THERAPEUTIC ULTRASOUND & ELECTROTHERAPY
Therapeutic ultrasound is used in clinical therapy to treat a variety of daily life, work or sports injuries. It speeds up the healing process using high-frequency sound waves.
Pulse ultrasound is used to treat inflammations such as tendinitis and bursitis. This kind of ultrasound therapy works through cavitation, transmitting vibrations that stimulate cell membranes, resulting in more rapid repair.
Continuous ultrasound therapy is used to treat spasms, pain and to relax tense muscles. In this type of ultrasound, the sound waves transmitted create friction as they pass through muscle fibres, which in turn produces heat in the injured area. The body increases blood circulation to that area to cool it down, and this increased blood flow speeds up the healing process.
Ultrasound is only used in our clinic in conjunction or to supplement advanced manual therapy techniques during sessions or as clinically appropriate.

What our clients say
"Just want to add that I highly recommend SPORTS CLINICAL. I regularly have treatment with Dean and I've made massive progress with my posture and alignment - I've learned techniques that has helped me to get fitter and stronger. I always feel that I'm in safe hands with someone who knows what they're doing - Through personal experience I can tell you that prevention is better than cure. Don't wait until it's too late - identifying and treating weaknesses and niggles before they turn into injuries is by far less costly."
