Point of Care Ultrasound Scanning.

Musculoskeletal scans use ultrasound imaging to produce images of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints throughout the body, to assist with a working diagnosis of a musculoskeletal condition / injury or pain.

The real time imaging allows for a more detailed examination of the affected area, which is particularly useful for demonstrating causes of pain and muscle and tendon injuries, as well as being an accessible way to monitor these during treatment and the rehabilitation process

Point of care ultrasound scanning is not used in isolation to obtain an official diagnosis, therefore, if further investigation is required, our team will advise accordingly.

Treatment.

Point of Care Ultrasound Scanning is administered by a qualified chartered physiotherapist. A small, hand-held device (transducer) is pressed against the area being studied and is moved as needed to capture the images. The transducer sends sound waves into the body, collects the ones that bounce back and sends them to a computer, which produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints throughout the body. The treatment is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves and other musculoskeletal conditions.

What our patients say.

I have been suffering with tension headaches on and off for a couple of years now. I tried everything to get them to go away to the point where I thought they would never go and it was really taking over my life. I saw Jenine on a recommendation and I finally have them under control. Jenine is really friendly, easy to talk to and a great professional who really knows her stuff, I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone who needs help.

I have been to Laura twice with severe back pains caused by a problem hip. She has sorted out the pain with the minimum fuss. I would strongly recommend the clinic, the booking system is easy and everyone is charming and friendly, not to mention a super physio.

Emma Watson

I saw Laura today after suffering from severe back pain, since Saturday afternoon, I have been unable to walk without pain. Laura assessed, diagnosed and treated me with such professionalism and expertise. I am now able to walk with much more ease and I have been given exercises to do before she sees me again on Friday. I am so grateful that you are remaining open throughout this difficult time. Thank you.

Claire Stainton-James

I have had a long-standing issue with severe sciatica for more than 12 months due to a prolapsed disc. It had got to the point where I needed some professional help and advice so as to move forward with the injury. The improvement in a matter of weeks has been amazing. I will totally recommend this company to anyone that needs physiotherapy. Great value for money based on the profound effect made on my everyday life.
