Ultrasound is a device that delivers sound waves into the body to provide a deep heat. This heat brings blood flow to the area to stimulate healing. In the acute stages of injury it can be used to decreased inflammation in a joint, muscle or ligament. In later stages it can be used to heat an area for mobilization or to relax muscles. As a result, it decreases pain.
