The benefits of Therapeutic Ultrasound

To illustrate the benefits of Therapeutic Ultrasound, take a look at these pictures showing the effect it has had in treating scar tissue.
Token has had a number of surgical interventions since managing to hang his foot on wire fencing 18 months ago. He needed to have proud flesh removed (picture 2) after the inital surgery, this second wound then healed with resulting scar tissue that was ridged and inflexible.


The final two photos show the scar tissue following just four sessions of Therapeutic Ultrasound. As you can see, the scar tissue has reduced in diameter and depth and has become softer and significantly more flexible allowing a greater range of movement from the fetlock. Further treatments are planned for Token - we will post updates as he progresses.
