Ultrasound — or ultrasonography — is an imaging technique used not just during pregnancy but also for many medical procedures. Ultrasound physical therapy is a branch of ultrasound, alongside diagnostic ultrasound and pregnancy imaging. It's used to detect and treat various musculoskeletal issues you may have including pain, tissue injury, and muscle spasms.
The procedure is generally painless and easy to do. You'll be awake during the whole process without the need for anesthetics or pain relievers. Therapeutic ultrasound has no known harmful effects when done right by your therapist. The therapy will help alleviate body pain in the affected areas. Ultrasound physical therapy is noninvasive; hence, it's safer than other methods.
