Ultrasound Diagnostics and Injections
Ultrasound scanning (USS) is a perfect companion to the physiotherapist. It can be done instantly with the results immediate and can provide a more definitive diagnosis and management plan. It is a dynamic scan which means that we can analyse the effect of movement on the tissues as well as viewing them when stationary. It is perfectly safe and can be repeated to assess recovery in a condition.
USS provides a clear and accurate diagnosis to assist treatment and management of a condition.
