You may be aware of the use of ultrasound for fetal imaging. We use an ultrasound machine that is set at a much lower frequency to heat the body about six inches below the surface of the skin. This causes the body to dilate the blood vessels to disperse the extra heat. This causes two things to happen:
1. It Increases blood flow that helps flush out inflammation back to the liver to be broken down.
2. The increased blood flow also introduces trophic factors in the blood to stimulate healing.
We use ultrasound in conjunction with chiropractic treatment when chronic inflammation is the main concern.
