SALT LAKE CITY ULTRASOUND TREATMENT
LEARN HOW ULTRASOUND CAN HELP YOU AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT
Ultrasound is a form of diagnostic imaging primarily known for its use in checking the status of a fetus during pregnancy. However, ultrasound can also be a valuable tool when treating injuries from a car accident or other type of personal injury. Patients who suffer from muscle pain have had great success with ultrasound treatment administered by medical professionals experienced in treating personal injuries.
Ultrasound therapy is one of the many treatments for victims of personal injuries offered at P.I. HELP in Salt Lake City. Our team has extensive experience treating victims of car accidents, slip-and-falls, truck accidents, and other types of personal injuries.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
During a diagnostic ultrasound, a wand connected to the ultrasound device is rubbed over the area that needs to be examined (for example, the stomach, if used to examine a fetus during pregnancy). This wand releases high-frequency sound waves that are released into the examination area and fed back into the ultrasound machine. A computer can use this information to create a live-feed image of the area examined by the ultrasound.
As it turns out, the high-frequency sound from an ultrasound can also be used to stimulate damaged muscle tissue. When the muscles are stimulated, they have an easier time breaking down adhesions and restoring blood flow. This can be very useful as a treatment for whiplash and other car accident-related injuries.
Benefits of ultrasound therapy can include:
- Decreased pain
- Decreased swelling
- Less muscle spasm
- Improved blood flow
- Increased range of motion
