To enhance diagnosis Active Healthcare use ultrasound scans to see beneath your skin and gain an image of your your joint and tissue anatomy.
Ultrasound scans are a safe and effective way to determine damage and inflammation to tendons, muscles, ligaments and bursae ( fluid sacs). Having established the condition of these tissues we can advise on best treatment.
Most treatment will require tissue mobilisation and osteopathic techniques as described in the section on Osteopathy.
In some situations the clinician may suggest injection therapy to help minimise excessive inflammation. This treatment can also be delivered by Active Healthcare.
If you are unsure as to the cause of your pain or suspect you may need further diagnostics tests to confirm or exclude tissue problems then please contact the clinic and we will arrange an Ultrasound Diagnostic scan.
The image below shows an enlarged shoulder a/c joint capsule which can benefit from injection therapy
The next image shows a partial tear to a shoulder tendon. Rehabilitation would be the first treatment option for this condition; but surgery remains a consideration. Active Healthcare can monitor changes and advise accordingly.
