MRI & Diagnostic

To help us diagnose and assist with your treatment we can help by providing referals for MRI and diagnostic testing with recognised local providers

Sometimes assessing something manually just doesn’t give you all the information you need so imagine being able to see inside that frozen shoulder or tennis elbow or take a good look at that painful tendon or arthritic knee.

Ultrasound scanning is super useful in aiding our diagnosis of injuries and gives us real time pictures of the ‘inner workings’ of your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. It can provide us with detailed images of muscle tears or damage to tendons for example and is an excellent tool to scan a joint whilst it is moving (you can’t do that with an MRI). It also enables us to perform intricate treatments like ultrasound guided injections. If you have ever had a ‘blind’ cortisone injection you’ll know they can be a little hit and miss!

The scans are performed by a specialists in diagnostic scanning who has spent many years scanning injuries and processing the findings, (you have to look at a lot of healthy tendons to know what a poorly one looks like!) Also, the equipment we use is the best money can buy, you need to know that you are in good hands.


It's always good to receive your feeback...

  Just a quick line Chris to say that I’ve just got back from the second lot of skiing this year and that the knees have held up well thanks to your expert advice and the exercise regime you gave me. I wouldn’t have thought it possible to keep on with the skiing – and it probably wouldn’t have been without your intervention.

  I was very pleased with the treatment that my daughter received at Swansea Physiotherapy. I have used Chris & Co several times over the past five years and would definitely recommend.
