Ultrasound for accurate diagnosis, education and monitoring

We can also offer musculoskeletal ultrasound during your consultations when required.

  • Aids in accurate diagnosis and explanation of your injury or pain – we know that understanding your injury is an important first step to getting you better

  • Saves you both time and expense - often there is no need to book an appointment with a radiology company and then another consultation for the results – this can all be done in a single visit at SPARC!

  • Dr Duncan Walker has done extensive additional training in both diagnostic and interventional ultrasound procedures

Once appropriate diagnosis has been made, there are a variety of therapeutic options available which will be recommended based on your particular diagnosis and circumstances. In general, injections under direct ultrasound visualization means relatively painless injections and accurate placement of the injection. In addition, we can also incorporate nerve blocks when possible to further reduce any discomfort for you. 

Interventions may include use of:

Many treatments for musculoskeletal conditions involve injections to assist with pain control and/or healing. By reducing pain, this also allows you to be able to progress your rehabilitation and reloading exercises in an efficient and pain free manner.
