    Ultrasound

    Ultrasound is a very effective tool for treating and diagnosing a wide variety of foot and ankle problems. This is especially true for soft tissue problems.

    Common problems for which ultrasound may be prescribed include:

    • Bursitis
    • Heel spurs or plantar fasciitis
    • Injuries of the ligaments, tendons, or cartilage
    • Morton’s neuroma
    • Presence of foreign bodies
    • Soft tissue masses
    • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
    • Tendonitis or tears in a tendon

    Ultrasound uses sound waves on the body in a way much like radar uses sound waves. The waves hit a targeted area and are bounced back to a recording device, which produces an image based on a set of transmitted waves.

    Ultrasound is a completely safe and painless diagnostic procedure.
