Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound is another modality that pain management specialist can use to help a patient with their pain. Ultrasound therapy is a treatment modality used by pain management specialist to treat pain conditions, and to promote tissue healing. While ultrasound therapy is not effective for all chronic pain conditions, it may help reduce your pain if you have any of the following:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Myofascial pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pain caused by scar tissue
  • Phantom limb pain
  • Sprains and strains

Ultrasound can also be helpful in acute injuries for non-thermal effects, meaning no heat is generated, but it can help increase blood flow so that inflammation or swelling can be reduced.
