A major part of your recovery depends on how your body responds to spinal manipulation. At Companion Chiropractic, we use various modalities in conjunction with spinal manipulation to prepare your body for the adjustment.
Ultrasound is one of those modalities. Theraputic ultrasound in chiropractic is alternating compression ad rarefaction of sound waves with a frequency of >20,000 cycles/second.
The deep heat affect helps to relax muscles, ligaments and tendons, thus allowing your body to healfaster. Increased circulation is another benefit of ultrasound, again increasing the recovery time from your injury. Chronic injuries and failed back surgeries are great candidates for ultrasound treatment.
