Norman Regional Health System

A musculoskeletal sports ultrasound is a specialized exam that looks specifically at your muscles, joints, ligaments, nerves and tendons. If you have pain or a concern with your joints, tendons, ligaments or muscles, a musculoskeletal ultrasound may help determine the source of your symptoms. Ultrasound can help determine the extent of the injury, sometimes to clarify if surgery is indicated, and assess how well your injuries are healing. During a musculoskeletal ultrasound a dynamic exam can be performed to watch your anatomy move in real time, such as examining how tendons move around joints and if a joint separates when stressed. Plus, as the patient, you can show us exactly where you feel your symptoms, so we can pinpoint your area of concern at the time of imaging. Ultrasound doesn’t use radiation, so it can be safely performed on all patients including children, pregnant women and babies and can be performed at the point of care in our office for your convenience!
