medical consultations at the practice assists with diagnosis and assessment

ultrasound guided soft tissue/ joint injections - via referral or done himself 

real time ultrasound and core strength building session at the Pilates studio at the back of the practice. 


In the Pilates studio at the back of the practice real time ultrasound is used  to assist with core body activation. The transducer is applied onto  the body in various sites and the client can observe how they can maintain core activation with simple breathing and then some simple movements to challenge them.  


Follow up care

Over time the patient will be monitored for recovery and treatment adjusted depending on  progress - this may involve the patient practicing exercise repertoires with a simple home based program and review back for a further RTUS session,  or maybe a referral to a physio, osteopath, exercise physiologist or specialist may be required. 


More about real time ultrasound 

General benefits include improved sense of posture, and connection to centre and general well-being. Recovery and managing conditions such as back, hip pain, neck and shoulder pain, improved pelvic floor and also bladder issues for some clients. The goals  will allow return to desired sporting and or other physical activity and reducing  risk of reinjury.

This video uses a lower transabdominal approach to assess and give feedback on pelvic floor activation. 
The  lift is demonstrated with an increase curve at the base of the bladder and then return to the relaxed position 

Here we are assessing and giving feedback for improvement of the deep abdominal muscle activation - note the isolated slide of the deep transverse abdominus(TA)  muscle to the right without excess involvement of the more superficial muscles(internal an external obliques). The TA is the deepest muscle and core stabliser of the belly. Isolated activation of this corset muscle is important to prevent back pain.
