Ultrasound uses ultrasonic sound waves to gently vibrate the cells in the targeted body part. This vibration can break down scar tissue which impedes healing, reduces range of motion and can cause abnormal nerve growth in the area leading to chronic pain. Ultrasound can be used for a deep heating effect, reduce pain, inflammation and even dissolve certain bone spurs like heel spurs. This new automated ultrasound can be placed on the patient’s target body part by the doctor and then the machine does the rest. Dr. Wheeler has successfully used ultrasound for over 25 years for conditions such as whiplash, tendinitis, bursitis, nerve pain, scar tissue reduction, swelling, sprains and strains, neck and back pain and sciatica.
