Aoife uses an Ultrasound machine to assess muscle activity including the abdominal wall (Rectus Diastasis), core/deep system activation and pelvic floor activity.
Quite often we have to use the word “imagine” with our patients to help them activate deep/core muscles.
Ultrasound imaging is very beneficial to the patient to allow them to visually see the muscles activating on screen and help them to recruit the correct muscle in order to strengthen it.
*We use this machine for rehabilitation not for diagnosing. If you require a diagnostic scan please see your doctor.
