Real time Ultrasound

Riccarton Physio is able to offer access to real time ultrasound. This is predominantly used as a feedback tool for patients in their education of correct recruitment of core muscles (in particular transversus abdominis).

It highlights just how little effort is required for a good and correct activation. More importantly the patient can visually see how to isolate the deepest layer of abdominals – the key to good spinal stability. This correct recruitment enables a faster recovery from your injury but more importantly aids you in the prevention of recurrent injury through more control and better stability of the spine.

Ask your therapist if they think the US feedback will benefit you.

Currently there is no extra charge for this service.
