Ultrasound in La Crosse

Ultrasound on kneeTherapeutic ultrasound is one of many healing therapies we offer our patients at M.Y. Life Health Center. Using a particular, inaudible frequency of sound waves, this treatment can help with various soft tissue injuries and conditions.

How It Works

Using a handheld device placed on your skin, we direct the high-frequency sound waves into the affected area of your body. These sound waves generate heat deep in the tissues, and this thermal effect increases blood flow to the region. Increased circulation brings additional healing nutrients to the area, promoting healing in muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Depending on your specific situation, this therapy can last from 3 to 5 minutes. During this time, we’ll move the device over the entire affected area.

You may feel some warmth in the area we’re working on, but the therapy is not painful.

What Are Some Benefits?

Ultrasound can be effective for chronic pain, muscle stiffness or soreness, as well as acute inflammation because of things like sprains and strains. Some common conditions we recommend this therapy for include

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Joint pain or stiffness
  • Ligament tears or other injuries
  • Shoulder issues such as frozen shoulder
  • Tendonitis

Combined With Other Therapies

We often combine ultrasound with chiropractic adjustments. Your adjustment addresses the joints stuck or misaligned, while ultrasound helps heal the soft tissues around that joint. This comprehensive approach helps the body heal more completely, allowing your adjustments to hold longer.

Ultrasound is also particularly effective in combination with electrical muscle stimulation (e-stim). This combination provides the pain-relieving effects of e-stim along with the improved circulation effects of ultrasound. We recommend this combo for any type of chronic pain, ligament tears, muscle soreness, or stiffness and tension in any area.
