Ultrasound for Feet

For many people, ultrasound therapy is an effective form of treatment for foot pain and specially heel pain. It sends sound waves to the injured, painful area. These waves move at a frequency of one million vibrations per second. They can penetrate over 2 inches into the body providing the targeted relief you are looking for.

There are many benefits to this type of treatment for heel pain. First, the penetrations from ultrasound therapy reach deep enough to affect the plantar fascia. This area is often inflamed and one of the reasons so many people suffer from foot pain. Through ultrasound therapy, the fascia tendons and surrounding tissue can be soothed. In addition, there is an increase in tissue relaxation of the muscles and ligaments. This helps stimulate blood flow and reduces swelling. Because of the increased blood flow, the tissues receive more oxygen and nutrients. In addition, waste in the tissue is removed, helping to heal the area.
