Musculoskeletal Ultrasound-Guided Regenerative Medicine


Ultrasound imaging has mostly been utilized to visualize anatomical structures as well as to provide needle guidance in interventional procedures. Its advantage in assessing the musculoskeletal system in static images and, most especially, in conducting dynamic real-time images in motion has made it an invaluable tool in the rehabilitation of a patient. The practice of rehabilitative ultrasound imaging (RUSI) has become a novel method of therapy in teaching exercises in recent years. Initially used in teaching abdominal core control programs to patients with back pain, it is steadily branching as an adjunct to strengthening, proprioceptive, functional, and neurodynamic programs for other areas and conditions. This chapter aims to review the integration between real-time musculoskeletal ultrasound scanning and the performance of therapeutic exercises. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2022.
