At Livingston Foot Care Specialists, we use soft tissue sonography (ultrasound therapy) to help diagnose a number of foot conditions that can be visualized better than with a conventional X-ray. Many soft tissue conditions do not even show up on an X-ray including:
- Inflammation of the plantar fascia (plantar fasciitis)
- Bursitis and ganglion cysts
- Inflamed or torn tendons
- Certain types of foreign bodies
- Certain tumors
- Periostitis (inflammation of the lining of the bones)
Ultrasound guided injection therapy allows our doctors to effectively deliver the medication in the specific area it’s needed.
