Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound, different from diagnostic ultrasound, uses sound waves to create a deep heat therapy. A type of micro-massage is created when the sound waves produced by the device are applied to soft tissues and joints. This type of treatment can be especially effective in sprains, strains, and both acute and chronic issues.

Duncan Chiropractic Group uses ultrasound technology in our Brighton, MI office for multiple reasons. First, because the heat produced penetrates as deep as 3-4 inches, relaxing deep muscles. Secondly, the heat generated helps to speed healing and reduce inflammation. Finally, the vibrating of tissues causes cell membranes to be stimulated, promoting the repair of the cells in areas that are inflamed.
