Ultrasound is a method of stimulating tissue using very high frequency sound waves. This has both
thermal and non-thermal effects in the treated area. The heat produced during treatment delivers all
the known benefits of thermotherapy, like increased blood flow and reduced chronic inflammation.
Additionally, due to the special properties of ultrasound, treatment can also be delivered at significant
depths of 5+ cm, effectively reaching even areas that other modalities can’t. In addition, non-thermal
effects like stable cavitation (formation of microscopic vibrating gas bubbles) are thought to be able to
directly stimulate cell membranes, enhancing cell repair effects.
