Ultrasound Therapy

For many people in Hamilton, Simcoe, Jarvis, Port Dover, Caledonia, Milton, Flamborough, Burlington, Grimsby, Woodstock, Cambridge, Paris, Cayuga, Brantford, Dundas, Stoney Creek, Ancaster and Oakville who suffer from foot or ankle pain, ultrasound therapy is an effective form of treatment. Moving at a frequency of one million vibrations per second, ultrasound therapy sends energy waves to injured or painful areas, providing relief to the targeted area. Ultrasound is acoustic energy which occurs on a frequency above the human hearing range, and is delivered to the body via an ultrasound machine, and a gel applied to the skin in order to help the waves penetrate over two inches into the body’s inflamed areas. Ultrasound therapy’s benefits include:

  • Delivers oxygen and nutrients to tissues
  • Softens fibrous tissue and scar tissue, helping to heal the affected area
  • Promotes normal function of the affected area
  • Increases relaxation of the muscles and ligaments
  • Stimulates blood flow
  • Reduces swelling and muscle spasms

When used alongside traditional foot and ankle treatment methods, regular treatments of ultrasound therapy can help prevent foot or ankle pain from reappearing. This combination allows for overall better treatment, providing quicker pain relief and healing. Our ultrasound therapy is ideal for the following foot or ankle conditions:
