Physicians use many tactics to aid in diagnosing a problem. One of these methods is called modalities. A modality is a system or procedure used to help diagnose a condition. Ultrasounds are modalities used as part of a treatment plan to help pain in the lower back.
The benefit of an ultrasound is its ability to penetrate and heat the tissues of deep joints. This process helps the connective tissue around those joints to stretch better. Ultrasounds also help improve range of motion in the spine when used with physical therapy treatment.
Ultrasounds are recommended to be part of a treatment plan. When they are not, the benefits of ultrasounds tend to be only short-term.
