Real Time Ultrasound
Have you ever been to the gym, a Pilates class or your physio and been told to turn on your core muscles? How to perform this movement often happens without much guidance so you are left wondering if you’re doing it right or not.
Well now you can find out if you are doing it right. The staff at Peak Performance Sports Physiotherapy are trained in using the Real Time Ultrasound machine to assess your core muscle function.
This machine allows you, the patient, to see what muscles are working when you think you are doing a pelvic floor contraction or a core stomach muscle contraction. For this reason it helps you to understand if you are working the muscle effectively instead of just having to believe your physio or personal trainer or fitness instructor that you are!
This type of assessment is also used to assess the core muscle function before beginning our Clinical Pilates sessions to ensure you understand how to work your core effectively before beginning our classes.
