At Excel Physiotherapy we are able to offer Real Time Ultrasound. This enables us to see live pictures of your muscles and tendons. This is not only helpful in conﬁrming a clinical diagnosis in conjunction with a thorough physical assessment, but can be very useful in retraining muscle activity. The immediacy you get from real time ultrasound means you can see your progress there and then.
Seeing how well your deep abdominal muscles and spinal muscles are working with live bio feedback can help you effectively perform your exercises. The ability to retrain these muscles can be key in treating many chronic and acute pain conditions. Even strong people can be using muscles incorrectly so real time ultrasound is useful for many patients.
