Ultrasound

Do you want a clear diagnosis of your complaint? Ultrasound offers a solution. Ultrasound is an addition to the physiotherapeutic examination to make a clear(er) diagnosis. It is also used when physiotherapeutic treatments do not have the desired result.


What is ultrasound suitable for?

A well-known ultrasound is the pregnancy ultrasound. However, ultrasound can also visualize muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. For pain complaints from these tissues, ultrasound is increasingly used instead of X-ray or MRI. Ultrasound is particularly suitable for superficial disorders. For example
bursitis or tendon complaints of the shoulder, ultrasound is indispensable.


What is the benefit of ultrasound in our practice?

  • You have an immediate diagnosis.
  • You don’t have to go to the hospital, the costs are low, you don’t have to use your deductible and there are no waiting lists.
  • You do not need a referral from your primary care physician.
  • The ultrasound technician comes to our practice so the findings are also reported back to us directly.
  • Ultrasound is quick, gives no radiation exposure and is pain free.
  • Ultrasound provides the opportunity to view tissues as they move.


How long does it take and what is the cost?

The examination takes about 20 minutes and is part of the physiotherapeutic examination. This is reimbursed by your health insurer as a session of physiotherapy. As a practice we ask a personal contribution of € 8,50. If you do not have an additional package, then the regular rates apply.

Who is conducting the research?
Ultrasound is a practical and difficult to learn examination method that requires a lot of time and study. That is why we work together with Ivo Nieuwenhuis and Ruben Schuurmans of EchoLokaal (www.echolokaal.nl). They have been working as physiotherapists for over 15 years and in recent years have trained in ultrasound for physiotherapists, general practitioners and orthopedic surgeons.
