Diagnostic Ultrasound is a specialised technique for examining the interior of the body from the outside. It is a non-invasive procedure using ultrasound gel applied to the skin to provide an image with the ultrasound transducer pressed against the body part.
It is not painful and is used to evaluate the continuity and function of tendons and muscles for the purposes of diagnosis.
At Core Body Clinic we use Ultrasound for the diagnosis of pelvic floor dysfunction and to train the pelvic muscles. The ultrasound provides an image so that both the physiotherapist and patient can observe muscle function for visual training feedback. The ultrasound serves to enhance the treatment effect of pelvic re-training.
In the video above we can see the bladder working to contract the pelvic muscles. We can accurately check for timing, strength and appropriate contractions. Patients who benefit from this include both male and female patients with conditions treated listed below (note – not limited to).
- Pelvic pain
- Hard Flaccid
- Diastasis Recti
- Gynaecological Surgery
- Pelvic Floor Re-training
