Jointcare - Ultrasound


Dr Jenny Turner is able to offer both diagnostic and ultrasound guided injections as part of her assessment and treatment of joints, muscles and tendons. The use of a portable ultrasound machine within the St Martins Health Centre is an invaluable tool to help look at the injured or painful part of your body and can help to instantly confirm the diagnosis. The use of real-time ultrasound scanning during movement is useful to look at the activation patterns of muscle groups.
