Therapeutic ultrasound, different from diagnostic ultrasound, uses sound waves to create a deep heat therapy. A type of micro-massage is created when these sound waves are applied to soft tissues and joints. This type of treatment can be especially effective in sprains, strains, acute conditions, and chronic issues alike. Duncan Chiropractic Group applies state-of-the-art ultrasound devices to achieve pain relief and promote healing in our patients.

- Breaks down scar tissue
Duncan Chiropractic Group uses ultrasound technology in our office for multiple reasons. First, because the heat produced penetrates as deep as 3-4 inches, relaxing deep muscles. Secondly, the heat generated helps to speed healing and reduce inflammation. Finally, the vibrating of tissues causes cell membranes to be stimulated, promoting the repair of the cells in areas that are inflamed.
Duncan Chiropractic combines extensive experience with advanced physiotherapies to realize meaningful results for our patients. At the end of the day, our number one goal is to improve our patients' quality of life, whether they are suffering from an injury or simply want to increase their well-being.
