About Ultrasound Therapy
Much like other chiropractic techniques such as chiropractic adjustments (manipulation), ultrasound in Jacksonville and Orange Park is used for various illnesses, medical conditions, and injuries. We at Meridian Integrative Wellness believe in a holistic approach that delivers authentic health care and relief from pain and discomfort.
With ultrasound therapy, improved healing can be expected for all of our patients. Oftentimes, ultrasound is used with other treatments we offer at our chiropractic offices. While an adjustment helps to restore function to a restricted joint and relieves pain, the muscles in the area are also affected. Ultrasound therapy addresses these areas and breaks down the adhesion causing the restriction in the first place.
An ultrasound is used in our office to minimize muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Sound waves are used in order to deliver deep heat to the tissues being treated.
Ultrasound therapy can help:
- Reduce swelling, stiffness, and pain.
- Promote a pain-free free range of motion
- Lead to increased circulation
Ultrasound is painless and many patients even find it relaxing! Talk about a win-win! It can be used alone or in conjunction with massage, heat, stretching, and as mentioned before, chiropractic adjustments.
What You Can Expect During Ultrasound Therapy
- One of our professionals will expose the area of skin being treated.
- A conduction gel is applied directly to the skin.
- Next, a conduction device is placed on the skin in order to deliver ultrasound treatment. Patients may feel a slightly warm feeling.
- Following treatment, the chiropractor may help you to stretch the joints treated.
What Conditions Does Ultrasound Therapy Help the Most?
Ultrasound therapy can also help patients who suffer with:
- Knee Pain
- Back Pain
- Frozen Shoulder

- Chronic Pain
Ultimately, this type of chiropractic treatment will get you on the road to recovery in no time at all.
