Ultrasound Therapy in Palm Coast
Most people are aware of ultrasound when it comes to pregnancy, but did you know it can be used to treat a number of injuries as well? Therapeutic ultrasound has been known by physical and occupational therapists alike for decades. This safe and effective treatment is renowned for its impressive healing and regenerative characteristics. It works by vibrating inflammation molecules (water in an area where it’s not supposed to be) thus stimulating blood flow and removing damaged tissue. As a by-product, it has the effect of breaking down scar tissue, relaxing the surrounding tissue, and increasing mobility. This, combined with other therapies offered in the clinic, allows us to treat a wider range of musculoskeletal conditions that heal better, faster.

Diagnostic vs Therapeutic Ultrasound
While they both share the term “ultrasound,” the intent behind each modality is wildly different. Diagnostic Ultrasound is mainly used to “see” blood clots, kidney stones and of course babies still in utero. Therapeutic Ultrasound is different in the fact that the intent of the therapy is used to modify or change the surrounding tissue for therapeutic benefit. Chiropractic Therapeutic Ultrasound is a gentle way to help alleviate many of the body’s aches and pains.
