The difficulty in its reading and interpretation has been the cause of the underutilisation of ultrasound applied to the musculoskeletal system. Nowadays, in correlation with technological advances, the normal and pathological ultrasound knowledge of our locomotor system is increasing, which allows us to intervene with greater precision in the affected area.
Ultrasound is an innocuous image technique of low cost, high portability and excellent accuracy. The success of this latter quality will depend on the facultative knowledge of its physical bases and correct applications.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound offers a wide range of socio-sanitary advantages, specifying pathologies, showing the patient’s lesional evolution in an objective way and quantitatively validating the different and numerous therapeutic techniques that interact in the recovery of the affective musculoskeletal system. All these advantages are highly enhanced thanks to the practice of computerised ultrasound analysis.
For this reason, based on extensive technical training and a correct use of knowledge, not invading competencies, ultrasound can be used by various health professionals such as doctors and physiotherapists whose team work will offer great social satisfaction.
At Linde Physiotherapy we have the latest ultrasound that allows us to perform echo-guided techniques as well as to correctly assess the evolution of musculotendinous injuries:
- Tendinitis (Tendinosis).
- Fibrillation fractures.
- Ligamentous sprains.
- Joint Spills.
