Therapeutic ultrasound therapy is a cutting-edge modality that uses ultrasonic sound waves to heal a wide range of different injuries and ailments. Therapeutic ultrasounds are specifically designed for healing muscle and tissue injuries. For this procedure, an ultrasound machine is applied to the skin surrounding an injury.

These vibrations provide several positive effects on the injury’s ability to heal. Here at Farmingdale Physical Therapy East, therapeutic ultrasounds are just one of the many services that we provide our patients with.
