Ultrasound + Phonophoresis

Ultrasound Therapy and Phonophoresis in Chicago, IL

Why Is Ultrasound Used in Chiropractic & Physical Therapy?

One might wonder how something like ultrasound can bring tangible, benefits to Chiropractic and Physical Therapy treatments. After all, Chiropractic and Physical Therapy is the practice of helping people heal and maintain health.

The idea of using ultrasound therapy in Chiropractic and Physical Therapy uses sound waves to reduce inflammation, spasm, break up scar tissue, and promote healthy tissue metabolism. Ultrasound therapy sedates and increases metabolic flow to tissue while increasing cell membrane permeability.

This procedure is non-invasive and can be used for acute and chronic conditions, inflammation, tightness, as well as injury to soft tissue.


Phonophoresis uses ultrasound to push various botanicals and supplemental ingredients into the cellular membrane to accelerate healing and encourages tissues to absorb these supplementals at a deeper level. Ultrasound therapy with phonophoresis can lessen recovery time and improve the body’s healing.

Although the range of conditions is wide, some common ailments treated with phonophoresis include tendonitis, carpal tunnel, bursitis, sprains, ligament injuries, strains, arthritis, and many more.

"… Felt right for the first time in 12 years"

My back and groin pull were very bad. I saw the team trainers/docs and many outside docs. It affected my skating. I thought my career might be over. Then I saw Dr. Clendenin and his team at the Chicago Chiropractic & Sports Injury Centers. My back and groin have felt right for the first time in twelve years and my stride is so much better.

"Dr. Clendenin and his team fixed me…"

My Iron Man pitching record was at risk and my trainers were unable to fix the problem. Dr. Clendenin and his team fixed me right away, my record continued and I pitched a winner against the Sox. Thanks to the great team at the Chicago Chiropractic & Sports Injury Centers.
