Musculoskeletal ultrasound scan is inherent to the attention process in physiotherapy and it makes the physiotherapist’s decisions easier to be made, both in the evaluation and in the physiotherapeutic diagnosis, planning, therapeutic intervention and reassessment. It also facilitates the monitoring and assessment of the evolution of the injured part in the next sessions, after the physiotherapeutic treatment has been started.

 

From the physiotherapist point of view, it is a tool that provides an objective, dynamic, fast, efficient and harmless study of the musculoskeletal tissue in an immediate and comparative way.

 

Musculoskeletal ultrasound scan is a technique in continuous development, its use is more and more important for the daily practice in the clinic, both for the diagnosis and the further monitoring of the treatment, for health professionals.
