Ultrasonic Wave Technology for the Future of Chiropractic Care in Crofton and Millersville, MD
Ultrasonic wave technology is a futuristic sounding name for the simple power of sound vibrations. These sound waves occur outside the spectrum of human hearing, but the vibrations are an advanced and effective form of therapy when directed in a close range of the body. Today, it’s increasingly used across medical disciplines, including orthopedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology, and even veterinary medicine as a nonsurgical and noninvasive pain relief technique.
What Is Ultrasonic Wave Technology?
Acoustic waves generated by ultrasonic wave technology carry a high-energy pulse to painful areas of the body, including muscle, joints, and bones. The energy pulse promotes the body’s own regeneration and healing process among tendons and soft tissues, as well as loosens up constricted muscles. Ultrasonic wave technology interacts with soft tissue to boost the medical effects of accelerated internal repair and cell growth, analgesia, and mobility restoration. It is most commonly recommended for patients who need to:
- Reduce Chronic Inflammation
- Stimulate Collagen Production
- Disperse Pain and Tight Trigger Points
To address pain without surgery, the Effective Integrative Healthcare team uses this kind of therapy for patients experiencing the following conditions or symptoms:
- Heel Spurs
- Hip and Joint Pain
- Painful Shoulders and Back
- Tennis Elbow
- And More
How Is Ultrasonic Wave Technology Administered?
To create the acoustic wave pulse, a small piston-like device is placed against the body and compressed air shoots a high-energy blast of kinetic energy from the end of the applicator into the body. The process is not painful or uncomfortable, as the compressed air leaves no mark or bruising. You may feel a light tapping as if someone is gently flicking a finger against your skin. Ultrasonic Wave Technology can be delivered while you are fully clothed and sitting or lying down comfortably.
Does Wave Therapy Work?
In many cases, ultrasonic wave treatments can replace painkillers, avoid surgery, and restore full mobility for patients suffering from a wide variety of acute or chronic conditions causing pain. Among a study of professional athletes, wave therapy created a positive result for 84% of the patients who tried it, with the positive effects lasting for up to three months.
