Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves to treat injuries, such as sprains, tendinitis, and bursitis. There are two main types of ultrasound therapy: thermal and mechanical. Both penetrate soft tissues with sound waves above the range of human hearing and promote healing. Thermal ultrasound therapy uses a continuous transmission of sound waves to penetrate tissues. Mechanical ultrasound therapy uses pulses of sound waves. The type of ultrasound therapy you receive depends on your condition.
