addition to this, chiropractic ultrasound therapy breaks down scar tissue and increases blood flow. All of this combines to increase healing in the affected area which makes ultrasound therapy a great option for speeding up slow-healing or chronic issues.
