Ultrasound uses soundwaves which pass through the skin and cause vibration of the soft tissue. The vibration then causes deep heating within the tissue. This heat can produce a number of different therapeutic effects including: Increased flexibility/extensibility of scar tissue, tendons, and joints, relief of pain and spasm from muscles, and increased blood flow to the area which can help reduce inflammation.
