Precise diagnosis of musculoskeletal sports injuries
Many patients see sports medicine doctors for musculoskeletal injuries. The vast majority of injuries can and should be treated without surgery.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce imaging of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints in the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears and other soft tissue injuries or condition. This technique is safe and doesn’t require any invasive procedures like surgery would.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging allows us a degree of diagnostic precision that is otherwise impossible. Ultrasound technology allows us to see rotator cuff tears, tendinosis, fluid in the joints, plantar fasciopathy and carpal tunnel conditions.
This imaging method has greatly improved the quality and depth of the care we offer. Our diagnoses are more accurate because of the images that ultrasound provides, and our injections are also more accurate.
