Astoria, New York (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
Physical therapists and others involved in helping patients with pain and trauma to joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves have, in the past, had to resort to CT scans and MRIs to try to find the source of the patients’ discomfort.
Diagnostic ultrasound offers numerous advantages over these other methods, including accessibility, accuracy and safety.
Through the production of accurate data, now the physician and the physical therapist can modify their treatments to offer the patient the best intervention for their specific situation. This can be done on the spot with the use of ultrasound evaluation.
Hands-On Seminars is now offering courses taught by Randy E. Moore, the leading expert in musculoskeletal ultrasound diagnosis.
