Whats goin on guys? Long time no post. I am currently fightning my disc herniation tooth and nail with a good pt - took me a few tries to find one. Anyhoo, my question concerns the effectiveness of ultrasound therapy for myofacial adhesions. The nearest ART practitioner I can find is more than an hour away now, so that severely limits my options for the real ART. But my PT does have an ultrasound machine. I was just wondering if the untrasound was comparable to ART. I have read multiple studies that suggest ultrasounds usefulness, but have found a couple that suggest it is bunk. Any thoughts on its effectiveness would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone wants to know- the reason I ask is that my freakishly inhibited and weak lower abs will not pick up and fire, it seems no matter what I do they lay dormant and tight. I am thinking I have some nice adhesions along my lower abs and hip flexors, and perhaps my lower and mid back limiting my recovery and rehabilitation.
