Ultrasound Tests

Isokinetic’s Specialist Doctors are all trained and highly expereinced in the use of diagostic ultrasound.  Ultrasound is a very important tool in the diagnostic process for sports injuries, and twinned with a thorough clinical examination, allows patients to have a full picture of their specific situation.

Diagnostic ultrasound, sometimes called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. The images can provide valuable information about the health of tendons, muscles and other soft tissue structures.  Also it will allow the doctor to see blood flow and also identify any pooling of blood or fluid after an injury or trauma.

Typically, a doctor will wait around 48 hours after a muscle injury has taken place to perform an ultrasound examination in order to avoid overestimating the damage.

An ultrasound scan is a painless test and it is a very commonly used test. Ultrasound may also be used for treating certain conditions, particularly those of muscles, tendons and joints. The scan may be used to guide an injection which can help to treat the problem. Doing the injection with the help of an ultrasound scan makes sure it reaches exactly the right place. For example, ultrasound-guided injections are a common way to treat shoulder problems such as a frozen shoulder.

It is also necessary to repeat the test during rehabilitation to assess the process of muscle fibre repairs, helping to show how the recovery process is progressing.
