I'm a happier person since meeting Dr. Ward! I have had extreme lower back pain for a couple of years and have done everything to try to alleviate it. I was told that it was everything from a groin muscle pull to my lower back starting to curve the wrong direction... but at my first visit to Dr. Ward she knew right away what the problem was and put a plan into action to help me.

Therapies

Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy uses high-energy sound waves (those above the range we hear) to help ease painful joints and muscles. The sound waves generate heat as they go deep into the muscles and soft tissue. The deep heat causes changes in the injured tissue, helping it heal.

Ultrasound treatment is used for chronic muscle, overuse, and soft tissue injuries. It is used on deep soft tissue, muscle bruises, and scar tissue. It may be used to treat conditions such as musculoskeletal injuries, arthritis and fibromyalgia. Often it is used along with a physical therapy program of stretches and exercises.

Ultrasound is also used for:
  • Stimulates healing without causing irritation
  • Speeds metabolism and improves circulation
  • Breaks up and softens scar tissue and adhesions
  • Reduces chronic inflammation or swelling
  • Reduces irritation to nerve roots
  • Enhances the body's natural healing process

Warnings and Contraindications Ultrasound therapy is generally safe. However, it does carry some risks. Patients are advised to consult with their physician before receiving therapeutic ultrasound. At Center for Chiropractic & Wellness we will not administer ultrasound or any therapy without a chiropractic recommendation from one of our practitioners.

Contraindications for Ultrasound include:
  • People with pacemakers
  • Pregnancy
  • Use over the skull, eyes, heart, or reproductive organs
  • People with Cancer

Therapeutic ultrasound differs from diagnostic ultrasound, which uses less-intense sound waves to create images of internal structures. Please do not confuse this therapy with imaging technologies.
