Real Time Ultrasound Imaging
The lumbar spine is stabilised by very deep muscles in the abdomen. These muscles are difficult to assess and also difficult to learn to control, however correct function is essential to maintain good spinal health.
After a back injury or an episode of low back pain these stabilising muscles often weaken and become unable to support the spine.
Real time ultrasound allows our skilled physiotherapists to guide you through working the correct muscles to support your spine.
Once you have learned to support your back with this method, you may be able to progress to one of our professionally supervised clinical Pilates classes.
