Ultrasound & Electrotherapy

Ultrasound is a deep heating modality that is most effective in heating tissues of deep joints. It has been found to be helpful in improving the distensibility of connective tissue, which facilitates stretching . 
It is perhaps best used to improve limitations in segmental spinal range of motion following reccurent or chronic low back pain as an adjunct in facilitating soft tissue mobilization and prolonged stretching by a skilled manual therapist.

ELECTROTHERAPY is the use of low-level electrical stimulation of the peripheral nervous system to override pain to include muscle contractions. 
It should be used in the first week after injury so that patients may quickly progress to more active treatment, which includes a restoration of range of motion and strengthening.
