At our clinic we focus on the integrated care between sports medicine doctor, physiotherapy, chiropractor and kinesiologist. After a thorough clinical assessment, we have the option to do a diagnostic ultrasound to specify the cause of your shoulder pain and to exclude trigger point areas.

Plasma infiltration for trigger point areas or shoulder pain is performed under ultrasound guidance. This insures that we reach the specific area of injury and at the right dosage. Follow up ultrasounds allow us to monitor the response on treatment and determine the correct rehabilitation.
