Ultrasound therapy

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.

Indications for ultrasound therapy:

  • chronic and subacute joint and nerve inflammations
  • chronic pain syndromes and contractures
  • degenerative joint diseases
  • scar tissue
  • surface adhesions


Contraindications for ultrasound therapy:

  • acute inflammations
  • infectious diseases
  • malignant tumours
  • pregnancy
  • to children in the area of the bone growth plate
  • at the core of the body if the patient has a artificial cardiac pacemaker
  • deep vein inflammation


Ultrasound therapy is mostly prescribed in a series of 8 to 10 treatments. A treatment lasts 3 to 5 minutes.
