Musculoskeletal Ultrasound - Fort Lauderdale, FL
For Immediate Relief
Many musculoskeletal problems are difficult to diagnose because they are only apparent when the body is in motion. You can’t take an X-ray while someone is moving! But with diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound from our Fort Lauderdale, FL team, we can look at real-time images of what is going on inside a joint as a patient is using it. This allows us to determine whether the injury stems from a muscle, ligament, or tendon, meaning we can focus our treatment right where it is needed.

Ultrasound-Guided Joint and Nerve Blocks
Interventional injections have been used for years to help patients dealing with a wide variety of pain and injuries, but did you know that most doctors administer those injections without any type of guidance? This essentially means that they are doing them blind, making it very likely that the medicinal substance is not going where it is needed. The risk for infiltration of nerves and blood vessels is also high.
That’s why we use ultrasound-guided injections here at the Institute for Non-Surgical Orthopedics. We’re able to be extremely precise with our injections to ensure they are delivered exactly where they will be most effective, avoiding vascular and neural entities, which can lead to a better, safer, less painful outcome and faster recovery.

Peripheral Nerve Hydrodisection
A pinched or compressed nerve is the underlying source of a lot of musculoskeletal pain. This usually occurs in areas of the body where a nerve has to travel through a small space in the muscles. When these muscles become inflamed or injured, they can place pressure on the nerve, leading to stinging pain and/or numbness. Examples of this include common conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and sciatica. With peripheral nerve hydrodissection, a liquid solution is injected around the distressed nerve, and it provides a cushion between it and the surrounding tissues, relieving the pressure to stop the cause of pain.
Barbotage for Calcific Tendinitis
Calcific tendinitis is a painful condition that occurs when calcium accumulates on tendons. It can limit mobility and adversely affect your quality of life. If you are struggling with calcific tendinitis, our team is ready to help via a service known as barbotage. The procedure starts when we use musculoskeletal ultrasound to locate the exact location of calcium deposits. Then, we insert a needle to break them up. Soon after treatment, you may notice a great improvement in your condition.
