Diagnostic Ultrasound and Ultrasound Guided Injection
At LICC, we offer in house diagnostic ultrasound and steroid injection therapy by one of our highly qualified Physiotherapists
Mr.Anand Parkunan, Specialist Physiotherapist, Sonographer and Independent prescriber and his team, has taken extensive further qualifications gaining many hours of work and academic experience. Being part of our team means we can work closely together in ensuring all questions of the investigation are answered and the Physiotherapy treatment is tailored effectively according to the findings. There are very few contra-indications to Ultrasound investigation and the results are immediate, just as with an antenatal scan. We can inform the result to your GP depending on your consent.
This form of investigation and treatment is ideal for conditions such as Soft tissue injuries (shoulder pain due to Bursitis/tendinitis/Frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, sprained ankles, Achilles tendon). You will be given a full report and an explanation of the findings at the time and advised on the implications and future management.
The report information can then be used by your Physiotherapist to progress the treatment and management accordingly, and if necessary a recommendation of the appropriate referral on to a Consultant if required
