Therapeutic Ultrasound in Jacksonville

Jacksonville Chiropractic Rehab & Wellness Center introduces Therapeutic Ultrasound, an advanced treatment modality designed to accelerate healing and alleviate pain in various musculoskeletal conditions.

What is Therapeutic Ultrasound?

Therapeutic Ultrasound in Jacksonville uses high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, to stimulate the body's soft tissues. Unlike diagnostic ultrasound, which creates internal images for monitoring health conditions, therapeutic ultrasound focuses on healing and pain relief.
This treatment modality increases the relaxation of soft tissues and local blood flow, effectively reducing inflammation and swelling. It’s particularly beneficial for ligaments, tendons, fascia, and joint capsules. Additionally, ultrasound vibrations aid in breaking down scar tissue, enhancing recovery.

Types of Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic Ultrasound comes in two forms: thermal and mechanical.
● Thermal Ultrasound: This method applies continuous sound waves to generate deep heat within body tissues, like muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The heat enhances circulation, aiding in healing, and can reduce pain by increasing tissue flexibility.
● Mechanical Ultrasound: Utilizing alternating frequencies, this form creates microscopic gas bubbles around soft tissues. These bubbles stimulate cell membranes, promoting the healing of injured ligaments, tendons, or muscles. Mechanical ultrasound is believed to expedite healing by accelerating biological processes.

Therapeutic Ultrasound is effective for a range of soft tissue injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, including:
● Bursitis● Tendonitis● Frozen shoulder● Muscle strains and tears● Joint tightness● Osteoarthritis pain● Myofascial pain● Carpal tunnel syndrome● Phantom limb pain● Scar tissue pain● Lower back and neck pain● Rotator cuff and knee meniscus tears
