Benefits of Ultrasounds for Chiropractic Health chiropractic health

What Are Ultrasounds for Chiropractic Health? 

An ultrasound uses sound waves at a specific frequency. These special ultrasonic waves can be harnessed to provide healing heat to muscle tissues. This heat increases blood flow to the affected muscles, relaxes tight areas, and reduces the inflammation that commonly makes back and neck pain difficult to treat. Completely painless, this therapy is delivered at your chiropractor’s office with the help of a cool conduction gel, just as if you were receiving an examination on your neck, chest, or abdomen. Patients enjoy receiving this part of their chiropractic regimen for its relaxing and curative properties. 

Why Is It Used at Chiropractic Offices? 

This treatment is used at chiropractic offices to coax tight, inflamed, and painful muscles into a state of rejuvenation and ease. Combined with chiropractic manipulation, stretching, and massage, ultrasound therapy is known to calm both acute and chronic back and neck issues and even helps break down scar tissue that other procedures can’t mend. It is a valuable aid for chiropractors and their teams to provide the most effective care plans possible and provides patients with reprieve and comfort. 

Ultrasonic treatment can help you heal your neck or back. If you want to learn more about ultrasound therapy for your chiropractic health, call North Pole Chiropractic in North Pole, AK, at (907) 488-1885. To explore their services for automobile injuries and workman’s comp, visit their website
