Enhancing the Body’s Own Natural Healing Process

Busy. Busy. Busy.  It’s the name of the game in New York City.  You don’t have time to slow down.  You eat lunch with one hand, while you set dinner plans with the other.  You sometimes wish you had a prehensile tail to prepare that presentation for tomorrow.  Alas.

But there comes a time in every busy New Yorker’s life when contingencies intervene.  Maybe it’s an injury.  Maybe it’s surgery.  You’re recovering, but you’re itching to get back out there.  With ultrasound therapy on the Upper East Side, you can do that.  You can do it without drugs.  This non-invasive therapy works by enhancing the body’s own natural healing process.  That’s powerful, and that’s what you need to get back in the fast-paced New York City game.

While ultrasound therapy may sound futuristic, it’s been around since the 1940s.  It uses high-frequency sound waves to stimulate the body’s tissues, encouraging them to heal more quickly than they would otherwise.

This effective therapy is available at Back & Body Medical.  We’re an integrated medical clinic offering multi-disciplinary care to busy Upper East Side New Yorkers like you.  All the care you need is here, in our comprehensive, state-of-the-art facility.

Fast track healing.

Ultrasound therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free therapy which offers fast-track healing for our Upper East Side patients.  The vast array of conditions treatable by ultrasound therapy includes arthritis and injuries which have damaged muscle and bone.  Tendonitis can also be treated with ultrasound therapy.  Painful scar tissue and adhesions are another application of ultrasound therapy.  It has proven highly effective in softening and breaking these down.  Ultrasound therapy also improves circulation, expediting healing and recovery.

How it works.

A wand attached to the ultrasound machine is placed on the affected area and moved over it.  The action of the wand is facilitated by a gel, allowing it to glide gently over the patient’s skin.  Energy is transmitted via the wand and into the affected tissue.  The effect is of enhancing the body’s own natural healing process.

The frequency of the sound waves is adjustable, according to the nature of the trauma in question.  Depending on what the patient is undergoing ultrasound to treat, or the severity of the injury or trauma, the number of sessions and their intensity can vary.  Most sessions take from between three and five minutes, depending on the size of the affected area.
