Ultrasound therapy at Lewes Physiotherapy
Ultrasound is a type of electrotherapy, used effectively since the 1950’s for the treatment of tendons, ligaments, fascia, scar tissue, joint capsules, fascia, trigger points and fracture healing. It remains a popular modality of treatment due to the wide evidence base and ease of application.
Ultrasound therapy is the application of ultrasound waves (usually 1MHz or 3MHz), at specific doses (calculated by your Physiotherapist), to the affected area via a coupling gel. As the ultrasound waves pass into the tissues, it stimulates release of particular chemicals that aid the healing process. This can be effective throughout the healing process and is best thought of as a healing optimizer.
