Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound

At the Foundry Clinic we use ‘point-of- care ultrasound’ (often referred to as POCUS) alongside our physiotherapy assessment and treatment.

This allows for accurate diagnosis of soft tissue injuries, which in turn enables us to have a better understanding of how to manage a wide range of conditions.
An accurate diagnosis significantly advances treatment and management of a wide range of conditions. Diagnostic ultrasound also allows us to accurately direct treatments to a specific area of tissue damage, e.g. for dry needling techniques and ultrasound guided injections.

Diagnostic ultrasound identifies:


Rotator cuff tendinopathy and bursitis

Foot and ankle

Ligament injury, tendinopathy, bursitis, Morton’s neuroma, plantar fasciitis


Patella tendinopathy, quadriceps tendinopathy, osteoarthritis, bursitis, joint effusions, Baker’s/popliteal cyst, hamstring injuries


Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, biceps injuries

Wrist and hand

Carpal tunnel, tendinopathy
