Ultrasound therapy uses high-frequency low-intensity sound. The treatment has a diathermic effect, which alleviates pain, relaxes and decreases inflammation. The therapy softens old scar tissue and adhesions, producing a discussive effect. Ultrasound improves tissue metabolism in case of poorly healing ulcers and reduces the likeliness of joint and muscle contractures.
This is a medical procedure that can only be performed on the basis of a doctor’s referral (must be on paper).
All appointments need to be pre-booked.
Ultrasound therapy is mostly prescribed in a series of 8 to 10 treatments. A treatment lasts 3 to 5 minutes.
