What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a scanning method so safe it is used in pregnancy to view the baby. We can also use it for a wide variety of medical purposes to investigate painful or damaged structures in the body. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce accurate images of various parts of the body. This could include joints, and soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, nerves and fascia.
