Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a non-invasive treatment administer by Dr. Gardner in our office. It can be used to treat various conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • neck pain
  • chronic back pain
  • myofascial pain syndrome
  • osteoarthritis
  • bone breaks
  • painful bone cancer
  • nerve pain
  • pain due to non-cancerous tumors or abnormal growths
  • tendinitis
  • bursitis

How does it work?

Ultrasound therapy uses a wand with a small crystal within the tip. An electric signal is sent through the wand. The electric signal resonates with the crystal tip, causing the crystal to vibrate rapidly, creating piezoelectric waves, which ultimately emit from the wand as ultrasound waves. The ultrasound waves are able to penetrate through the skin and create a vibrating effect deep in the tissue. The vibration of the tissue causes a warming sensation and increases blood flow. The increase in blood flow promotes healing and cell restoration. In addition, the vibration creates a massage effect on the tissue, helping to loosen tight muscles and break down scar tissue.
