Therapeutic ultrasound is a modality that involves the use of a transducer to transmit sound waves into the patient's tissue. This causes warming in the deep tissues and into the muscles. This also results in increased blood flow to the region temporarily, which may improve the healing process. The sound waves may also improve the permeability of the tissue to topical medications. Most physical therapists use this as an adjunct to treatment rather than as an independent treatment modality (Alexender et al. 2010, Leaver et al. 2010).
