4. Enhancing Microcirculation: Improves nutrient and waste product transport to and from cells.
Muscle and Joint Pain: Increases blood flow to the treated area, promoting healing and pain relief.
Soft Tissue Injuries: Beneficial for the treatment of sprains, strains, and other related injuries by promoting tissue healing and reducing inflammation.
Reducing Muscle Spasms: The warmth produced from continuous ultrasound can provide relief from muscle spasms.
Increasing Range of Motion: Used alongside stretching exercises to improve range of motion in joints restricted by conditions like frozen shoulder or contractures.
Breaking Down Scar Tissue: The sound waves facilitate the breakdown of fibrous scar tissue, which can improve mobility and decrease pain.
