This can be beneficial to treat many musculoskeletal injuries.

How ultrasound therapy is used for sports physical therapy

Sports therapy is a type of physical therapy that helps you heal from sports-related injuries.  One of the methods that our team at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy chooses for this type of therapy is the ultrasound technique.

Ultrasound therapy produces sound waves that create friction-based heat deep inside your body’s tissues. This can promote healing and relaxation in your injured areas.

Ultrasound therapy can also help your injury by producing a vibrating movement called cavitation. This involves the creation and movement of tiny gas bubbles around your injury. Cavitation helps create a gentle movement in damaged tissues that may not be reachable by other means.

Ultrasound techniques may be used by our team to help you with a variety of sports injuries. These injuries may include conditions such as:

  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Bone fractures

By using ultrasound therapy to treat these and other injuries that you may have sustained playing sports, the Excel Sports and Physical Therapy team may be able to reduce the time that you spend in your sports therapy and get you back on the field faster.
