Modern musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) uses safe, non-invasive, high-frequency sound waves to produce amazingly detailed, high-resolution, real-time images of the musculoskeletal system.  Everyone can undergo an ultrasound and in lots of cases, finer detail can be seen than MRI.  Real-time imaging means we can see inside the body and add movement to see how tissues behave and are able to more accurately diagnose the problem. The biggest benefit of this technology is to be able to see the problem, treat it, then reassess the problem all at North Michigan Avenue Chiropractic in Downtown Chicago.  Not only is it more cost-effective than MRI, but it is also faster and can be more accurate.
