Treatment without surgery comes in many forms. One such treatment is ultrasound therapy. Ultrasound therapy promotes healing through an increase in tissue relaxation, local blood flow and breakdown of scar tissue.
Ultrasound therapy also can be used to achieve phonophoresis, which is a non-invasive way of administering medications to tissues below the skin without uncomfortable needle injections.
Using sound waves, ultrasound therapy is used to treat musculoskeletal injuries such as muscle strains, inflammation, and swelling. Your podiatrists will select the right intensity and frequency according to your presenting problems following a thorough assessment of your condition.
