Diagnostic Ultrasound

New Plymouth Physiotherapy is excited to offer diagnostic ultrasound scanning.

Grace Kelly trained through the Australian Institute of Ultrasound.

Being a physiotherapist helps with accurate anatomical knowledge and diagnosis.

Ultrasound is a useful diagnostic tool which uses sound waves to assess and grade a variety of muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve and bony injuries.

Ultrasound is a non-invasive technique; it is a safe scanning tool which does not use radiation to produce an image.

Ultrasound is not a treatment technique.

Ultrasound within our clinic can be used to diagnose:

  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon injuries
  • Ligament sprains/tears
  • Nerve entrapment or injuries
  • Fluid or inflammation within a joint
  • Stress fractures
  • Foreign bodies
