MSK Ultrasound Workshops:
Hands On Training
Now You Can See What Your Patients Feel!
Recent advances in sonar and ultrasound technology have created a more functional and practical approach to evaluate joints, muscles, ligaments and even nerves. This technology is called Musculoskeletal Ultrasound.
Clinical evidence and research support using ultrasound as the first diagnostic test for numerous musculoskeletal conditions. Diagnostic ultrasound offers a number of important advantages compared to X-Ray, CT and MRI, in terms of safety and effectiveness. Musculoskeletal ultrasound simply uses sonic waves, and there is no exposure to radiation.
MSK Masters announces collaboration with Dr. Steve Coppola of Coppola Physical Therapy to provide diagnostic hands-on training using MSK ultrasound.
By providing a 3-Step approach to learning MSK diagnostic scanning and image reading, the course also presents the application of dry needling. Ultrasound imaging specifically identifies myofascial trigger points, specific myotendinous anatomy that can then be accurately targeted for dry needling procedures. Focused and targeted treatment yields optimal outcomes and significantly elevates the physical therapist level of certainty of providing superior treatment.
**NOTE: The focus of this 2-day hands-on workshop is on MSK ultrasound scanning and imaging techniques. If you are not interested in the dry needling portion, you will still gain valuable instruction and practice scanning the musculoskeletal system.
