Kane and Ross is one of the only practices in London to offer musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound with osteopathic treatment. This not only allows us to confirm a clinical diagnosis but also allows us to monitor tissue repair enhancing our osteopathic treatment and management strategies.

What is diagnostic ultrasound and how does it work?  
 


Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique used to generate real time images of specific areas of the body. It works by sending ultrasound waves through the body using a transducer. When these sound waves reach boundaries between our tissues (for example the boundary between soft tissue and bone) they are reflected. This produces an electrical signal that goes to a scanner and an image is produced!

How is diagnostic ultrasound used in Osteopathy?  

Diagnostic Ultrasound is a quick, safe, painless procedure that enables the osteopath to accurately diagnose problems of the soft tissues.

It can be particularly helpful in establishing an accurate diagnosis of the following musculoskeletal conditions and pathologies that we as osteopaths see in everyday practice:

Shoulder -rotator cuff problems -tears inflammation, bursitis, tendinitis, impingement

Elbow – tendon problems such as tennis or golfers elbow (not only in tennis or golf players)

Wrist/Hand  -carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injuries, ganglion cysts, arthritis

Hip – hernia, bursitis, tendon problems, arthritis

Knee – problems of the tendons, ligaments, bursa, bakers cyst, signs of meniscal damage

Ankle – achilles tendon: tears and inflammation, tenosynovitis, arthritis, ligament damage

Foot– plantar fasciitis, morton’s neuroma, arthritis, tendinitis
