Ultrasound:

Ultrasound is a high frequency mechanical vibration that is produced by a transducer and transmitted into the tissue. Two common frequencies used for therapeutic ultrasound is 3 Mhz (for superficial tissue) and 1 Mhz (for deep tissue). An ultrasound can be set for a pulsed setting (vibration output every other second) or continuous setting (vibration output being constant).
