Ultrasound (sonography) at Lanserhof at The Arts Club in London
Ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a standard practice in modern medicine and can be used in many different ways. At Lanserhof at The Arts Club, we use ultrasound as both a diagnostic and therapeutic method for various ailments and disease patterns. Sonography provides detailed images of your organs, tissues and joints and is also applied in pain therapy.
Ultrasonography for Precise Injections
At Lanserhof at The Arts Club, we use ultrasound to place injections precisely, for example in PRP therapy. PRP therapy is part of the autohemotherapy and is a popular treatment method in sports medicine. The injected platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is rich in growth factors that promote self-healing. Typically, injections of PRP are used for injuries of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. Ultrasound is used to pinpoint the exact location of the injury, so the injection can be placed correctly. Ultrasound is also used in pain therapies and local anesthesia to identify even the smallest tissue structures and to administer medication with the highest accuracy.
Physiotherapy with Ultrasound in London
Our physiotherapists at Lanserhof at The Arts Club use ultrasound in electrotherapy in order to treat discomforts in joints, tendons, ligaments and the spine. The ultrasound head generates heat and at the same time, the sound waves massage the affected tissue. This stimulates your blood circulation and reduces pain.
