Kentucky Sports Clinic is proud to be one of the very few clinics in Louisville to offer affordable musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound.
Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound is a powerful and painless tool used to provide real-time images of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and cartilage throughout the body.
MSK ultrasound is particularly helpful in the diagnosis of orthopedic and sports injuries such as muscle strains/tears, joint pain, tendinopathies, bursitis, inflammation/edema, soft tissue adhesion, ligament damage, and cartilage loss.
Sometimes, pain or injury is triggered by movement, which cannot be captured in a static image. Ultrasound is performed in real time and can provide information that cannot be detected by any other imaging method. It has the added advantage of being radiation-free. In most cases, MSK ultrasound is a much more cost effective and efficient alternative to getting an MRI.
Our highly trained clinicians perform the exams in a comfortable setting, using your feedback to help pinpoint the problem area. We then use the results of your exam to guide treatment and give you the best information possible for optimal recovery.
