This imaging technique is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.
Ultrasound images of the musculoskeletal system provide pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue throughout the body.
Geoff Twinning has developed his skills in the area of sonography to help assist with the diagnosis of soft tissue injuries.
Areas commonly investigated with Ultrasound scanning:
- Achilles injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Golfers elbow
- Muscle strains
- Ligament sprains and ruptures
This service is at the discretion of the therapist and will only be performed if clinically justified. In many cases our normal assessment skills provide the information we require to undertake treatment.
Diagnostic Ultrasound is included, where appropriate, in any physiotherapy treatment with Mr Geoff Twinning. Our clinical team can refer directly for a scan if treatment is not progressing as planned. Scanning an injured tissue really helps to analyse the severity of any lesion at the onset but also through its recovery
