What is Ultrasound?
Ultrasound is a treatment modality used by physiotherapists in the management of musculoskeletal injuries. It stimulates the repair of soft tissue and promotes healing in the muscles, tendons, joint and ligaments. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to raise the temperature of the deep tissue around the injured region. Special ultrasound gel is used to ensure maximal contact between the treatment head and the surface of the skin for maximal benefit.
