Therapeutic ultrasound is used to reduce the build-up of scar tissue, promote bone healing improve muscle and joint mobility, as well as provide pain relief to the pet.
Therapeutic Ultrasound for Canine Rehabilitation
The faster tissue healing properties of Ultrasound not only improve mobility, but also enhance soft tissue wellness.
Therapeutic ultrasound works by delivering thermal and non-thermal waves to a specific area in the muscle, bone or joint. Various levels of wave intensity are used depending on the specific type of recovery or treatment needed, the thermal and non-thermal waves causing mechanical stimulation which is what promotes tissue healing.
Therapeutic ultrasound may also be used in a process called phonophoresis, which uses the ultrasound waves to help absorb topical agents or anti-inflammatories medications into the body.
Therapeutic ultrasound is used to loosen or breakdown scar tissue following an injury or surgery.
