Why Ultrasound Scan

When a person has a muscle, bone or joint problem, it is often their experience of pain that drives them to seek treatment.

There are two common factors that cause an experience of pain. Mechanical irritation generating stress and strain on particular structures and chemical changes referred to as inflammation.

Ultrasound scans allow the clinician and client to clearly see the origin of their mechanical irritation and also observe areas of tissue inflammation.

It is common to find that the mechanical and inflammatory problem does not exist where the pain experience is felt.

For this reason ultrasound scans are essential to help direct best treatment.

Guided Injections

Injection therapy of corticosteroids is the most effective way to suppress inflammation.

Under guidance with ultrasound we can identify tissues that are suffering excessive inflammation and direct the medication exactly and safely to the right spot.
