Acute and chronic pain can sometimes feel as if it will always be a part of your life. When acute and chronic pain continues to bother you, even after several months, it may be time to seek chiropractic care for pain management and pain relief. There are loads of chiropractic treatments a chiropractor on our team might recommend, but one of the most effective is ultrasound therapy.
Ultrasound therapy is offered by us here at Denton Chiropractic Center in Denton, TX. We have a chiropractor on our team to help you find relief from pain, and ultrasound therapy is one or many tools we can use to help. If you need help for your pain or are looking for help for a loved one, consider ultrasound therapy as a first line treatment.
What Is Ultrasound Therapy?
During ultrasound therapy, our chiropractors will use a device known as a transducer to help target specific painful areas of the body. These areas of the body will then be penetrated by sound waves that emerge from the transducer. These sound waves have various characteristics depending on whether they are mechanical waves, or thermal waves.
Thermal waves are given in one continuous stream, while mechanical waves are shot directly into the soft tissue. Both have a slight warming effect on the body, with thermal waves able to warm up the muscles and provide a relaxation sensation for those in pain.
Do I Need Chiropractic Care?
You might not need chiropractic care if you are no longer suffering from acute or chronic pain. However, if you have that pain present, even if it's only a tiny amount, this can still signal signs of trouble in the body.
If you've done everything you can to treat your pain at home, it may be time to get help from a chiropractor from our practice.
How Can Our Chiropractors Help?
In addition to providing sound wave therapy, our chiropractors might also recommend treatment for pain management such as:
- Muscle stretches to help improve mobility and flexibility
- Muscle exercises to help you recover from injuries and associated pain
- Spinal adjustments if your pain is caused by a misaligned spine
- Massage therapy to reduce inflammation and promote pain relief from affected muscles
- Electrical stimulation, which also helps target soft tissues for pain management
