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.
