Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves and it is administered in the region of soft tissue injuries.
The sound waves, some moving with a frequency of 1,000,000 waves per second, penetrate deep into the tissues. The vibrations and heat break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard tissue accumulations as well as soft tissue swelling.
Dr. Belove or an assistant will put a cool gel on the area. This gel will get warm as the treatment starts. Â During the treatment most patients either feel nothing, or a pleasant and relaxing sensation below the skin's surface.
The treatment can be administered directly to the affected area and it penetrates deeply. Blood flow increases allowing muscle spasms to relax, swelling is dispersed, nerve endings are soothed and the â€œmicro-massageâ€ effect accelerate the healing process.
Ultrasound stimulates healing without irritation and enhances the body's natural healing ability. It is effective in treating calcium deposition, speeds metabolism and improves blood flow and reduces nerve root irritation.
