Perfomance Physio, Fitness and Sports offers a core stability real-time ultrasound imaging service. The use of real-time ultrasound imaging is an extremely effective tool in improving chronic low back pain, SIJ pain, strengthening post stress fractures as well as post-operative lumbar spine rehabilitation.
Why do you need this?
Extensive Research has shown that the function of your deep core muscles - transversus abdominis and multifidis - is extermely important at stabilising your spine, protecting spinal structures such as joints and discs, and preventing pain. Research has also shown that with injury and pain, these muscles switch off which then makes the pain and injury worse. This is a major cause of chronic back pain. Real-time ultrasound is the most effective in retraining these muscles .
How does it work?
The real-time ultrasound machine allows you to actually see what muscles are contracting on a screen. So you can see when your muscles are not coming on at all, just flickering on and off, or when your big muscles are just taking over, and then when you are achieving a good strong isolated contraction. Once you have learnt how to turn on the deep core muscles by themselves, the real-time ultrasound machine can be used to train these muscles in functional positions.
