MSK Ultrasound

MSK  (musculoskeletal) ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves, arthritis, and other sports injuries. We are actually able to image your injury while you are moving it to confirm the location and sometimes even the cause of the injury. This information allows us to make precise a precise diagnosis and give you better rehab protocols and speed the healing of injuries.
