Ultrasound and Chiropractic Care from a Chiropractor on Our Team
If you live in Bozeman, MT and need chiropractic care for muscle pain and to reduce inflammation, come see us at Bozeman Back and Neck Clinic. We have a chiropractor who can help with their expertise in many areas, including ultrasound.
What Conditions Can Ultrasound Help With?
Usually, when people hear the word ultrasound, they think of the imaging of a pregnant woman's belly to see how their baby is doing. Instead, it can be used to help with the following:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Chronic Pain
- Muscle Soreness
- Joint Tightness
- Ligament Strains
- Shoulder Pain
You won't use this if you have open wounds or open fractures. In those cases, you will need to rest and heal.
How It Works
A chiropractor on our chiropractic care team will use the ultrasound machine on the affected body part and send vibrations that will go into your muscle tissue. As a result, the muscles will heat up and become relaxed, which will then improve your blood flow and get you to heal faster.
A chiropractor on our team will make sure the treatment goes smoothly and answer any questions you might have.
The Treatment Itself
Just like when you are getting a regular ultrasound, a member of our team will put some gel on the area to help focus the sound waves and also allow the team member to smoothly move the ultrasound wand around your body.
This is usually relaxing for patients. You might feel some warmness around the area where the ultrasound is being applied but this may be due to your blood flow being increased.
After you finish your session, a chiropractor on our team might give you some stretches and exercises to do at home so that you can get the best results.
Chiropractors like to use multiple methods of chiropractic care, like manipulating body parts to improve spinal alignment. This is to help you get the best results at your session. Feel free to ask about an ultrasound at your next session.
