Ultrasound Imaging


Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI) at Cedar Hill Physical Therapy Greensboro

Extensive research has shown that retraining the deep abdominal muscles that stabilize the spine can significantly reduce the recurrence of low back pain. These muscles become impaired due to injury or degenerative changes. Once this happens, they don’t recover automatically. In fact, this motor control deficit continues even after the acute episode of back pain resolves. If you’re struggling with a motor control deficit, ultrasound imaging may be of benefit. Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI) is a non-invasive way to visualize the deep abdominal muscles. It is the same safe technology used to monitor the fetus during pregnancy.

Research has shown that RUSI can provide muscle measurements as accurate as MRI. But RUSI offers something even better- the ability to objectively visualize deep abdominal muscles during movement.

Using RUSI, Paul the Physical Therapist can better identify the cause of a problem which enables him to prescribe specific exercises to help you move better and feel better…faster!

With the combination of RUSI and Specific Stabilization Training, Paul the Physical Therapist is successfully treating many patients that have had long-standing symptoms or have failed to get better with traditional rehabilitation techniques.

Low Back Pain and Lower Extremity Injury

Not only does a motor control deficit lead to back pain, in several studies of athletes, there is increasing evidence that disruption in the function of these deep abdominal muscles may be the cause of tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries in the lower extremities as well.

Paul the Physical Therapist has specialized training in the use of RUSI and has even instructed other PTs in the use of the technology.

Using Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging allows Paul to do two important things for his patients-give them direct, real time visual feedback which leads to a highly individualized rehabilitation program.
