Real-time Ultrasound is a technique whereby ultrasonic vibrations are used to produce pictures showing what is going on under the skin. The scans are performed painlessly and provide immediate feedback on the screen.
Real-time Ultrasound is used to achieve greater accuracy in diagnosis of your injury, whilst also being a useful tool in rehabilitation. As the images appear in real-time you will be able to see muscles contracting and relaxing and ensure the correct muscles are activating during the rehabilitation process. This allows for a highly specialised treatment and educates clients on the correct way to activate their muscles.
Real-time Ultrasound is one of the most frequently used techniques in assessing whether your core musculature is activating in order to assist our expert practitioners in providing more effective clinical pilates training.
