As a therapeutic modality, ultrasound is a form of heat therapy for soft tissue injuries to minimize swelling and pain, reduce muscle spasms, and expand the range of motion. Making high frequency sound waves, ultrasound penetrates deep into an injured area, creating heat that pulls blood into the area in order to boost the mending process.
Ultrasound is administered gently with a handheld soundhead, that uses strokes or circles over the affected area. An ultrasound gel might be administered during the ultrasound therapy session. The role of an ultrasound is to speed up your healing process and reduce your pain.

But if it gives you relief then it is the right treatment for you.Research Studies
