Ultrasound Therapy in Fort Myers

Chiropractic Fort Myers FL Woman Smiling

Our chiropractor has helped many patients with ultrasound therapy in Fort Myers. Ultrasound therapy uses high-frequency sound waves to treat a variety of deep soft tissue injuries. Ultrasound is used for soft tissue damage in order to decrease swelling, muscle spasm, pain and increase ranges of motion.


How Does Ultrasound Therapy Work?

Ultrasound is applied using a round handheld soundhead that is placed direct skin contact with ultrasound sound. The purpose of ultrasound therapy is to speed up healing time, reduce swelling, increase blood flow, decrease pain, and reduce joint stiffness.

Ultrasound therapy treatment can take from 3-5 minutes for an acute injury or longer for a chronic injury when scar tissue is present.


What Is Ultrasound Therapy Used For?

Ultrasound can also be helpful at diagnosing minor fractures that may not be obvious on X-ray due to too much inflammation. A hairline fracture may produce pain as sound waves are trapped between the two parts of the break. When placing the ultrasound head over the injuries area and patient pain increases, then there could be a possibility of a fracture.

We refrain from using ultrasound where there are malignancies, metal implants, acute infection, vascular abnormalities and abdomen of pregnant women.
