We use musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound to help detect tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries. With ultrasound imaging, damaged tendons, ligaments, and muscles can be assessed in the doctor’s exam room. A patient’s injury can be evaluated in real-time and prompt treatment can be initiated. While x-rays remain the best tool to image bones and MRIs remain the best tool to evaluate cartilage and joint damage, ultrasound is an exciting tool that can provide patients with more immediate answers to the status of their injury. The best part about ultrasound…there’s no radiation exposure provided at no cost to members.
Dr. Sunshine also uses MSK US to guide many of his regenerative injections. Using MSK US allows for the visualization of the needle and the underlying structure. As a result, needle placement and product delivery is accurate, providing improved treatment outcomes.
