Ultrasound dry needling incorporates ultrasound imaging to enhance the precision of dry needling treatment targeted at a specific area of the body. This approach allows for a visual assessment of the affected tendon, identifying areas with tendonitis or tendinosis. Through ultrasound guidance, your physical therapist can accurately insert the needle directly into the affected region, visually confirming that the treatment addresses the root cause of your pain. Ultrasound dry needling enhances the accuracy of the treatment, facilitating a swift return to your beloved activities.
Ultrasound Guided Dry Needling
- Ultrasound-guided dry needling is an effective technique for enhancing range of motion and alleviating muscle tightness and pain. Whether you're dealing with tendonitis (inflammation of the tendon) or tendinosis (the gradual breakdown of tendon collagen), this approach may offer relief.
- The use of ultrasound enables your physical therapist to visualize your tissues, allowing precise needle insertion into the affected area. This targeted approach can accelerate healing, facilitating a quicker return to your preferred activities.
