Trying to find fast and effective pain relief can be challenging especially if you want to avoid the dangers and uncertainty of drugs and surgery. That’s why the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists offer pain reducing therapeutic ultrasound in our clinic. We know how much pain limits your ability to participate in all your life’s activities and will work hard to get your pain alleviated as quickly as possible. Therapeutic ultrasound is just another way that we focus on helping to reduce your pain and get you back to moving the way you should so you can do all the things you need to do and be as effective as possible. Often times patients come to see us when they are in severe or extreme pain and usually the pain is due to muscle spasms or inflammation. Therapeutic ultrasound is something that can help alleviate that pain rapidly and get the you on the road to recovery.

Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment modality used by the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists that is used to help improve circulation and decrease inflammation. It is also effective at reducing pain and helping to break up scar tissue in tendons ligaments and muscle. Therapeutic ultrasound can create a heating effect in muscles that are spasmed or have knots in them to help the muscles relax and improve the circulation in the tissue so that the body can heal the tissue.

Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to vibrate the tissue. This vibration when placed in areas of scar tissue or tendonitis can act like a jackhammer on cement. Now that might sound painful but you will not experience any discomfort when therapeutic ultrasound is used. Instead, you may experience a comfortable warming feeling that most patients describe as very relaxing. What the ultrasound waves do is help to vibrate the tissue and break up the scarring that may be present and may be causing pain as well as preventing healing. So just like a jackhammer uses vibration to break up concrete, ultrasound uses vibration to break up scar tissue. This allows the body to heal the tissue that has previously been damaged and scarred.

There are certain conditions treated by your ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists that respond very well to therapeutic ultrasound. Therapeutic ultrasound is effective at treating tendonitis conditions anywhere in the body including the hand and wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee, ankle, and foot. The treatment works very well to help increase circulation in tendons. The reason this is important is because tendons have a very poor blood supply to them and cannot heal well. In the body when blood supply is low, like it is in tendons and ligaments the body is unable to heal these tissues effectively. Ultrasound not only helps to remove toxins and waste buildup in those tissues to allow the body to heal but, it can also stimulate blood flow to the area which stimulates healing in those tissues.

The ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists also use ultrasound to help reduce muscle knots and muscle spasms that are common when people are experiencing neck and back pain. By applying ultrasound over the areas of muscle knots and muscle spasms the body is able to increase the circulation to those tissues which helps alleviate pain and relax the muscle spasms and reduce the muscle knots. This is important to not only reduce pain but also to help stimulate healing and relax the muscle tissue which helps the body restore normal movement. When we can move better, the tissues in the body can begin healing and the patient can begin recovering and improving their function more quickly.

Another reason the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists uses ultrasound is to help more acute injuries such as sprains and strains and, even accidents and falls. Therapeutic ultrasound used in these conditions helps to decrease pain that comes from inflammation. It also helps to decrease your swelling and increase your healing time by helping your body to get rid of toxins that come from the inflammation and swelling of damaged tissue. If you have suffered an injury then it is crucial that you call and get treated as quickly as possible. The reason this is so important is because the sooner you begin treatment in an area that has been injured the greater the chance your body is able to heal that area. So, your recovery will be much more rapid and much more complete.

Believe it or not but the ultrasound used by your ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists can also be used to help things like sinus congestion. When you have sinus congestion or even sinus infection the pain that is present is due to inflammation. This pressure that forms in your sinuses can be extremely painful. Therapeutic ultrasound can help to break up your congestion and improve the inflammation in your sinuses which allows for drainage. This is important because when your sinuses can drain properly your tissues lining your sinus cavities can then decrease the inflammation. Then your body can begin to heal and fight the infection which allows you to recover more rapidly.

When you are treated by the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists with therapeutic ultrasound to help treat your condition you will feel that your pain is reduced more quickly and, any swelling that may have been present in the area also reduces more rapidly. It is important to reduce the pain and swelling as quickly as we can so that we can start to increase the movement in the area. Increasing movement without pain ultimately leads to faster and more complete healing and helps you to begin the road to recovery much more quickly.
