Dr. Mark Pendergast, DC
Active Healthcare & Rehab of Dacula GA Provides Pain Relief Through Ultrasound Physical Therapy
Do you know about ultrasound physical therapy? When most patients hear that Dr. Mark Pendergast offers ultrasound services at Dacula GA’s Active Healthcare & Rehab, they usually think of the technology used to view and screen the body internally, but ultrasound as a form of physical therapy is different. It can help patients suffering from joint problems, muscle spasms and numerous soft tissue maladies. Dr. Pendergast wants Georgia pain sufferers to learn more about this unique therapeutic technology and help to determine if it can help them.
Ultrasound physical therapy works by sending minor vibrations through the body’s soft tissue and muscles. This is accomplished as small sound waves are generated through the ultrasound wand. Dr. Pendergast and his associates then gently use the wand on targeted areas of the patient’s body, implementing a more focused treatment. Through the use of ultrasound technology, Active Healthcare & Rehab patients feel a relaxing warming effect, which promotes the body’s natural healing process, stimulates blood circulation, massages and relaxes tense areas, and decreases formation of scar tissue. Ultrasound physical therapy can be used in conjunction with other Active Healthcare & Rehab treatment programs, and often serves as a comforting, non-invasive means of accelerating a patient’s rehabilitation and pain management program.
Dr. Mark Pendergast is happy to help Dacula, GA patients determine if ultrasound physical therapy can be used to ease and compliment their treatment. He welcomes questions about ultrasound treatment and the many other services offered at Active Healthcare & Rehab, including laser therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, massage therapy and traditional chiropractic adjustment and subluxation services.
