Ultrasound waves create the effect of deep heat in your muscles and joints.

The deep heat of ultrasound increases the blood flow to the area being treated. This blood brings nutrients and carries away waste. This helps to promote healing and decreases swelling. It is used to provide deep heating to soft tissues in the body. These tissues include muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments. Ultrasound in physical therapy is not to be confused with diagnostic ultrasound, which is an ultrasound that is used to see the inside of the body, such as checking on a fetus during pregnancy
