Ultrasound is a therapeutic treatment using high-frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue injuries.

It works through sound vibrations, as fast as a million times per second, penetrate the tissues deep in the body, creating a heat response. These vibrations and heat help break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard tissue accumulations.

The gel used to conduct the sound waves is at room temperature and may momentarily feel cool to the skin when it is initially applied. Most patients feel nothing, or a pleasant and relaxing sensation below the surface of the skin.

Ultrasound treatment can usually be administered directly to the area of complaint, penetrating deep into the body. The rise in temperature increases blood flow, relaxes muscle spasms, massages damaged tissues, and speeds the healing process.


Interferential therapy is a therapeutic treatment to aid in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing.

It works by tiny amounts of electrical impulses induced into the tissues in the vicinity of the injury. Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, a low -frequency stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers to help relieve pain.

Most patients find Interferential Electro-Therapy to be extremely beneficial and describe the treatment as a faint "pins and needles" sensation.

It is most often used for pain relief and to aid in reducing the swelling of soft tissues. Ligament sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond to this treatment, helping reduce atrophy and increase blood circulation.


A Trigger Point Therapy is an area of uncontrolled muscle tightness causing tenderness which interferes with normal muscle function. This restricts normal range of motion, weakens the muscle, and may refer pain to other parts of the body.

Trigger Point Therapy works by using the hands; the skin is gently pressed to locate underlying tight bands or nodules of muscle fibers. Then using the hand, fingers, elbow, or small hand instrument, the muscle is compressed with sustained pressure to relax it.

To prepare a site, a cooling spray may be used. As pressure is applied, some patients experience temporary discomfort until the muscle relaxes. Others may feel referred pain to other parts of the body.

Trigger point therapy is a highly effective way to reduce muscle spasms and relax hyperactive muscles. This helps restore normal range of motion and promote faster healing.
