Advanced diagnosis for even more advanced treatments
Musculoskeletal ultrasound, known as MSK ultrasound, is a way of using advanced ultrasound imaging to detect problems with the musculoskeletal system. We are knowledgeable and experienced in this area, helping us to deliver targeted treatments for issues with the joints, muscles and ligaments. Thanks to our advanced imaging systems, one of the most popular ways of doing this is by delivering targeted injections that provide you with more relief.

What is MSK ultrasound?
MSK ultrasound is simply a way of scanning the musculoskeletal system to offer more advanced, targeted treatments. It is similar to a scan on any other part of the body – it is able to look at your musculoskeletal system and find issues that might previously have been undetectable. It is a very useful way of diagnosing ongoing pain and problematic symptoms that could be related to a whole host of other issues.
How could MSK ultrasound scanning help you?
MSK ultrasound scanning can be used to diagnose a variety of issues, including:
- Tendon tears
- Plantar fasciitis
- Trapped nerves
- Joint inflammation
- Muscle tears
- Collections of fluid
- The early stages of arthritis
- Foreign bodies in soft tissue
The good news is that many of these issues can be treated more effectively once you have an in-depth diagnosis with ultrasound imaging. There are two main treatments that are offered following diagnosis:
- Targeted steroid injections. Your therapist will be able to see exactly where to place the injection for maximum effect. This treatment is often offered by GPs, but they won’t have any of the same resources and won’t be able to achieve the same degree of accuracy.
- Platelet-rich plasma injections. This makes use of your own blood which is re-injected into the affected area. It can even help patients avoid the need for joint replacement surgery.
By offering ultrasound-guided injections our therapists can get much better accuracy and can achieve better long-term results for you.
