What are the different types of treatments?

There are two main ways that this therapy works to heal and repair damaged tissues in the body.

The first includes the thermal energy (heat) benefits and the second includes the non-thermal benefits:

What do ultrasound treatments look like?

The technology behind ultrasound treatments involves the use of sound waves.

These sound waves are used to treat conditions affecting the muscles, ligaments, and bones by creating vibrations that generate heat.

When the tissues vibrate, friction is produced at the molecular level, which causes the temperature of the tissues to increase.

While heating packs can be effective in warming up an affected area, they are unable to reach the tissues in the same way that ultrasound technology can.

When an ultrasound treatment is being conducted, our Ocean Pines, MD physical therapist will generously put gel on the surface of the ultrasound applicator, in order to minimize friction and promote the transmission of the sound waves.

These waves are then absorbed by your tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues.
