What Is Therapeutic Ultrasound?

The term "ultrasound" refers to sound waves generated in a frequency range far above that of human hearing. While you may have heard of it in the context of diagnostic imaging, therapeutic ultrasound operates at different frequencies than diagnostic ultrasound. The therapeutic instruments usually generate frequencies of 1MHz or 3MHz. 

When ultrasonic energy comes into contact with injured or ailing human tissues, some remarkable changes can occur. The waves increase blood flow to the treatment site, warming, and relaxing the tissues while also accelerating the healing process. 

Ultrasound also causes fluids to move through and among cells more easily, a phenomenon known as streaming. Meanwhile, ultrasonic vibration appears to increase the flexibility of collagen, a component of scar tissue and other structures, so that tissues can operate more comfortably and freely.

Conditions Treated by Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound can play an important role in both acute injury treatment and chronic pain management. Chiropractors, physical therapists, and other practitioners use to treat conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Strained muscles
  • Sprained ligaments
  • Wrist pain
  • Running injuries
  • Adhesions (lumps of scar tissue that limit musculoskeletal motion)

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I've been seeing Dr. Tuttle for over 6 months, and he's been a huge help. Dr. Tuttle goes over and above - where other doctors only saw the alleviation of pain and swelling, Dr. Tuttle has helped me with my posture, core strength, breathing, and stress. I recommend him whole heartedly.

    Best of best! I had car accident last March, and I had been treated Dr. Tuttle. He was very caring and his treatment was very effective. My Shoulder pain improved dramatically and back pain is completely gone! I recommend him to everyone especially to who experience motor vehicle accident.

    I love Chiropractic Center of Raleigh Hills. I have been going there for over 4 years. It's awesome the staff is knowledgeable and accessible. Dr. Tuttle has rehabbed me through many an injury and also helped me to avoid surgery on my knee. If you are an athlete or just looking for some relief from daily aches and pains people with Dr. Tuttle's skill set are invaluable. Also, it is super convenient because they also have a sports rehab center next door and a massage therapist as well.
