Has anyone tried ultrasound for tts with any success? or anything else that helped with a physical therapist?

Lilly, I liked the ultrasound when I first started p.t. after surgery. It helped warm up the muscles, ligaments and tendons before I started doing my exercises. They never applied it directly over the TT area however. Haven't had it since then and don't feel I need it now.

Ultrasound may help alleviate the pain, but it is not a cure for TTS, since TTS invloves impending nerves. Like Terry said, it is a great tool post surgery
