Musculoskeletal ultrasound is the use of a sophisticated ultrasound machine to help guide soft-tissue injections. While we use fluoroscopy for many joint injections or spine injections, the advantage of MSK ultrasound is that it can help guide injections for some tendon and ligament injections. It can also be used to diagnose things like rotator cuff tears, tendon, muscle, or ligament tears, and nerve entrapment.
One of the unique things about our clinic is that we use both sophiticated fluoroscopy techniques and MSK ultrasound. Most clinics use neither and the few that do use imaging guidance of injections use either MSK ultrasound or fluoroscopy, rarely both technologies. We can also use both at the same time to ensure extra accurate injections.

I’m back to my conditioning classes, doing squats, lunges, jumping rope and even a little bit of jogging. My knee feels, looks and works better every day. I’m definitely looking forward to the winter and getting back on my snowboard as soon as I can.

“We did the right knee in March 2007. I was off my feet for about an hour after each of the treatments, but that was it. No long recovery time, no time off from work – it was great. The cartilage began to grow back, and the knee was feeling much better, so we did the left knee in October. Since about two weeks later, I haven’t had any pain at all in either knee for the first time in 10 years. It’s fantastic.”
