ULTRASOUND AND ELECTRICAL THERAPY

WHAT IS ULTRASOUND THERAPY?

Ultrasound therapeutic devices uses sound waves to create deep heat therapy that is applied to the soft tissues and joints of the patients. These waves move almost a million times per second creating a therapeutic vibration for targeted therapy care. This micro-massaging effect helps soft tissues and joints by penetrating about 3 to 4 inches deep. Ultrasound therapy can not only help reduce back pain, stiffness, and spasms, but increase blood flow and accelerate the healing process.

HOW DOES THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND WORK?

At PROSPINE CHIROPRACTIC & HEALTH we use an ultrasound emitting device that will be rolled over the affected area in order to target the pain point or injury. We use ultrasound gel to reduce friction between the device and your skin to allow for better transmission of the ultrasound waves. Despite applying deep-­tissue heat during the therapy, you typically will feel little or no heat at all.

WHAT IS ELECTRICAL STIMULATION?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation Aka E-Stim or Muscle Stim. Electrical stimulation is a great way to treat recent injuries and chronic pain to the musculoskeletal system. It goes deep in the muscles and is used to relax the muscles when they suffer from decreased mobility, flexibility, and strength. The process increases blood flow in the region, causes muscle contractions which improve strength, and eliminate pain through warmth and the blood flow. Electrical stimulation can be considered the long-term approach to pain management, muscular health and wellness.
