Diagnostic Ultrasound as adjunct to assessment*
Physiolistic is one of the few clinics to have a high resolution ultrasound scanner. *The use of diagnostic ultrasound, if appropriate in your assessment, allows the physio to confirm the diagnosis after clinical testing. It is only ever an adjunct to a full physio assessment and you will not receive an ultrasound report.
We do not perform ultrasound scans without a full physiotherapy assessment and not all areas are appropriate to scan ( ie Back , deeper areas ie hip joint ) It will be up to the assessing physiotherapist to decide whether it is appropriate and valuable to decision making as to whether they will perform an ultrasound scan.
It has allowed us to pick up numerous injuries that have been missed by x-ray and also will change our treatment plan according to the findings. It is also useful in the use of rehabilitation especially for core stability.
It also allows the physio to monitor the progress of your treatment objectively. Diagnostic ultrasound is included in your initial assessment, if appropriate, at no extra cost.
