Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound Is Here!
Dr. Bross was part of one of the first groups of chiropractors trained in MSK Ultrasound for Dry Needling in the nation. This diagnostic tool is cutting edge for the assessment of soft tissue injuries. Whether it’s rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel assessment without the need for needles, meniscal tears, or other soft tissue assessments, diagnostic ultrasound leads the way as the choice tool to assess musculoskeletal pathologies. The technology is also unmatched for perfect placement of Dry Needles as the doctor (and patient) can see the needle(s) going into the targeted tissue.
What makes Diagnostic Ultrasound unique is its ability to evaluate a patient in real-time. Unlike an x-ray or MRI where you are stationary while being evaluated, diagnostic ultrasound allows for movement. This means you can see your tissues move. This allows for incredible imaging of damaged or partially torn tissues, especially when the tissues are placed under load or are stretched.
