Ultrasound is a treatment modality with the capability to deliver thermal and non-thermal energy to musculoskeletal tissues to affect various stages of healing. A number of less utilized methods of ultrasound that are used in sports medicine also exist. Low doses of ultrasound have been approved for the treatment of delayed or non-unions, and the treatment has been suggested to benefit stress fracture healing. Ultrasound imaging has also been employed in rehabilitation, specifically as a biofeedback device for core muscle activation during therapeutic exercise. In addition, ultrasound imaging can be utilized to evaluate ligament length changes after an acute ankle sprain.
