Ultrasound Therapy for Car Accident Injuries

Ultrasound therapy for car accident injuries utilizes ultra-high frequency sound waves (beyond range of human hearing) which penetrates, vibrates, and heats the tissues at several different levels simultaneously.

Benefits Include:

  • Decreases pain, muscle spasms, and swelling.
  • Accelerates soft tissue and bone repair;
  • Increases creation of proteins in the body.
  • Increases the circulation of oxygen and the nutrients to, and removal of inflammatory and waste products from, the tissue.
  • Increases extensibility of tendons, joint capsules, and fascia which increases range of motion.

Drink lots and lots of water!

With just a little therapy time and a lot of water drinking, you can feel better faster!

Ultrasound Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

What is ultrasound therapy?

Ultrasound therapy is a method that uses sound waves to treat various types of pain and inflammation. It works by stimulating tissue beneath the skin’s surface, which then increases tissue relaxation and blood flow, breaks down scar tissue, and reduces swelling and inflammation. Ultrasound therapy is applied using a rounded transducer. The transducer traces over targeted areas covered by a translucent gel that acts as a conductor.

What does ultrasound therapy treat?

Ultrasound therapy can treat a variety of physical issues that can occur after a car accident, including but not limited to:

  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Sprains
  • Wounds
  • Knee injury
  • Bone fracture
  • Pulled, torn, or strained muscles, ligaments, and tendons

Is ultrasound therapy safe?

Yes, ultrasound therapy is very safe! However, there are some instances when it should not be used. Therapy should not be used if the patient is pregnant, has a cardiac pacemaker, has cancerous conditions, or is under 18 and has not received recommendation from a physician.

Will I experience any pain during ultrasound therapy?

No, you should not experience any pain at all. Some patients may feel a slight warmth or tingling in the treated area. If you do experience pain, tell your therapist immediately, as this is extremely uncommon.

Ultrasound therapy, also called therapeutic ultrasound or focused ultrasound, is a noninvasive treatment method used to relieve pain, improve circulation, and promote tissue healing. Typically a physical therapist, or a professional who helps individuals manage pain and improve mobility, administers this treatment.
