A non-invasive imaging technique used to diagnose foot disorders.
An ultrasound is a diagnosis method that uses a special probe to take an image of your foot in order to determine your foot condition. The probe emits sound waves into your body tissues, which are returned to the probe once reaching your body tissues and converted to an image. This image is used to diagnose and determine treatment for your foot condition.
Diagnostic ultrasound is one of the two types of ultrasound used and is a non-invasive imaging technique for soft tissue that is used to diagnose foot disorders. Therapeutic ultrasound, on the other hand, is used to assist in the treatment of soft tissue conditions and offers many restorative benefits.
Ultrasounds can be used to create an image of all the ligaments in your foot and ankle, plus the Achilles tendon, the plantar fascia, the posterior tibial tendon, and the peroneal tendons. Proper use requires an experienced ultrasound technician and a trained musculoskeletal radiologist, but ultrasounds prove to be extremely useful in helping with the diagnosis of foot conditions.

Review of Dr. Park
She is very, very good. She knows what she is doing and she doesn't give up no matter what. She keeps trying until she gets it right.
Review of Dr. Baker
We tried radio shockwave therapy and I was able to compete in the 2015 World Championships and helped the team win a bronze medal.
Review of Dr. Sorensen
He always has the best interest for me and always treated me with a smile. Always asking me questions, if I had any questions. He always wanted to know more in a personal level about his patients. He's very caring.
