Ultrasound is an electrotherapy technique that creates mechanical energy through high frequency sound waves. These sound waves are transmitted through the soft tissuse to increase local tissue temperature and cell permeability. The principle aim of ultrasound is to enhance the healing process through increased extensibility in tendons, ligaments and joint capsules. Subsequently this is thought to decreased joint stiffness, pain, muscle spasm, as well as the production of a mild inflammatory reaction including an increase in blood flow.
