Ultrasound is a modality utilizing high or low frequency sound waves transmitted to the surrounding soft tissue and vasculature. These sound waves penetrate the injured muscles to cause deep tissue/muscle warming. Tissue warming promotes tissue relaxation and making it beneficial in the treatment of muscle tightness and spasms. The warming effect of the sound waves also causes vessel vasodilatation increasing circulation to the area that assists in healing of injured soft tissue.
