Real Time Ultrasound Physiotherapy
Using a diagnostic ultrasound, we can watch your different layers of muscles contract, relax and most importantly observe muscle contraction period, size and even estimate the amount fatty tissue within your withered old muscles. Yes, it’s just like watching an unborn baby.
The ultrasound scanner provides you and your physiotherapist with a video picture of your muscles working. This enables you to precisely connect with what you think, you feel with what is actually happening beneath your skin at that very moment. This makes it much easier for you to correctly do your deep core stability exercises at home that can accelerate the process of pain relief.
