Ultrasound is a therapeutic treatment using high frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue. Ultrasound waves 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. Ultrasound treatment can usually be administered directly to the area of complaint. The rise in temperature, increases blood flow, relaxes muscle spasms, massages damaged tissues, and speeds the healing process.
Therapeutic Ultrasound can be used as a treatment of a blocked mammary duct. It is also quick and effective non-pharmacological treatment for the inflammatory symptoms of mastitis.
Therapeutic Ultrasound can also be used in the treatment of Capular Contracture, a conditoin that comes about through the development of too much scar tissue forming around an implant leaving it constricted, altering the shape of the implant, or becoming hard.
