Dr Jenny Turner completes Masters in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound with Distinction
Healthcare is pleased and proud to announce that Dr Jenny Turner has now completed her Masters in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and was awarded a Distinction! This means that Healthcare are now able to offer a “one stop shop” for assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal problems.
Dr Turner can use the ultrasound machine at St Martin’s Health Centre to help confirm the diagnosis in a wide variety of musculoskeletal problems. She is also able to use ultrasound to guide a large range of joint and soft tissue injections. Ultrasound guidance helps to increase the accuracy of the injection and decrease the pain of the procedure. Injections available include corticosteroids for conditions such as inflamed bursae and tendons, sclerosants for partial tendon tears, whole blood injections for chronic tendinopathy and hyaluronic acid injections to help ease osteoarthritis.
