Musculoskeletal Ultrasound: Diagnosis & Injections

Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that provides pictures of muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and other soft tissues in the joints. Ultrasound exams do not use radiation (x-rays). The test is safe and painless and uses sound waves to produce the images. The ultrasound images help Dr. Willoughby diagnose and treat various orthopedic conditions. During the test, a gel is applied to the skin and a small hand-held device called a transducer glides over the skin to send sound waves through the joint. The sound waves bounce off the soft tissues and return to the transducer and a computer translates those sound waves into an image. Often ultrasound can be used to diagnose pain or conditions that are difficult to diagnose with other imaging techniques or tests.  It allows for dynamic evaluation of the joints and soft tissues and an interactive approach where the examiner can localize an area of pain in real time and visualize the muscles and bones while the patient is moving to help make a diagnosis that may have been otherwise missed. Dr. Willoughby may use an ultrasound test to help diagnose and treat: Tendon tears or tendinitis Muscle tears Masses or fluid that has collected in joints

Physiatry & Rehabilitation

Physiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with restoring function for a person who has been impaired as a result of a disease, disorder, pain or injury. Rehabilitation physicians (Physiatrists) are nerve, muscle, and bone experts who treat injuries or illnesses that affect how you move. Their goal is to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery. As a physiatrist, Dr. Willoughby will design a treatment plan that can help patients stay as active as possible at any age. Dr. Willoughby treats the whole person, not just the condition, restoring as much function and independence as possible.
