Diagnostic Ultrasound Exam
Get that injury examined by Dr. Lisa with a site-specific look below the skin to evaluate your ache or pain. We can see tendons, bursitis, new or chronic muscle injuries and even fractures.
This technique is useful for evaluating:
- Bursitis of the hip or shoulder
- Tendonitis of fingers, elbows, or knees
- Pinpoint bone pain
- Overuse syndromes
- Shoulder Impingement
- Nerve Entrapment or Snapping Syndromes
- Tendon or Muscle damage
Note: This diagnostic method is not used for the meniscus of the knee, herniated discs, or the labrum of the hip or shoulder.
Above: Diagnostic ultrasound of the rotator cuff of the shoulder. D=Deltoid Muscle H= Humerus Arrow head=Bursa of the shoulder Arrow=Tear of the supraspinatus tendon from the attachment upon the of the rotator cuff.
"Lisa has been great. First visit included a thorough examination, and an accurate diagnosis. She has given me the tools to help myself outside of sessions. She also treats using so many methods - she has used chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture needles, given me physical therapy type exercises to work on. She listens, seems really caring, and knows a lot about what she does. Especially if you are a climber - very much worth a try!"
