Beaverton Chiropractic Ultrasound Therapy | Beaverton, Oregon

Ultrasound is a way of healing through sound waves which use an ultrasonic frequency. The therapeutic application of ultrasound waves have been used since the 1940’s and has proven to be an effective method of healing.

What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound therapy uses high frequency sound waves to penetrate muscles and loosen and soften scar tissue. During treatment, a round-headed probe is placed in direct contact with the skin. The probe emanates sound waves which penetrate between 2 and 5 centimeters into the body.

Is Ultrasound Treatment Painful?

No. Ultrasound waves create a massage-like sensation without any straining effect. Gel is used on the probe to reduce any potential friction on the skin. Heat is usually generated in the body as the sound waves are absorbed.
