In 18 years of practice, I have groomed and fine-tuned the chiropractic principles I was taught in chiropractic school. What follows is what I believe…it is my personal, professional philosophy. -By Troy Bruesewitz, DC
Ultrasound therapy is a non-invasive treatment commonly used in chiropractic care to alleviatepain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. It involves the use of high-frequency soundwaves to penetrate deep into the affected area, providing a gentle massage-like effect that helps to improve circulation, increase flexibility, and promote tissue repair. Ultrasound therapy is particularly effective for treating soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, and contusions. It can also be used to relieve pain caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis. During an ultrasound therapy session, a small handheld device called a transducer is placed on the skin over the affected area. The transducer emits high-frequency sound waves that pass through the skin and penetrate deep into the underlying tissues. As the waves pass through the tissues, they create a gentle heating effect that helps to increase blood flow and promote healing. One of the benefits of ultrasound therapy is that it is a non-invasive and painless treatment. Most patients report feeling a slight warming sensation during the session, but there is no discomfort or pain involved. Sessions typically last between 5 and 10 minutes and can be repeated as needed.
