Looking for diagnostic ultrasound in Hilversum?

You can contact us for diagnostic ultrasound! The scope of ultrasound has changed tremendously over the previous couple of years. 

It is essential to properly examine and diagnose an injury in order to treat it correctly. For example; a tendonitis and muscle tear are treated differently. Physiotherapists can specialise further into becoming an ultrasound therapist. We have the expertise and equipment to help you.

How does ultrasound work?

Ultrasound works on the basis of sound waves that maps out different tissues. The sonographer will place the ultrasound head on the affected body part. Subsequently, the different structures are clearly visible on the image, and a diagnosis can be made. Ultrasound is neither painful nor harmful.

Which injuries are indicated for ultrasound?

Ultrasound is used to investigate soft tissue such as a muscletendon, bursa or ligament. In such manner, it is possible to see the location and conclude a diagnosis of soft tissue injuries.

Ultrasound can be used, among other things, for:

  • Tendon injuries
  • Muscle injuries
  • Bursitis,
  • Injuries to the joint capsule or ligament,
  • Cyst

Ultrasound – a customized physiotherapy treatment

After the ultrasound, the results of the examination will be discussed, and a unique treatment plan will be created. For instance; for the appropriate application of the focused shockwave, ultrasound is needed to determine the depth of the soft tissue injury. This device can then be adjusted to that reach the exact depth for optimal treatment. Muscles can also be injured in diverse ways. The physiotherapist utilizes an alternative approach for each type of injury.
