We offer a cornucopia of therapeutic approaches to complement the spinal manipulations provided by our chiropractors. This is true for all of our locations in Cherry Hill, Northfield, Egg Harbor City, and Atlantic City. One service that you won't find in every chiropractic practice is ultrasound therapy. But you will find it here at Spine One Chiropractic Center, your number one place for total body healing.
What is Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound therapy taps into sound frequencies residing on the spectrum above and beyond the capacity of the human ear, for the purpose of treating musculoskeletal injuries like runner's knee or muscle strains. When using therapeutic ultrasound, we can sample many sound frequencies to select the intensity and sound frequency that is best able to treat your particular injury or area of pain. Another way to look at ultrasound therapy is as a form of vibrational therapy that uses sound waves to stimulate blood flow to areas of pain and discomfort. This form of therapy also creates the deep heat needed to reduce inflammation and swelling.
Ultrasound Therapy Is a New Addition
Over the years chiropractors have been turning to a long line of natural approaches to use in addition to spinal manipulations while avoiding the prescription of drugs. These have included applications of heat and conversely of cold; the use of water, light, massage, dietary management, and exercise. Many of these remedies are still employed today.
Ultrasound, however, is the new kid on the block, even though it was first used back in the 1940s. In addition to supplying deep heat therapy to tender soft tissues and painful joints it also does the following:
- provides a micro-massage
- calms muscle spasms
- increases blood flow to targeted areas
- speeds up the healing process
