Musculoskeletal injuries may be work or sports related. In general, these injuries may occur through an accident or could develop over time from prolonged or repetitive use of the affected muscles. In either case, muscle ultrasound may be able to help in the healing and recovery process. Muscle ultrasound in Newport Beach at Premier Health Chiropractic has helped patients regain their flexibility and mobility, and ultimately recover fully.
Repetitive movements at work that could cause musculoskeletal injuries include prolonged daily use of the computer keyboard and lifting of heavy objects. These movements may result in the development of carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or tension neck syndrome.
In sports, injuries could also occur because of poor training exercises, use of improper equipment, or lack of stretching exercises to condition the muscles prior to actual training. From sprained joints to torn ligaments and tendons, dislocated joints, lower back, neck and should injury, all of these conditions may either develop immediately or over a period of time.
Muscle Ultrasound in Newport Beach at Premier Health Chiropractic
At our clinic, professionally trained and licensed physical therapists will administer the ultrasound therapy on the patient based on the recommendation of their physician. As most of our patients come in with specific therapy requests from their respective doctors, we make sure to carefully follow these to ensure the proper healing and rehabilitation of the patient.
If additional imaging tests are required prior to therapy, we will inform the patient and perform such tests as soon as possible. We understand the importance of not only working together with our patients’ doctors but also of applying the therapeutic methods in a timely manner to prevent the progression of the injury or further damaging the injured body part.
Muscle ultrasound utilizes high-frequency sound waves to aid in the healing and rehabilitation process. The sound waves are directed towards the injured muscles. Heat produced from the sound waves helps ease the pain and reduces inflammation or swelling. It also improves circulation and speeds up metabolism—all of which are aimed at improving the patient’s condition.
