REAL TIME ULTRASOUND
Ultra Physio is a clinic that specialises in using Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS), for the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
RTUS is a machine, similar to what you would see when having a baby and diagnostic ultrasounds. RTUS allows us to image structures to diagnose injuries, but predominantly to see if people can activate certain key muscle groups imperative to normal function, rehabilitation of injuries and injury prevention.Ultra Physio in particular will be focusing on the activation of the pelvic floor, Multifidus, and Transversus Abdominus, co-activation of these muscle groups is the core stability everybody is looking for and ultimately what the likes of Pilates is built on.
At Ultra Physio we have a combined experience of over 20 years in musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, injuries ranging from your weekend warrior, sports injuries and general aches and pains from your everyday activities of all ages We have worked closely with the likes of Plus One who specialises in Womens health Physiotherapy and assess and treat pelvic floor problems and core stability following having babies.
