Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic Ultrasound Machine used at Glow Physio

Glow Physio offers Therapeutic Ultrasound using the Dynatron Dynatronics Solaris 709. This non-invasive technology has been around since the 1940s and is still in use in clinical practice because it has been proven to be both safe and effective. Because it is a well-established treatment technique, studies have occurred validating its use in a number of specific pelvic health and postpartum conditions.

Therapeutic Ultrasound is vital for treating scar tissue, plaques, and inflammation. It works by sending sound waves into the tissues, causing vibration at the molecular level. This turns into heat energy, which has potent anti-inflammatory effects. The depth of the sound waves is customizable for each individual. It is a painless treatment technique that speeds up the healing process in a way that is unlike any other modality. 

Glow Physio uses Therapeutic ultrasound to alleviate chronic pain and promote tissue repair. Some of the purposes of this technology are as follows:

  • Breaking up and softening scar tissue
  • Reducing inflammation and swelling
  • Promoting muscle relaxation
  • Relieving chronic pain
  • Enhancing the natural healing process

What To Expect During A Therapeutic Ultrasound Treatment

The depth of the Ultrasound waves is set to target the affected tissue. A gel is then applied to the targeted area. The transducer head gradually slides back and forth along your skin. This treatment commonly lasts 5-10 minutes. The specific number of treatments depends on the evidence-based protocol being used for your specific condition, and will be discussed in advance with your Physiotherapist. 

Therapeutic Ultrasound is used as part of a holistic treatment plan. Glow Physio frequently treats the following conditions with this technology. Click on the links below to learn how this technology can help your specific Pelvic Health condition:
