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.

Physiotherapist John Leddy is our resident sonographer and his experience and skill is unsurpassed in the region. Ultrasound consultations are available on Tuesdays. Your physiotherapist will advise you if an USS is advisable.

John is also an Independent Prescriber which means that he can give injections under Ultrasound Guidance (which make them much more accurate).  These injections are often Cortico-steroid or Visco-supplementation.  Your Physiotherapist will advice is an injection is advisable
