Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the Joints, tendons, muscles,  ligaments, nerves, and other soft tissue throughout the body. This helps to identify the abnormalities of the musculoskeletal problems.

Do you want to get to the root cause of your pain fast?

Good news

Our highly experienced clinician’s aim is to support people suffering from musculoskeletal (Joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments) problems, such as pain, swelling, stiffness & reduced function by providing a fast access to our ‘ One-stop service clinic‘ to address your needs.

Ultrasound Scan

A Diagnostic Ultrasound Scan is carried out by placing a probe (also called transducer) and gel directly on the scanning part of the body skin. Gel helps to transfer the high-frequency sound waves from the transducer into the body and back to the probe to produce the body images on the screen.

Ultrasound scan is a noninvasive procedure and does not use ionizing radiation, hence it is a safe tool to use on anyone.

Better by 5

Over 90% of our patients get ‘Better by 5’ sessions.

If you need any of our physiotherapy, sports injury, sports massage or acupuncture services, you should see and feel a real difference by the end of your fifth session.

If, on the other hand, there is no improvement in your clinical condition or in the way you feel – we STOP after the fifth session. At that point, we reassess the reasons why there has been no apparent improvement and, if necessary, we can organise scans and letters to GP's and Consultants. You can be sure that we will never continue treating you unless there is a positive benefit – and only when you (and we) agree on your treatment plan.
