How it works:
Waves are generated by piezoelectric effect caused by vibration of crystals within the head of the wand. This in return leads to increased cellular metabolism (promotes healthy tissue regrowth), tissue relaxation, increased local blood flow, and scar tissue break down.
What it treats:
• Joint swelling
• Muscle spasm
• Trigger points
• Disc injury
Does it hurt?: Treatments are painless and patient may sometimes feel a ‘warming’ sensation under the head of the wand.
A typical treatment: The practitioner will apply ultrasound gel to the area being treated and will make contact using a wand while in continuous motion. Treatments will general last 5-10 minutes.
