ultrasoundQ: What is Therapeutic Ultrasound?

A: Unlike diagnostic ultrasonography or "ultrasound" which is used to discern problems deep in the body without breaking the surface of the skin, by bouncing and measuring high frequency sound waves to create audio "images", "Therapeutic Ultrasound" is used to apply deep heat to an affected body part.


Q: How does Therapeutic Ultrasound work?

A: Therapeutic Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves, well beyond the range of human hearing, which cause molecules in the tissues to vibrate, producing heat and mechanical energy. This deep tissue heating modality reaches underlying tissues as deep as 1 to 5 centimeters, and it is used to treat musculo-skeletal injuries, back and joint conditions, limited range of motion, soft tissue injuries, and chronic conditions.


Q: Why is Therapeutic Ultrasound used in our office?

A: We use Therapeutic Ultrasound in our office when the need for a much deeper degree of heat penetration is required. Since the hot packs that we use are best suited for more superficial soft tissue applications, Therapeutic Ultrasound assists in deep back and joint conditions.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
