Ultrasound Therapy in Athens

Chiropractic Athens PA Ultrasound Therapy

Therapeutic Ultrasound in Athens is used in chiropractic to increase extensibility, flexibility, and to increase membrane permeability of the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues. It is also used to break up scar tissue and adhesions.
Ultrasound is a tissue heating modality which increases healing by collagen formation and scar tissue reduction. We choose our protocols based upon each patient’s specific condition and overall needs in order to restore function. Ultrasound therapy can reduce pain and increase range of motion in the joints. It is typically used before active rehabilitation exercises.


How it Works

Deep or superficial heat is generated by micro vibrations in the tissue. It uses sympathetic crystals to maintain low BNR (Beam non-uniformity ratio) rate. Our office uses ultrasound therapy to enhance overall sports performance as well for our athletes.
