-  Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound is a non-invasive therapy which has been safely used in treatment of many muscular and skeletal conditions for many decades. There are two categories of ultrasound devices, diagnostic and therapeutic. A therapeutic ultrasound device is capable of emitting ultrasonic waves of high frequency (more than a million times per second) which could penetrate the body up to 2 inches. These high frequency waves could disperse inflammatory fluids (thus reducing inflammation), break up adhesion fibers and muscle spasm. In a chiropractic office a therapeutic ultrasound is utilized to provide relief for many conditions such as:

  • Muscle spam and tightness
  • Joint pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Sprain and strain injuries
  • Tendinitis
  • Neuritis and radiculitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee and shoulder pain

Dr. Pourshadi has been very successful in treating the above conditions through chiropractic care and in many cases in conjunction with ultrasound therapy. If you have any questions or would like to know more about ultrasound and how it can help your condition please contact our office.
