There are two main ways that ultrasound works to heal and repair damaged tissues in the body.
The first includes the thermal energy (heat) benefits and the second includes the non-thermal benefits:
Ultrasound technology can work in beneficial ways that are unrelated to its transfer of heat.
Energy that enters the body during an ultrasound treatment creates tiny gas bubbles that gather around the tissues.
These bubbles then expand and contract at a rapid pace, which is a process known as cavitation.
This can help in repairing any damaged tissue, such as scar tissue or cellulite, and loosening up the muscles.
Heat enters your deep tissues during an ultrasound treatment.
Heat helps to reduce pain, increase blood circulation, and allow for an easier stretch of the muscles.
The thermal energy produced during your ultrasound treatment can also loosen up tight muscles and tendons.
