Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment that has been used by therapists over the last 50 years to treat soft tissue injuries. We offer this on site in our North Swindon clinic”
What are the Effects of Therapeutic Ultrasound?
The effects of therapeutic ultrasound are well recognised, and it is particularly useful in the acute stage of an injury.
Thermal Effect:
As the ultrasound waves pass from the ultrasound treatment head into the skin they cause the vibration of the surrounding tissues, particularly those that contain collagen. This increased vibration leads to the production of heat within the tissue. In most cases this cannot be felt by the patient themselves. However, this increase in temperature may cause an increase in the extensibility of structures such as ligaments, tendons, scar tissue and fibrous joint capsules. It also helps to reduce pain and muscle spasm and promote the healing process.
Effects on the Inflammatory and Repair Processes:
One of the greatest benefits of ultrasound therapy is that reduces the healing time of certain soft tissue injuries.
Ultrasound may also stimulate the production of more collagen- the main protein component in soft tissue such as tendons and ligaments. Hence ultrasound may accelerate the phase of tissue healing.
Ultrasound is thought to improve the extensibility of mature collagen and so can have a positive effect to on fibrous scar tissue which may form after an injury
