"LifeSport has been great. First visit included a thorough examination, and an accurate diagnosis. Dr. Lisa 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!"
Meet Dr. Lisa
The head provider at LifeSport, Dr. Lisa has lectured, written and educated for Climbing Magazine, Mens Health, USAClimbing, CU Alpine Club, and Mountain Project. A multi-sport athlete herself, Dr. Lisa finished the Leadwoman series of ultra-distance bike and running races in 2013 being the youngest athlete to date. An avid climber and backcountry skier, Lisa currently isn't racing but spends her time at the clinic thriving on difficult cases. Currently heading out for maternity leave, she has selected Dr. Karen Hollaman to take over all her injured clients (and Meredith Horske specifically for all finger, wrist and upper arm injuries).
Diagnostic Ultrasound Exam
Fix or manage? Difficult to solve cases get a new look with MSK Ultrasound. Using a modern technique that rivals MRIs (but is sound based instead of magnetic), visualization of your injury with a site specific scans allow us to look below the skin to evaluate your ache or pain. Once the true injury has been assessed, we can develop a solid treatment plan that allows you to heal to the fullest and to get that final answer. We can see tendons, bursitis, new or chronic muscle injuries and even surface-level fractures. This evaluation type helps us to diagnose and compare even the smallest finger injuries, a LifeSport specialty!
MSK Ultrasound is useful for evaluating:
- Bursitis of the hip or shoulder
- Tendonitis of fingers, elbows, or knees
- Pinpoint bone pain and bone reactions
- Overuse syndromes
- Shoulder Impingement
- Nerve entrapment or snapping syndromes
- Tendon or muscle damage revealed
This technique helps us to follow:
- Longterm maintenance of damaged structures
- Progress of tendon repair and recovery
- Check-ups for return to sport (previous injuries)
- Tendinosis and tear progression (management)
Images are discussed at length in office and an email of your images is sent as requested.
Note: This diagnostic method is not used for the meniscus of the knee, herniated discs, or the labrum of the hip or shoulder.
