Did you know that ultrasound is used in physiotherapy? Therapeutic ultrasound provides deep-heating effects to tendons, ligaments, and muscles, to increase blood circulation to these tissues, helping the body’s healing process and decreasing the pain. It can be used to treat swelling or scar tissue, and to increase the flexibility of tight tendons and muscles to improve range of motion. You will likely not feel much sensation during the treatment, but if it is the right treatment option for you, and combined with other physiotherapy exercises recommended by your APR therapist, it may improve your well-being significantly.
