Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound is the application of sound waves. The sound waves are transmitted deep into your pet’s tissues, thus giving a better treatment than what can be done with hot packs or heating pads. Therapeutic ultrasound has two primary benefits, increasing blood flow and reducing swelling and edema. With the increase of blood flow an increase of oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the affected tissue along with removing cell wastes. Therapeutic ultrasound relaxes muscles, breaks down scar tissue, reduces inflammation and accelerates healing. Treatments are performed for conditions such as restricted range of motion, pain, muscle spasms, and wound healing.
