Ultrasound Imaging & Guidance
Over the past 10 years, ultrasound has increasingly found its way into orthopedic medicine, and for good reason. It allows for extremely safe and dynamic (i.e. provides continues image as you move/change) views of soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Not only are injuries to these tissues readily identified, but needles can be seen and guided to a specific site for treatment. This not only increases effectiveness of regenerative injections such as PRP and prolotherapy, but also vastly decreases inherent risk when placing needles into joints or around nerves and vascular structures.
