Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a very effective tool for treating and diagnosing a wide variety of foot and ankle problems. This is especially true for soft tissue problems.

Common problems for which ultrasound may be prescribed include:

  • Bursitis
  • Heel spurs or plantar fasciitis
  • Injuries of the ligaments, tendons, or cartilage
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Presence of foreign bodies
  • Soft tissue masses
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendonitis or tears in a tendon

Ultrasound uses sound waves on the body in a way much like radar uses sound waves. The waves hit a targeted area and are bounced back to a recording device, which produces an image based on a set of transmitted waves.

Ultrasound is a completely safe and painless diagnostic procedure.
